Do not buy this saddle! Even for a cheap saddle the shape of the seat is unacceptable! It is like riding a square box. Little effort was put in to making the seat fit a human body. Takes the joy out of riding when your inner thighs are getting bruised.

I found it to be comfortable for me, that is for the seat part of it. But as for the leather wear it conects to the padded seat....not so much. I have owned this saddle for 3 yrs and it has not gotten any better. it was cheap so that is why i keep it. but i am determined to find a full cover to go over the seat for better comfort for my thighs. My horse loves the saddle!

this saddle was on sale for $279 plus $20 discont so I kept it. Never would have at full price! the seat formed a ridge where the seat curved down that caused brusing and a swollen lunp on me... I put a pad on the saddle to help...we'll see...

I bought this on sale for $259.00. That's the only reason I'm keeping this saddle. It said that the seat is padded and it would be comfortable on long trail rides. It actually was uncomfortable from the start! It has a ridge on the seat where the padded part meets the smooth leather. It caused brusing! I put padding and leather over it to smooth out the ridge. When my brusing goes away I will ride on it and hopefully it will work. I know I shouldn't expect much from a cheap saddle, but I do expect the description to be more accurate... :(

I received my saddle and at first glance it seemed like a quality saddle! I was worried that making sure it would work for me would be difficult to determine without getting it dirty.
I put it on my horse, and it sat quite a bit higher than I thought it would. The gullet seemed ok so I rode in it.
In the description of the saddle said that it was very padded and would be comfortable for long trail rides, which is why I bought it. When riding on it I felt an uncomfortable ridge where the seat curves downward...I'm not sure how to explain it. It caused brusing after only 30 min of riding. I bought this saddle on sale for only $259.00 so I figured I got what I paid for. After making a pad it felt better... Hopefully I will be ok one long trailrides.
