Category: Barrel Saddles

Purchase: BOUGHT THIS SADDLE LIGHTLY USED FOR $1,100.00 DIRECTLY FROM TESKEY'S

Likes: THE SADDLE IS EXTREMELY WELL MADE AND WILL LAST FOREVER. THE DESIGN IS VERY ATTRACTIVE AND THE TOOLING IS ONE OF THE BEST. FITS MY HORSES WELL AS LONG AS I USE A PAD NO LESS THAN 1".

Dislikes: THE SEAT FOR TWO REASONS. FIRST, I GOT AN OSTRICH SKIN WHICH IS SLIPPERY AND HARD. SECOND, THE SEAT, FOR SOME REASON, THROWS ME FORWARD ALL THE TIME. ALTHOUGHT IT HAS A 5" CANTLE, THE SEAT IS NOT DEEP ENOUGH WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR BARREL RACING. I CONTINUE TO FLY FORWARD AND OUT OF MY SEAT WHICH IS VERY ANNOYING. I BOUGHT THIS SADDLE WHEN I STARTED RIDING BUT NOW THAT I'VE BEEN RIDING FOR AWHILE, I'VE REALIZED HOW POOR MY SEAT CONFORMATION IS IN THIS SADDLE. ADDITIONALLY, THE FENDERS DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FORWARD SWING TO THEM. I HAD TO HAVE THEM V-NOTCHED WHICH HELPS BUT IT STILL ISN'T THE BEST.

Quality: THE CONSTRUCTION AND QUALITY OF THIS SADDLE IS SUPERIOR TO THAT OF PRODUCTION LINE SADDLES (I.E., NEW CIRCLE Y'S, ETC.)THE LEATHER IS WONDERFUL AND I GIVE AN OUTSTANDING RATING IN THIS REGARD.

Summary: TESKEY'S MAKES A GREAT SADDLE, GREAT QUALITY, NON MASS PRODUCTION, WITH CUSTOM DESIGN AVAILABILITY (WITH LIMITATIONS). TESKEY'S FOLKS ARE VERY NICE TO DEAL WITH, AS WELL. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SADDLE TO A NOVICE RIDER BECAUSE, IN MY OPINION, IT WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR SEAT. FOR THE INTERMEDIATE TO EXPERIENCED RIDER, YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT YOU WANT AND BE SURE TO DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE BEFORE PURCHASING ANY SADDLE.
