Manufacturer: Crest Ridge Saddlery
Model: 1880 Wade Tree Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: Acquired from Crest Ridge. Ordered on line. Paid $1774.00 including roping tree and shipping. Saddle was bought to replace poor fitting saddle,
Likes: The saddle fits; is comfortable to ride in, and looks great. I also like the fact that the stirrups are positioned correctly and this combined with the shape of the seat and tree puts the rider in a correct position. Customer service was excellent.
Dislikes: I replaced the heavy duty leather latigo with a nylon latigo, because I did not like the bulk of the thick leather latigo under my leg. Purists, that have this problem may wish to replace with a narrower, lighter weight leather latigo. In any case this is a trivial issue considering the overall value of the saddle. Customer service is excellent.
Quality: The fit and finish of the saddle are excellent. Quality is first rate.
Summary: Having bought quite a few saddles and looked at many more, I have never seen this type of value for the cost.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
