Model: South Pass GEN II
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I originally had a Tucker Trooper saddle that was comfortable but it lacked the contact and security I wanted. Looked into several other Tucker saddles but I found I could not find a comfortable seat. Most seemed to have a narrow twist that made it extremely uncomfortable for male riders. The South Pass has a wide twist. I paid around $1700. I placed an order and it took approximately one month for delivery.
Likes: Wow is this thing comfortable! The wide twist makes it work well for me and even my wife likes to ride in it. The seat is not so soft as to make it feel like there is no contact with the horse. I have a Tenn. Walker and it leaves plenty of room for him to do his thing even in the medium bars.
Dislikes: Only dislike it the giant, shiny, metal display on rear of cantle letting the world know its a GEN II. A little overboard for my taste.
Quality: I have not found anything in the construction that stands out. My guess is this saddle will last for years
Summary: No regrets. I am tough to please and I would definitely purchase again.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
