The gel seat is still fabulous after 10+ years of hard use. Awesome on all my arabs!

I have a very hard to fit QH/Arab and this saddle has been a Godsend for us. The adjustable gullet makes it work for a wide variety of horses. The endurance style allows for greater dispersion of rider weight than other English saddles = happy horse. We went through 13 saddles before finding this saddle and a fit that works for us. Super light and easy to clean. Has lots of D-rings behind seat to attach your goods to. I bought two sets of saddle strings and attached a set behind and a set up front. Has a crupper ring. Also breast collar and two extra D-rings on front. Can's say enough great things about it.

I ride a 17.5, so the size is fine for me. My horses (3) were used to western saddles. It took a few tries for them to get used to it, but then they loved it - the balance, the CAIR panels. We tried it on our green-broke horse, and my wife exclaimed, "Look how calm she is!" All we use is a single cloth layer pad. I've owned mine for a year...no appreciable wear. However, it seems a bit high priced. If you are certain you like English, then consider paying a bit more for a Bates.

I have had this saddle for many years now and ridden through all sorts of weather. My horse loved it from day 1 and its wonderfully comfortable for the rider as well! Sadly it doesnt appear that the tree will fit my arab otherwise she would inherit it as well.

I have had one of these saddles for many years I love the length of it and the fact it seems to fit several of my horses equally well. My biggest TWH has very strange withers and a long back and was always hard to fit. This is perfect on him it spreads the weight over a wide area. As soon as I started riding him with it he started improving.
It is also a very comfortable saddle to ride and of course I love the fact it is so light and easy to care for.

This saddle fits my National Show Horse great. He has high withers & a raised backbone in the rear. I find the comfort good & weight & balance perfect for endurance. My husband would like to see an option for a longer seat & a pommel that doesnt rise so sharplyhigh for men.
