How does the interchangeable gullet system work? Is there a specific gullet bar set to buy? Or will the ones made for the Wintec and Bates saddles work?
Kelsey B on Oct 31, 2013
Best Answer: I asked this question over a year ago... and by the way this saddle DOES have an interchangeable gullet system, but it is HDR specific.

Does it have knee blocks?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2016
Best Answer: I just purchased this saddle. No it doesn't have knee blocks but it sets your position so perfectly and to be honest you don't even need them with this saddle. I absolutely love it.

What color is this saddle really? I've seen some pictures around the internet and it looks almost black!
A shopper on Aug 13, 2015
Best Answer: I bought this saddle and so did someone else at my barn and they are both a darkish walnut brown, not black at all. You can definitely tell is a brown saddle though. Hope it helps.

How should you know if this type of saddle seat is big enough for the rider? Measured by one hand behind the riders seat?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, when the rider is mounted and the stirrups are adjusted, they should be able to fit at least their four fingers behind them on the seat. This is to help insure you are sitting in the deepest part of the saddle seat. If the saddle is too small for you, your seat will be up on the cantle slope and you will always feel pitched forward off balance.

are the billets leather or nylon?
Erin L on Jun 19, 2015
Best Answer: The billets are leather but there's a nylon piece at the point of attachment to the saddle that's nylons for the second & third billets. The first one is attached directly to the saddle with leather. These are all very sturdy & well made. I've used this saddle for over a year & everything is holding up great so far. Hope this helps.

My question in regard to this saddle is :The Beval Memor X Is it made of a synthetic material or leather with memory foam in the seat and underneath and flocked with memory foam? I currently have a Shires Optimus Close contact saddle with a medium tree that is made of memory foam and is a synthetic saddle . It is super comfortable and looks like leather I love the Shires saddle but because it is a UK saddle it is hard to order.. I have a very difficult to fit Saddlebred who has a roach in the middle of his back. I am wondering if this saddle is comparable to the Shires Optimus close contact . Thank you in regard to this matter. Sincerely, Kelly A.
A shopper on Mar 20, 2015
Best Answer: This saddle is made of French leather, and our Supplier advises us both the seat and the panels are memory foam.

Where do we show what flap length we need? also this saddle does not show that it has an interchangeable gullet system does it?
A shopper on Jan 22, 2015
Best Answer: This saddle does not have an interchangeable gullet system. The flap for the 18W is 15 1/2", which should fit most average height riders.

Wy did I not get my free saddle pad with this saddle as it states I would?
Michelle M on Sep 19, 2013
Best Answer: I didn't get one either but it does say "While supplies last" so my guess is they ran out.

What type of stirrup leathers would match this saddle best? All australian nut leathers are over $60!
nat d on Sep 2, 2013
Best Answer: This saddle is much darker than the photo so go with the darkest brown leathers you can find for a good color match. I bought the HDR hazelnut leathers and they look ridiculous with this saddle - way too light. I think the HDR oakbark might work but the photo looks like they're more reddish. The silverfox schooling leathers come in a brown and the photo looks like they would work but I don't have them so I can't say for sure. They are very inexpensive so it might be worth a shot. It seems like all of the darker leathers are more expensive but anything you can find in the dark brown or chocolate shades will work great with this saddle.
