Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle from Trumbull Mountain Saddle Shop for $2300. I tried Pessoa, Bates, Amerigo, Ovation, Keiffer Auchen, Thorowgood and Frank Baines, all to find a saddle that fit my old horse - and this one did, beautifully.

Likes: This saddle is unmistakably hand made and unusually supple. The leather is soft yet durable, and the best quality of any other saddle I have ever seen; the generously flocked panels are pliable and comfortable, also covered in a soft leather - they conformed within a week to my horse's back, without losing any cushion. Nothing about this saddle is rigid or restrictive - it is impressively comfortable for both me and my horse.

Dislikes: Nothing.

Quality: Typical of saddles constructed in Walsall, England, the quality and construction is superior - I would say it is much better than any of the other saddles I looked at or tried. It is available custom made at no extra charge with your choice of panels, blocks, colors and textures of leather and is delivered in about six weeks. Also available as options (which I did not choose) are trapezius panels which offer a broader area of weigh dispersal; upswept panels and a long-life, breathable cloth panel covering - used mostly for the dressage and endurance models.

Summary: It is an expensive saddle, so not an easy purchase, but in my opinion, well worth the price. I look forward to riding in it for many years.
