Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought the saddle from a local english tack shop, and paid $800. (it was on sale from $1,200.)

Likes: It definitely held up very well. I've had it for five years, and am pretty rough on it, but still not a scratch or dent. The leather is a very pretty colour, that shines well. I also once left it out in the rain overnight, and strangely enough, no damage to be found! A very tough and beautiful saddle!

Dislikes: This saddle has a VERY VERY hard seat. And on horses that are less than a smooth ride, can literally be painful. Also took a very long time to brake in. The leather was hard for about the first year.

Quality: A very high quality saddle for show and schooling. Well - made and beautiful.

Summary: This is a rather expensive, but great buy. It is as sturdy as a rock, but feels like one to ride in!
