Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle From Dover Tack Shop. It was 575.00
Likes: It seemed well made. Very easy to care for.
Dislikes: The saddle came no wheres near fitting me. But neither did it fit my horse. After my horse started refusing to be mounted I located a professional saddle fitter. He made sure the saddle had the right gullet installed and then watched the saddle in action. He said it was terribly painful to my horse. It bounced all over and kept me behind my horses movement all the time. It was a relief to hear someone say its the saddles fault and not mine. So beware of the saddle sizing for the rider. I think this saddle is harder to fit to the horse than they say. There is nothing unusual about my horses back. He is a big friesian cross. He is exactly the type of horse this saddle is supposed to be made for. .
Quality: It is well made and easy to care for. The company does seem to care about the quality of their product. I just think they screwed up on this design.
Summary: This saddle rode so badly that I wouldn't recommend it to anybody unless they have a professional on hand so they can watch and see if their horse is showing signs of discomfort. It just doesn't fit as easily as they make it sound.
Usefulness Rating: 2.7 out of 5.
