Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle from Equestrian Collections for about $550.
Likes: I liked the saddle overall. I have ridden in it on the trail for HOURS at a time and was comfortable. The leather is supple and it seems to be well constructed. When I bought it I was looking for a cheaper all purpose saddle because I was just getting into riding again. It was a very good fit. I was not disappointed.
Dislikes: I bought the more straight flap version. It is hard with all purpose saddles to be happy doing everything. It wouldn't work well if you are going to jump anything over say, 3 feet or so. But, if you are going to do more jumping, simply buy the more forward cut version! Also, at times I feel like the saddle puts me into a chair seat (but maybe it's just my riding:))
Quality: Good quality. Fits several different horses.
Summary: From Equestrian Outfitters website: "The Avalon Lexington Event saddle is built for the rider who wants to start out right. Good balance - padded flap, knee roll, and cushioned seat. Memory foam panels. Excellent for the beginner to intermediate rider. Won't break the bank either!" I would recommend this saddle to my friends!
Usefulness Rating: 2.2 out of 5.
