Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Received a $350 package deal at my local tack store - was in search of a cheap first saddle after my bank account was wiped out by the purchase of my not-so-cheap first horse.

Likes: Found it suitable for the schooling show ring, easy to maintain, durable and the changeable gullet system allowed me some room for error when fitting it to the horse. Great value, EXTREMELY comfortable, durable as far as long, strenuous rides - my narrow thoroughbred loves it just as much as my clyde cross, never had a grumpy horse under this saddle.

Dislikes: The saddle does wear fast - my half chaps have rubbed away some of the synthetic where my leg sits. However, that being the only downfall, I wouldn't expect a saddle at this price to be of such fantastic value.

Quality: Very good - sturdy tree, easy to change gullet system.

Summary: Worth your money.
