Manufacturer: Continental Saddlery
Model: Penni Gerardi Reiner
Category: Reining Saddles
Purchase: The best price I found was on www.trinitytack.com. The prices are well below MSRP and shipping was free. I'm not a reiner, but I got this saddle as a pleasure saddle, and wanted something with a fairly narrow twist. I was looking for something a little out of the ordinary and high quality. I have heard only good things about Continental's saddles and thought I'd give it a try.
Likes: The seat keeps you were you need to be. The fenders are pre-turned and my knees and ankles no longer bother me. The stitching is straight, the leather is soft and the conchos used are VERY nice. The Steele Equi-flex tree fits all our horses, and even some friends horses! The seat is Nubuc and padded with a closed cell special foam making it SUPER comfortable. The tooling, craftsmanship and attention to detail is beautiful. I get a ton of compliments on this saddle and I'll probably never sell it (even though I hear the resale value on them is pretty good). I love it that much!
Quality: Supple Leather Attention to detail Beautiful tooling and conchos Straight stitching Nicely padded seat Pre-turned fenders are a HUGE plus!
Summary: I will wholeheartedly recommend these saddles to anyone. Don't let the advertising by larger manufacturers like Circle Y brainwash you into thinking THEY are the best. In my humble opinion the quality and craftsmanship on Continental Saddlery's products blow them out of the water (or the arena)!
