Manufacturer: Black Country
Model: Equinox II
Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I purchased the saddle from Trumbull Mountain Tack shop. I was very pleased with the outstanding customer service and knowledge these people provide.
Likes: This saddle is made from Buffalo leather and it is the most comfortable saddle to ride in for long rides 5 hours and up. The saddle is made very well and the surge material used is breathable and therefore very cooling for the horse. I can't say enough good things about this saddle. I will buy another for my other trail horse because this saddle is so conforming to rider and horse.
Dislikes: Nothing at all, the monoflap style offers great close contact and doesn't bother my leg that has even Lymphedema. I ride for 5 hours or more and my Draft cross has a lot of swing and movement and this saddle makes my rides very soft and smooth.
Quality: Just excellent, the quality of the leather gives you a secure seat yet soft and forming to the horse. I love this saddle and the price is o.k when it is a great product.
Summary: It is the best saddle that I ever owned and I have absolute no complaint at all. A saddle you get in for the first time and ride for hours and no sore spots at all on even a leg that has consistently fluid in it because of a medical a condition know as Lymphedema is a pretty good test.
