Imus 4Beat Endurance Saddle w/ English Leathers
Manufacturer: Brenda Imus
Model: Imus 4Beat Endurance Saddle w/ English Leathers
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle for $1150 on clearance (they retail about $1600, I think) from the manufacturer on www.gaitsofgold.com after test riding one of these saddles on my new horse.
Likes: This saddle is COMFY!!! It has supracore padding around the saddle tree to cushion the horse and under the seat for the rider's comfort also. It is a very nice saddle for trails, as the stirrups are set forward about an inch more than the average saddle and provide AMAZING knees and ankle relief. I have a lot of trouble with my leg cramping up after a ride and this has never happened with this saddle. not even sore!
This saddle is made with very high quality standards and is a good buy for a trail or recreational rider. if you are looking for a show or schooling/ring saddle, look elsewhere.
Dislikes: However it is only OK to school in because to the stirrup placement. It is difficult to keep your feet properly lined up in an equitation position.
if you are looking for a show or schooling/ring saddle, look elsewhere.
Quality: Very good construction and quality. This looks like a built-to-last type of saddle. Quality leather and materials.
Summary: I give this an A+ for trail/endurance/recreational riding, but would have to say look elsewhere if you are looking for a saddle to school or do ringwork in because of the forward stirrup placement.
