Crest Ridge Saddlery
For Sale on eBay
Manufacturer: Crest Ridge Saddlery
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I have a spotted gaited gelding he is as wide as he is tall.
I started looking for a saddle, when I was putting on the the miles for conditioning. I found my horse was getting sore in his back, after a few time using a saddle.
I went through 9 saddles, all of them claiming they were for gaited horses,(flex tree,ect).
As a farrier in Az. I started looking more at the backs of gaited horse & found out that most gaited horses have a back like a mule, plus shoulders move the same.
I started searching the web for mule saddles, because a mule saddle open up in front to give room for the shoulder to move freely.
I found Crest Ridge Saddlery which makes mule saddles as well as gaited saddles, with a J bar tree. Which means it opens up in front for the shoulders, plus rolls up a little at the end of tree for the hip, to move free.
I paid around a $1000.00 for the saddle. AFTER USING THE SADDLE FOR A YEAR I WOULD HAVE PAID TWICE THAT.
Likes: I competed in long distance riding. I have never been sore, saddle never squeaked, my horse has not been sore,( it works).
Plus I can where my jeans & cowboy hat & come out of a 50 mile race as fresh as I went in.
Add features are all the tie rings & some what lite weight.
Bottom line (This One Fits)
Quality: I put over 1000 miles on this saddle. In rain, snow, dirt, rocks, & hot weather.
This saddle still looks like new. This saddle is one tough HOMBRE.
Summary: Anyone buying this saddle or working with Crest Ridge will be happy with them.
I just tried this saddle on my Paint mare, which is not gaited it working very well it fit her as well.
WOW!!! I have one saddle that works for both horses.
