Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I acquired this saddle online from Bucks County Saddlery for approximately $800.00.

Likes: The only thing that I can say I liked about this saddle was the seat and knee roles were made of very soft leather. However the rest of the saddle was poorly made and the leather felt like it could almost have been made of plastic.

Dislikes: There is a lot that I don't like about this saddle. The knee rolls were way to far forward for one (my knees didn't even come close to touching them). The dye started rubbing off the first ride. Like stated before some of the leather was so hard and stiff it felt like plastic. It was very slippery to ride in and very unbalanced. I do not recommend this saddle.

Quality: This Saddle has very poor construction. It was not properly balanced. The knee rolls to far forward. The dye was very poor quality.

Summary: DO NOT GET THIS SADDLE. It is very poorly made and I would not recommend it to anyone.
