Decided to buy another one of these saddles. FYI- the skirt is 24" in length. Much better fit for my shorter-backed Arabian than the Arabian tree, which is 2" longer in the skirt.

This saddle is amazingly light so its perfect for endurance racing or trail riding. My horse loves it!
At first leather is brand new so it needs to be worn out a little for the stirrups. Overall very confterbul and PERFECT SADDLE!

I have been riding exclusively, with this saddle for over 4 years and about 4-5 times per week. It is light weight and when cleaned, still looks almost new, showing no wear. I use this saddle for trail and arena work. I like that I can easily post the trot due to its proper position of the stirrup fall. I have a shorter-backed, fuller body Arabian that has had no problems with this saddle. This saddle also fits my friend's Thoroughbred and Rocky Mtn. horses. The saddle rings do jingle when trotting, so I have tied the rings together. I also have changed out the latigo and billet straps to leather, which makes it much more comfortable for the horse. I would buy this saddle again, in a heartbeat.

I bought this saddle 18 months ago. I do not ride endurance, but do a combination of western arena work and trail riding. I wanted a lightweight, low-maintenance saddle without a horn, but with a western seat.
This product has suited me perfectly. I took off one star for quality only because it comes with a nylon tie-strap and off-billet. An exercising horse needs to breathe, and nylon does not flex at all! I switched these out for leather ones before using the saddle. I have read of some instances of this saddle causing soreness, and I believe nylon (or improper fit) is the culprit.
Anyway, I've used the saddle several times a week for many months now. It has yet to show any signs of wear. Some of the tie-rings jingle, but I removed a few (easily done with a screw-driver) and tied the others together with a piece of rope, and now it is silent and comfortable. I particularly love the wide, cushioned stirrups, and the flexibility of the fenders.
My horse also has never shown anything but a favorable opinion of the saddle. He's a 15.2 APHA gelding, and the saddle fits him just right with a generous pad.
