Purchase: I bought this saddle from Arney's tack shop in Clayton. I bought it to become my jumping saddle aware that my horse is difficult to fit. I found it to be the most comfortable saddle in the shop, with the best fit for my horse. I bought it for $1,200.
Likes: This saddle is very well made with nice stitching and soft leather. It is great for jumping or flat work and is suitable for practice and flashy in the show ring. The saddle breaks in very quickly and is very comfortable. It has wool flocking and is easily fitted to many different horses. The exchangeable gullet system is a big plus!
Dislikes: The saddle scratches easily because of the soft leather, but with the right care it is fine.
Quality: This saddle is very well made with nice stitching and soft leather. The nice forward flaps are great for jumping.
Summary: There is not much that I don't like about this saddle. Overall it is a fantastic saddle and I really enjoy riding in it. The soft leather breaks in fast and makes it a very comfortable ride. If you have a hard to fit horse, change horses often, or are looking for a great jumping saddle that is both comfortable and affordable this is definitely the saddle for you! This saddle is available through Dover Saddlery for $995.
