Manufacturer: Parelli Collection Saddles
Model: Fluidity English Saddle - Superwide
Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: These saddles are purchased from the USA and shipped all over the world. I am in Australia. If you are a member of the Savvy Club then there is a hefty discount. I paid $2995 with everything I bought.
Likes: This saddle is on of the only ones I have ridden in and felt comfortable in. I have very wide chested horses and standard saddles don't come wide enough. The only one that came close was a Barnsby or County but they didn't have the comfort in the twist that the Parelli Fluidity saddle has. The craftsmanship is excellent, there is ample ranges of size to suit horse and rider and there is a good amount of information regarding how to measure your horse to get the right fit. It suits my purpose as it's a cross between an all purpose and dressage saddle meaning for me I can compete or ride out and feel equally comfortable.
Dislikes: There is nothing really that I can say here honestly. Maybe only that it has to come from the States but it takes 5 days to get here and so that's fine by me.
Quality: Leather is robust, well tanned and well stitched. It is soft and pliable with long girth billets for extra comfort for the horse. After all they are the one wearing it!
Summary: I love this saddle. If you have a wide horse and you are a smaller rider then it will make you feel less stretched. Won't pinch your horse and will allow them to move their shoulder freely, become more uphill in their posture and move like they do unridden.
Usefulness Rating: 2.25 out of 5.
