Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle at a local tack shop on clearance for $380.
Likes: I like that you can clean it w/ soap and water so it is easy to clean and secure for flatwork.
Dislikes: After 6 months of riding on this saddle 3-5 times/week, the suede seat started wearing out. And even though I did the gullet change thing, it still didn't fit my horse as caused many problems. The velcro knee rolls get caught on my sleeve when i do the girth, and it is hard to tell if it fits with the CAIR panels, since they fit different when you ride, and it scratches on the panels easily.
Quality: Ok quality. Tree doesn't fit even after gullet change, and the Cair panels are stiff, but the overall structure is good.
Summary: This saddle is a good pleasure saddle if it fits your horse, but i wouldn't show in it or do a lot of jumping.
