Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: i purchased this saddle on ebay for $275 (with shipping). i was looking for a cheap saddle that would fit my horse, while he's still filling out.
Likes: this saddle is very nicely balanced, and it was easy to keep the correct seat while riding.
Dislikes: the gullets were rubber, and had stretched a good bit, while riding. also, after a total of 2 hours of use, the buckles for the girth were able to dig into the flap, causing a pretty good dig.
Quality: the construction seemed to be fairly good. the sturdiness of this saddle left little to be desired.
Summary: you do get what you pay for. if i hadn't been looking for a "disposable" saddle, then i would never had looked twice at this saddle. i am pleasantly surprised, however, that this saddle is perfectly balanced.
