Rated 5 out of 5 by Gina W Much to my surprise!
I have a 5 yr old in training. I fractured one of my fingers and the on and off of the western tack became to much. My Husband found this saddle and ordered it for me. I didn't expect much but when it arrived and I took it out of the box, all I could say was "Wow, I am impressed!" Great, great value for the price and very light weight and I can handle tacking him up by myself! My only complaint is the nylon straps did pinch my leg alot! I will take Andrea's suggestion on changing out the nylon leathers to real leather. Other than that I love the look, price and comfort it provides. I have never ridden in anything other than a bareback pad or western saddle. Thanks Kimberly :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by akyramoto Love it!!
I got this for my hard to fit donkey, I actually bought it straight from the manufacter & sent in a with tracing for my donk.
It fits her great! It has to be the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden in! very secure, fits me great.
the serge panels are closed cell foam, so it has extra 'built' in padding for your animal.
Love all the places to hook stuff! I've already made a matching breeching and it attached beautifully to this saddle!
Light weight,easy care, looks way better in person!! ( btw, I got black)

Rated 4 out of 5 by cheryl Great buy!
My daughter bought this saddle 2 yrs. ago - compact like a hunt saddle and light too, but the material grips you wonderfully - the high back and the polies keep you tight in your seat. secure on the horse - never slipped in any direction and easy to cinch up. And minimum care! I have leather austrailian endurance saddles and treeless saddles and I think the close contact and gripping of the seat material - lightness is better in this little gem...my favorite of all the saddles we own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrea Schneider Good for the price
Good value for the price. Very light. I love the ease in cinching with the elastic girth but it definitely needs a breast plate if your going to ride up hill. I replaced the nylon leathers with real leather ones, I found the nylon pinched my leg quite a lot. The dee rings screws on the front for the breast plate came loose so I had to glue them. This is the worst feature on this saddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Holly S R Nice saddle for the price
I have the brown saddle; it is a dark brown, not peanut colored, more like a brazil nut. Very comfortable and strong brass fittings screwed in, lightweight, gold top stitching. Won't last 100 years but will do the job well enough. Try it, you'll like it!
