Manufacturer: Steve Edwards
Model: Lite Trail Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: This is an update to an earlier review. I bought this saddle in 2/2008 from Steve.
Likes: not much
Dislikes: I wasn't sure about it until riding in it for several months. I ride my foxtrotter about 100 miles a month in all type of terrain, predominately rocky mountainous terrain. I'm 5'4" and this saddle is too wide for me. It's the most painful saddle I've ever ridden in. I started to examine it closely, looking under the seat jockey and found it's not aligned the same on the right side versus the left. On the right side, which is the most painful, there is a screw head, which on the left side of the saddle is covered by cordura. This screwheadis positioned right below my butt bone which aches all the time now. The saddle doesn't fit my foxtrotter. She's cinchy now and the saddles bridges in the middle and rubs at the cantle. So back to saddle research.
Quality: The material is what I expected for the price, no complaints there. The workmanship is very sloppy.
Summary: I don't recommend this saddle
Usefulness Rating: 2.85714 out of 5.
