Category: All Purpose Saddles


Likes: It does what it says on the tin - it fits her well, is cheap, hardwearing and she likes it. A good leather saddle would of course be superior (except when its raining) but then it would cost 2 or 3 x as much. The 4th balancing girth strap is great for the barrel cob shaped pony. It's very light! Great for a youngster who isn't used to a saddle.

Dislikes: The synthetic girth straps - they are very stiff and tough to tighten and I hate them! I may even get them replaced with leather ones...Its a good job this youngster doesn't mind being tugged around and chopped in half!

Quality: Basic but good. removable knee blocks, grippy suede like seat.

Summary: I think the saddle is good value for the money, fits ponies which otherwise are hard to fit and is ideal as an interim solution for a youngster changing shape. I don't expect a cheap synthetic saddle to hold much value so am not worried about that.
