Manufacturer: Syd Hill
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: bought this saddle second hand through the endurance.net website
Likes: I love the high quality of this saddle. The leather is extremely supple and strong. The saddle is made specifically for endurance and is fairly low in profile. The brass fittings are also very well made. I think all Syd Hill saddles are great but this one really exceeds my expectations. The wool panels underside spread the weight evenly across the horses back making it comfortable for endurance or long hours in the saddle. No sore backed horses with this one.
Dislikes: Some people may have trouble getting used to the poleys and may find them restrictive at first. The seat is also a lower profile than most Aussies. I personally like this but it is something to be aware of.
Quality: Very well made. Excellent quality leather and well put together. No corners cut on this one.
Summary: I highly recommend this saddle to endurance riders or anyone wanting a comfortable saddle for both horse and rider.
Usefulness Rating: 1 out of 5.
