Purchase: purchased used online for $350
Likes: lovely saddle older, very well made, very comfortable, and very accommodating through the shoulder for my wide horse. Its marked a medium but fits like a wide, perhaps a mismarked? Leather is crosby good, stitching has remained sound, over all lovely... love the billeting system too, evens out security, its a very stable saddle. Nice close contact feel, not overly padded, just enough in the right places. I have a rounder thigh and my leg is able to drape naturally and comfortably. My lower back is very relaxed in this saddle too.
Dislikes: Though the stirrup bars appear recessed, it offers a very close contact feel, I find I'm unusually disturbed by the stirrup buckle under my thigh, this is a first for me... I'll be trying a lower profile leather & buckle, but if that doesn't work, I'll need to find some of those unique dressage leathers that offer no buckle under the thigh at all.
Quality: crosby quality, lovely lovely lovely, even for its age.
Summary: Gorgeous saddle, surprisingly fit my hard to fit horse, and he loves it too, moves out more freely than in any other saddle to date. Lovely quality, nicely thought out & designed, made to last. Hoping I can solve the stirrup buckle issue, as that really bothers me... were it not for that, would be a 5 rating.
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
