Purchase: I sell these saddles!! I have never had a complaint about them, they fit well, the silver is comparable to most new mid-line saddles. Contrary to other reviews the silver is all of 'one' kind. The saddles are in the show rings and getting a lot of oohs and ahhs!! For a mid-line saddle, especially made for those who cannot afford a Kathy's or similar, it is showing well without the big dent in the pocketbook. Great for beginners and 4-H kids!! Anyone who has actually purchased a Showman knows that they do have a 5 year warranty. Also each saddle is serial numbered The saddles range from $805. for the 14.5 to $845. for the 18" can't beat that :) Have fun and happy showing !! tackladyonline
Likes: Affordability, looks, made in the USA, warranty, fit, and how it looks in the show ring. Adjustable for youths , 5 seat sizes. For the price it is a great Equitation saddle, well cared for it will hold it's value. Fast drop shipping from the manufacturer. Is a close contact saddle, like the other expensive brands.
Dislikes: Not a thing :)
Quality: Constructed very well, with USA bullhide leather, bullhide covered hardwood trees, handmade and hand tooled. 7" close contact style fits most showing QH. and another breeds that take a full QH bar of 7"
Summary: Your in the show ring and you blend nicely with all the high dollar saddles, who knew you didn't drop a bundle on it!!! Great for those who are on a budget, pay less but look good doing it. Just an honest tack shop point of view, 11 years in the business and would never sell a saddle I did not like.
