Purchase: I got it from a reasonably priced tack shop as a first saddle for a new first time horse owner, it came in a package and totalled near, $1000, as a minor i found this quite reasonable, little did i know... the colours didn't match on any piece of the set, it took over 6 months to finally get the set, and it really wasnt worth it.

Likes: The saddle is very nice and comfy from the rider's point of view but...

Dislikes: The colour is terrible, the nee area of your leg will be red-ish for years because the colour rubs right off, the way the saddle is designed it holds your leg at an ok position but pushes your bum back, making your balance awkward and over fences your leg gets all weird looking, and it's not the riders fault, trust me it's the saddle.

Quality: It looks very nice when first bought, nice colour, nice shape... but the colour of the flap rubs off onto your pants, the leather is ok, comfy but slippery, the shape is terrible for your equitation, it puts you in very awkward places.

Summary: It's fine for beginners, it won't mess up your equitation permanently, it's comfy, the colouring is terrible, the shape is terrible, it's just not a great saddle... at all
