Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I never actually owned this saddle, but have borrowed it from a lady at my barn for a while now. If I was to buy this saddle (which I haven't because the flaps are quite to short for me, personally, because this Tad is custom)I would've paid about $3,000 for it, which is good considering they retail for about $4,600 new.
Likes: The thing I really love about the saddle is it's security over fences. It really holds my leg in a great position, and keeps me secure. It looks great, and has gel-like knee pads that I adore. It's panels are also made out of this gel-like material. This saddle fits my horse really well, and she is very hard to fit. It's also used by a ton of top trainers!
Dislikes: The seat is a little hard, but then again, it's a jumping saddle, not for comfort. Of course it is pricey, but it is so much nicer than all the cheaper ones.
Quality: The quality and construction of the Tad is phenomenal, this saddle is about four years old and there are no places were the leather's dye has faded, or the stitching has come out or loosened.
Summary: Overall, I'd say this is probably one of the best saddles you can buy, very nice quality and security. I, personally, am more of a fan of Antares saddles, but the Tad is very close second. Yes, it's pricey, but it lasts longer and is something you're proud to put on your horse's back! Also, it fits nearly every horseQ!
