Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle from an online tack shop and paid about $500 for it. (including the cair panel system and the set of gullets)

Likes: Despite what I've heard, I really like this saddle. I love how it is easy to clean and although it is synthetic, it looks very nice and the color doesn't fade. I find it to be very comfortable and the cair panels are great for my horse. I've had this saddle for about two years and the cair panels have not deflated...despite what others have said. I love the easy gullet change system and I find it very easy to change the gullets. The saddle fits my horse very nicely and it is a pleasure to ride in.

Dislikes: I don't really like how difficult it is to get the stirrup leathers on the bars...(not that big of a deal tho). Another thing is, I usually clean it the day before a show, and sometimes on the day of the show, the suede knee rolls are still wet, and the dye turns the knee patches of my breeches brown.

Quality: This saddle is very well made and after two years of riding in it multiple times a day, every has held up very well. Nothing on my saddle has been worn, or broken.

Summary: I really like this saddle and I recommend it to anyone who wants a semi-cheap, yet good quality saddle.
