Trail Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Crest Ridge Saddlery
Model: The Crusade
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: After almost giving up on find a saddle to fit me and my horse, I found Crest Ridge Saddlery. I purchased a $1200 Crusade direct from Crest Ridge. Saddle fit is not a "one size fits all" or even a "ten sizes fits all" proposition. It is a subtle and complicated art form that takes time and care. It took me three months of research to find this saddle. I've learned a lot and it was worth the effort.

Likes: My horse is small and short backed and I am 6 ft. tall. I needed a saddle with a shorter tree and yet with a larger seat. Try and find this anywhere else. This saddle was essentially my only choice. But, it was also good looking, well constructed, and well appointed.

Dislikes: Nothing not to like.

Quality: Construction and quality is excellent. How can they sell it so inexpensively.

Summary: Debra at Crest Ridge is the "energizer bunny" of saddle fit. She keeps going and going, and going until you have a saddle that really fits your horse and you have the right equipment to go with it. Be prepared to send pictures of your horse, and to work with Debra until you get it right. Even months in to owning this saddle, Debra is still working with me on little things I have discovered over time that I need help with. If you buy a Crest Ridge Saddle and don't like something about it, don't complain to the world, talk to Debra. She will go out of her way to make it right.
