Model: Extra Light
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle on ebay for $700. It was essentially new.
Likes: This saddle is the ultimate in close contact. It has no panels so you can really feel your horse. The saddle I bought is buffalo leather and it's very high quality. I find the saddle to be very stable on my two horses, even though they have different conformation. The stirrup position on this saddle is very good (not too far forward). I had tried a Barefoot Cheyenne and it put me in a chair seat. I don't have the same problem with the Cheyenne. The saddle is very light weight.
Dislikes: When I first got it the seat seemed hard. I used a sheepskin seat cover on it for awhile and that made it nice and comfy.
Quality: Extremely well made. The leather is very nice.
Summary: An excellent saddle that I enjoy using. I find it well balanced and secure. Even when my TB gets frisky, I have had no problems with slipping and feel quite stable in it.
Usefulness Rating: 2 out of 5.
