Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I got this saddle when i was 11, and have had it for two years. We got it on e-bay for about 1,300.
Likes: The seat is comfortable and won't give you soars or pains because it is very cushioned.
Dislikes: I don't know if it's just because I'm a kid, but i don't like how i feel in the saddle. When i first got it, my legs would fall backward every time i went over a jump. I also don't like the way it looks on me and my horse. My horse is a 15'3 hand grey and the saddle looks huge on him. This saddle would probably be better for an adult on a larger horse.
Quality: The saddle has nice, soft leather, though it does stain easily if you put saddle soap on it for too long. It is very cushioned and has an adjustable gullet system for the comfort of your horse. :)
Summary: I don't like this saddle, and my friends and young trainer don't either, but my mom does. I would definitely suggest it for more full-grown people.
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
