Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought it from someone who was selling her horse tack for $175, which included fittings and 2 saddle pads, for light trail riding. I've seen it go for around $199 in Valley Vet catalogues.
Likes: The 16" seat is nice. The leather seems to be pretty sturdy.
Dislikes: The gullets are too short, and it just doesn't sit on a horse right no matter how you position it. My horse's withers are about average, but I noticed it kept sliding around without a breastplate too.
Quality: The construction seems to be pretty good, but since it was a previously used saddle I am not quite sure how to rate the quality besides "fair" in its present condition.
Summary: It's good for teaching a horse to get used to a saddle, but good luck getting it to fit a horse for riding (unless you have a breastplate and some very good padding).
