Rated 5 out of 5 by Amz Working out very well!
I bought this as my first English saddle to be honest I didn't expect it to work out so nicely! I've gotten many compliments at my barn. It's light very durable and I've had no issues with the color rubbing off. I ride in it about 3 to 4 times a week and it still looks brand new. I girth I replaced because the one that came with it was cheap! Other then that it's a great buy for a first time saddle!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CircleTack Ok for the Price!
Well as you all know you get what you pay for! These are imported as it states and are made of water buffalo hide, not cow leather. So there is a big difference in that. Even the bridle is made with it. I sell these sets as well, and use one for my older children. We have had a black set for over a year now and really havent had any issues with it! The girth needs to be replaced after riding with it for a while. Its a cotton girth with the same material as the saddle. Our sets also include better stirrups and pad at a cheaper cost. We get people who hate them and some who love them! I wouldnt trust them or sell them if they were garbage! As far as us riding in them, I would say theyre a great beginner set! Or for a younger child to learn how to care for their property before getting an expensive one! Hope this helps!

Rated 2 out of 5 by THOMAS DANCISON Poor quality
This saddle was purchased 4 months ago, used a maximum of 10 times by 2 seven year old children, each weighing 40 pounds and the flap where the stirrups attach ripped off. Supposed to be made out of leather, but actually pressed cardboard. I guess you get what you pay for

Rated 4 out of 5 by cal you get what you pay for, but it's a decent saddle
I got this saddle 7 months ago, used it about every other week (because I ride Western mainly), and it's holding up nicely. Its not a high quality saddle by any stretch of the imagination, but the 16inch fits my stocky 14hh POA gelding and me (I'm 5'4, 110 lbs) and it looks fine. I ride in it, jump him in it, and when I get around to it, I'm probably going to do some local shows with it. I've got nothing to complain about because it's durable. The only thing I found annoying is that the color on the underside of the flap is rubbing off and is now brown underneath the saddle. Not affecting the use of the saddle, just appearance. it needed some oiling and conditioner when it came, but after that, it's a well working saddle. I didn't like the girth it came with so I bought a different one (it's not stretchy at all. It's nylon.). The bridle fits him fine (pony size), but it's not high quality. I bought this set for the saddle mainly and I got what I wanted. You get what you pay for in this set and IMO it works well for the beginner or someone dabbling in English riding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Annie Not strongly recommended
I bought this as my first English saddle. I used it on my 14.1 quater horse and it did not fit him well. After a bit of use, he began taking off in it. Then where my leg rubs on the saddle, the leather turned almost white. It doesn't seem to fit any of my horses and the quality of the leather seems cheap. I wouldn't highly recomend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emily Pretty good.
This saddle is really good but if you plan on showing you might just want to get a bareback pad to ride in more often than this. It is a good saddle but the set colors get rubbed so I ride on my bareback on everything except shows.
