Rated 4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Great Mid-Level Saddle The leather is of quality and is supple after oiling, and is one of the comfiest saddles I've ridden in. The fit is fantastic, but fits a little wide, so prepare for that. I have it on a very high withered, sway backed 16.2HH Thoroughbred gelding. I bought a medium tree and need to use two thicker pads or it's too wide. This saddle's also more Red than expected. If you're buying this saddle, invest in a saddle cover and only ride in breeches, as jeans tend to rub the stitching above the pommel. Over all, this is a great mid-level or schooling saddle. If you're looking for a quality saddle for schooling, mid level shows, training or pleasure jumping at an affordable price, this is a great purchase. The saddle arrived with a slight knick in the seat, but it ships directly from the manufacturer, so it is of no complaint to Stateline. May 14, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Ideal My parents bought me this saddle 7 years ago. I've ridden in it for a long time and it is still slick. Its good if you are a beginner (aside from the fact that you are going to slide off a lot easier than any other saddle known to man) but the cantle is a lot higher than in this picture. It has caused me plenty of problems in my position that I was unaware of until I switched to a more balanced saddle. I don't recommend it, personally. April 5, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by okay I have to say I was not impressed with this. It is comfortable and fits ok but I doubt it is even real leather, its really cheap and stiff. And once I put the stirrups on they started rubbing and the rub spots started to turn WHITE. And I could not get them to go away, thankfully they were hidden under my leg. I say dont but this unless your willing to buy a new one in a couple years. January 30, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saddle for the price. I bought this aprox 3 years ago. Still comfortable to this day. The only gripe I would have about it is the coating on the leather. After 3 years of cleaning I am only now able to get any oil into it and now it is darkening allot. Dosent affect it in any way but would be nice to oil all of it and not just the areas where the coatuing has wore off. All it all you get what you pay for and if you are looking for perfect pay a little more but if your looking for a decent/good all round *beater* saddle this one is great January 2, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not the best. I bought this saddle hmm, about a year ago.. & i absolutly hate it. It fits me horribly. It places my legs infront of me.. & its shaped so funny. I have to hike the saddle so far up.. just to put the girth on. Its set so far back. and i have to try to sit forward because it places you back. DONT BUY IT. October 23, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Okay for first saddle I got this saddle as my first saddle when I was on lesson horses all the time and wanted something I could sit in a little more regularly (as in, didn't have to get used to a new saddle every week!). It did okay for that, but when I got my horse it fit him okay, but he refused to round under it. I've also found the higher I jump, the more it throws me forward. I would say this is okay for beginner saddle but definitely not good for someone looking to move up. It also took forever to break in and it's kind of slippery. The leather however has held up over the last five years. October 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I have ridden in this saddle at my barn for over 4 years. I just bought one, I love!! I would recommend this saddle to ANYONE! It doesn't matter your experience level, GREAT saddle! Worth the price too! BUY THIS SADDLE! July 18, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst saddle I bought this saddle for my spotted draft mare (15.1 hands) and it fits her horribly. That and the leather feels and looks synthetic and is extremely uncomfortable when you ride in it for any length of time. I also discovered that this saddle encourages a chair-like position. I would not recommend this saddle to anyone. May 10, 2011

Would you say the real color is true to the picture? If it isn't what do you think the color looks like? And would this saddle fit a pretty standard sized Arab?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2015
Best Answer: The wide tree was really wide. We ended up returning the saddle b/c it was even too wide for our fat quarter Pony and we went with the regular tree. The color is true to the picture.

my daughter rides in a 15 inch western saddle....what size will we need in this English saddle?
BONNEE S on Nov 20, 2015
Best Answer: Comparative English seat sizes run about 2 1/2 to 3 inches larger than Western seat sizes.
For example, A 5'4" woman of average weight usually takes a size 17.
Do you have any English saddles you can try out first? Get a feel whether a 17 or a 17 1/2 is needed?
The saddle is big enough if the mounted rider can fit all 4 fingers behind her seat before going over the edge of the cantle. You do NOT want one too small or the seat will be forced up the back curve instead of the lowest part, which will keep the rider always tipped forward.
