For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Flex Rider
Model: Close Contact Saddle
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I paid $500 for it brand new on e-bay after my sister bought hers for $600 used at a local tack shop.

Likes: i like how comfortable it is and that is fits practically any horse you put it on with just the regular tree! The color is also really nice and the dye stays in well. Easy to put leathers in as well. It takes oil very well too! I thought my position was rather nice in it.

Dislikes: I didn't like how hard it is to break in. It seemed like it took FOREVER to break in.

Quality: It is a very nice put together saddle. I absolutely love it. It is VERY comfortable. The stitching is nice and doesn't threaten to break after more than a year of wear.

Summary: I think that is is a pretty nice saddle for the cost. It just seemed rather hard to break in even with the nice leather. Nicer saddles would break in easier but would also cost more. Overall i think this is a nice saddle for the price range.
