Manufacturer: Riders Choice
Model: Crates Custom Wade Saddle
Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: Ebay $900+
Likes: The basket stamping
Dislikes: The tree was a real piece of junk that give you nightmares when shopping for saddles.
Quality: Extremely poorly made. The tree was was some cheap wooden garbage with no covering at all and was left bare. The tree was so bad that the cantle was actually skewed several inches to the right making it impossible and dangerous to ride. The leather was thick and cheap, definitely not vegetable tanned and definitely not Hermann Oak as promised. The concho's were not Montana Silversmith's as promised, the fleece was not real wool as promised. The saddle was a total fake. It had big humps and bumps all over the seat because the tree was not smooth. Same for the pommel along with flat places from poor tree carving.
Summary: Total fraud! Do not buy! He did refund but I lost two months for them to make this saddle. They circumvented ebay by sending a paypal invoice so I could not leave fb.
