Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I got this from some online place (sorry it was a while ago) that had it for about $189.00. It was the least expensive of all the places I looked and I was on a tight budget.
Likes: I love this saddle. Ok, I do not like to use saddles (I much prefer bareback...), but when I do use it, it is comfortable, easy to clean and fit my horse very well. Vacuuming is the only way I have found to get it really clean for a show, but I don't mind taking my little one out and giving it a once over. The seat is just the right depth for me and I find it really easy to 2-point.
Dislikes: The girth strap things ( idea what the name is sorry...) take a looong time to break in, but it is rubber/ plastic. I took a little time to work with them (pulling twisting etc) while D'artagnan was grazing and it helped a bunch.
Quality: Wonderful quality. I've been using it for about 2 years now and I love it. (But I'm a Wintec fanatic so...)
Summary: Wonderful saddle for a great price. Doesn't beat leather, but it is a lovely substitute.
Usefulness Rating: 2.71429 out of 5.
