Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I purchased this saddle almost new on Dreamhorse.com for $1350. I wanted to try an Ortho Flex as I'd heard nothing but good things about them and how comfortable they were for the horse.
Likes: The heck with my horses comfort! This saddle is like sitting on a couch - bar none the most comfortable western saddle I've ever ridden in. I love the wide stirrups and it places your legs in just the right position. Also my horse really does seem to like it.
Dislikes: The only thing I would change is that I would probably get one with a rough-out seat. This one has a smooth seat and after riding a rough out for many years on my old saddle I feel like I'm slipping around a little. Not enough to make me go back to my old saddle however.
Quality: This saddle is made by the original Ortho Flex Company and has excellent construction quality. I've heard the new company saddles aren't quite as well made but that's only a rumor as I have no experience with the new company saddles.
Summary: I would recommend this saddle to anyone that spends long hours in the saddle or like to go on trail rides.
Usefulness Rating: 2.83333 out of 5.
