Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: Purchased this saddle because I was told that it might be a good saddle for the price you can buy it for on ebay, paid $650 for the saddle and $35 for the shipping.
Likes: Didn't like much of this saddle after trying it out.
Dislikes: Wasn't made that good, the pommel area seamed to be separating from the saddle, the stirrups where made set way to far back, and the cinch rode way to far back on the horse, no matter how I tried it was designed that when you put the saddle on the horse the girth/cinch was 6 or 7 inches too far back, if you put it where the girth was where it should be the saddle was on the horses neck. after riding in the saddle it creased in the middle, basically folded in half and the crease would not come out, it caused my horse to have a sour back and creased right in my crotch area. was not at all comfortable to ride in for me or my horse.
Quality: leather separated, pommel was coming off after only 3 rides, seller didn't respond back to make good on the sale.
Summary: Wouldn't buy this saddle again, may be after some time they can better their product, but us buyers are the ginny pigs for the products when they come out.
