Purchase: I purchased my Eli Miller saddle on (gulp) Ebay. I paid nearly full price for what this same saddle costs now, a bit under $900.
Likes: First of all the weight: it's under 25 lbs. All leather, pared-down. The seat is "suspended" so you don't sit on the tree, but in a suspended "hammock" type of seat. Wood tree. Beautiful leather, craftsmanship, no break in. Endurance EZ ride stirrups and the suspended seat made all my aches, numb toes, back soreness, knee pain go away. I can ride for hours on end with absolutely NO soreness. Consistent tooling, stitching, color from saddle to tack. There are lots of tree options. I like working with the Millers' because they will build with multiple options at very little cost. Very reasonably priced.
Dislikes: Not much I don't like about these saddles.
Quality: No break-in for leather, attention to detail, edges, tooling, balance. The leather is buttery. Love the center-fire rigging, it's very secure. Love how you can build your saddle with any/all the options. Stitching is impeccable, consistent in color from saddle to matching tack. My Buena Vista was built in 2002 and it it ridden in five days a week, it keeps getting better and better.
Summary: Incredible saddle for the money!
