Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: After months of looking for a saddle to fit a wide short backed horse I found this one at a tack store for $1050.
Likes: It fit my mare well. There isn't many wide trees out there on models that fit short backs. It is light enough for me to throw up on the tall horses. I love the Softee Leather. There is no break in time on this saddle. The first time I rode in this saddle it was like I had been riding in it daily for the last 10 years. The leather is so soft and flexable it did not bother my knees at all. The three way rigging is good for fitting to different horses. The crupper D ring in the back is a nice feature for trail riding. When I bought it I was a little worried about the idea of a Flex tree but after riding a year in this saddle I can feel the difference when I go back to a solid tree. I have a great feel for the horse with the flex tree.
Dislikes: I would have like more options as far as tooling and color choice.
Quality: The workmanship is good and solid. The leather is good quality and not stiff at all. The little bit of silver on this modle is good and is just enough to add a touch of class but not so much it looks out of place.
Summary: For the price there isn't another saddle that can beat this one. There are cheaper flex tree saddles out there but not of this quality.
Usefulness Rating: 2.71429 out of 5.
