Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle from E-Bay for a whopping $60.00! There is an e-Bay store named Equiteric that sells these too, as my friend has the brown one that she paid $80.00 for.

Likes: For one, the low price. Secondly, when I saw this saddle in life, I couldn't believe it is not real leather. I actually had to smell it, to reassure myself that the company hadn't sent me the wrong saddle. It is really nice looking. It has the changeable gullet system and movable knee blocks to custom fit to the riders preference.

Dislikes: I don't like that it is squeaky when I ride. It is hard to adjust the stirrup leathers because of the synthetic material. (Purchased separately) and also the billets are tuff to get the girth up tight enough. Again, might be the fault of the girth company-(Wintec) but that could be a similar problem with any new synthetic saddle with synthetic accessories.

Quality: I think the construction is nice, the stitching is all even and not sloppy at all. The stirrup bars are very recessed, so they do not bruise the riders thighs.

Summary: I haven't had this saddle for very long, so I don't know the longevity of it, But, so far, I feel like I got an excellent deal. Definitely worth the money.
