Yancey Gaited saddle
Manufacturer: Jim Yancey
Model: Yancey Gaited saddle
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I had bought a Bob Marshall treeless, its was a great saddle, but just not for me. So I was on a hunt for something different, one day I saw a picture on the paso fino forum, of a girl on her paso, sitting on a saddle that caught my eye, I e-mailed her and she told me about the saddle. I enquired at Pasofinoland.com and talked to Gail, the more she told me about this saddle and the pictures, I knew this was the one. I ordered the one with no horn, chestnut with black seat, and with fenders. The cost was $1295.00 US. Seeing that I am from Canada, it cost me a bit more, This is the best ever investment I have ever made. I had the saddle sent to a place across the line, so I would not have to wait forever for it to get through customs.
Likes: The saddle is just a excellent made saddle, done with great care. Beautiful leather, I can find no flaws in it at all. I love the position of the stirrups, the cinching is really great, holds the saddle in place no slipping, no need to cinch down hard. The seat is very comfortable, after riding in the ring and then going out on the trail, I come back and put the saddle on my other horse and do the same thing, I have never been sore. Both my horses gait better and are more consistent.
Dislikes: To me there is nothing to dislike.
Quality: construction is excellent, quality is excellent.
Summary: My thoughts on this saddle this is the last saddle I will purchase, to me I have finally found the perfect saddle
