Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle off of ebay because I was having difficulty finding my balance in the saddle I previously bought. I paid 1450.00 for the saddle.

Likes: I love the wide seat which really helps you to stay put and balance yourself in the saddle, plus the padded knee rolls have just enough thickness, but not too much. It is the most comfortable ride I have had, even compared to other top brands. I have also found that I am not holding onto the horse's mouth for balance.

Dislikes: The only dislike per say, or annoyance, is that the saddle is very wide, so some of my fitted saddle pads are not wide enough to cover the entire back of the saddle underneath the horse.

Quality: Top quality leather and very solid construction!

Summary: I would recommend this saddle to anyone...it fits my horse perfectly, plus comes with the adjustable gullet system and cair panels. I have seen a great change in the horse as well and I think he is more comfortable as a result of the new saddle.
