Purchase: I got my saddle at Pleasant Ridge, a local tack shop. I had gotten money for Christmas so I decided that after 4 years of riding it was time for me to get a saddle. I had done my research and this regular $1200 saddle was on for $729! And what a deal it was!!
Likes: The leather is of good quality and has good dye, as if is only starting to wear and I have had it for about one and a half years. It is very comfortable and holds my long legs that are hard to fit into certain saddles. I am very long from my hip to my knee and my knee lands right on the rolls. My leg sits almost perfectly! I can do my equitation without the saddle getting in the way, and yet supports my body. When it scratches (very rare) even the worst marks are removed easily with some conditioner! (once I fell off and the heel of my boot scraped across the cantle of the saddle, and I easily removed it with conditioner. I can't find the scratch even though I know where it is!) This saddle is easily fitted to round ponies and high withered thoroughbreds.
Dislikes: Nothing, except some over wearing around the stirrup bars.
Quality: The stuffing in this saddle is even and well placed. The leather is of good quality and dying. The knee rolls are soft and smooth. The leather is grippy and supple. I LOVE this saddle.
Summary: This is a great saddle for its price! Well constructed and very comfortable. I LOVE it! Buy this saddle online at www.pleasantridge.ca You will not regret it! I give it: 5+ Stars!
