Our trainer suggested this as a starter saddle. Another girl at the stables had one and we tried it out. My daughter liked it and is really excited about getting her own.
Barbara S on Nov 25, 2017
It looks like a nice low cost saddle, the free shipping made the choice easier.
Veronica B on Oct 3, 2017
good reviews and have heard good things about the brand
Rachel D on Apr 14, 2016
Not cheap but not expensive, great reviews, LOVE the shape and color, and looks very comfy!
Meesha21 on Oct 29, 2015
Love this saddle even though it doesn't look like the picture. Really comfy ride and puts me in great position on flat or jumping.

What is the weight of this saddle?
Christine L on Sep 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Approx. 15-20 lbs.
Does it come with a saddle cover? If so what kind of cover (Cotten, water proof, color,etc)?
Makena G on Aug 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the saddle did come with a cover, but unfortunately, this saddle as beautiful as it was, did not fit my horse, so I sent it back...I honestly don't remember what material the cover was, but it was a beautiful saddle with a cover!Enter
Does this saddle have a curved tree?
Pam S on Jul 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The tree is definitely curved. I have a freakishly flat backed horse and it was like a see—saw on him. It fit my daughter beautifully and was very comfortable though!
How wide is the extra wide tree?
Emily H on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure. I got the medium tree and it fits very accurate. So I’m assuming the wide would be accurate as well. But it’s a very good saddle.
does is come with stirrups and stirrup straps?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No stirrups or leathers came with mine. It is an easy color to match though.
How wide is the XW tree?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We got the W tree and it was almost too big. We had to get a lift pad. Her horse is an Arabian and doesn't have much in the withers. We got the R and it was too small. It has held up well The billet straps still look new. She oils it regularly and it seems a bit lighter in color. Hope this helps.
I am 5'2. Would the flap on the 17.5 be to long?
E.king on Jan 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: no my granddaughter is short... the only problem I have with the saddle are the very short billet straps but the saddle is really nice for the money. I would prefer the straps to have been lower under her legs. I need to find a better girth .
What shape is the cantle ?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: HDR advises us that the cantle is rounded.
Is this in USD?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yesEnter
I have a 15.1 stocky quarter mare & I'm new to riding english. In a western saddle she needs a fqhb at least 7" gullet. Would I need a regular or wide tree?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I love this saddle! And the answer to your question is probably a wide tree. I use this on a 15.1 h narrow Morgan horse, and a 16.2 narrow body Thoroughbred. I would not find it wide enough for my 14.3 Quarter horse.
I have a welsh cob with really low withers, would a wide or a regular fit him?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Likely a wide. I purchased the regular and it didn't fit my low withered QH very well.
Is the size for the horse or rider?
Faith on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The numbers/seat size in inches are for the rider. The R or W is regular or wide tree for the horse.
Is the foam paneling soft or hard?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I find it soft, but firm. It’s really a great saddle for the $$$.
What does the W mean in size?
A shopper on Nov 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe it means Wide tree (the R would be for Regular)
I'm considering this saddle for my high-withered level-backed 16h gelding. Would this saddle fit my horse without rocking or sitting on his withers? What's the measurement for each tree size and where is the measurement taken? How wide is the gullet along the spine? Are the flaps forward enough to accommodate 6' rider's leg with the 19" seat size? How large is the knee roll?
Liz E on Sep 30, 2017
Would this work as a hunt seat saddle?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes, absolutely. I have been using this saddle and showing in it for the past 2 years. It's very comfortable and perfect for lower level hunter classes. It has a slightly deeper seat and straighter flap than you would want to use for competition at a higher level in my opinion, but it will fit each rider differently.
How wide is the channel on this saddle?
Leah C on Jul 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have not measured it but it fits my 16.3 hand QH and also my 1/2 Arab/Hackney (16.1)
This saddle is very comfortable and fits my horses very well.
With a high withered draft/tb cross would I be better with a regular or wide tree? I was thinking regular but I've never had much luck getting a saddle to for him right in 21 years. I even have the interchangeable gullet systems on both my dressage and close contact saddles.
Suzanne H on Mar 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would go with a regular tree. The last thing you want on a high withered horses is the saddle sitting on his withers, and I think that will be the case with the wide tree. I know the struggle all to well, I have tb who has high withers. I think the regular tree should fit well
I loved my Crosby Pris de Nations, but it's way too small for me now. If anyone else has ridden in a crosby prix de nations, Does this saddle have a similar fit and feel? I noticed in the comments it does not have knee rolls. I currently have a collegiate and it has the knee rolls and I hate them.
Suzanne H on Mar 9, 2017
How does this saddle in a medium tree tend to fit Thoroughbreds with decent withers? Thank you.
A shopper on Dec 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I was worried about this too! My mare is an Ottb, but she's decently filled out, I went with a wide tree and it fits her nicely, it is almost a little tight on her shoulder but I got lucky and it works
Do these saddles come in black?
Leah C on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not that I've seen, Only the Australian nut, But I find it to be a beautiful color.
Are the panels on this saddle straight or banana shaped? I need a jumping saddle for a new horse with a back that is straight and flat as a board. I'm in a rural area with no tack shops so unfortunately I can't go try or look at saddles
Holly T on Oct 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Please contact our customer service department and we would be more than happy to assist you!
how long does it take for saddles to ship?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In-stock sizes typically ship within 1-2 business days.
Would this saddle work for normal hunt/English shows? Not just jumping? And do you think a 17 would fit me 5'7 and fifteen around average sized, cause any larger is sold out
Liz2677 on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I think the saddle would work for huntseat/English shows. As for size, I am 5'8" and using an 18, so a 17 may fit you. It's worth a try. The nice thing about Stateline is they offer a flexible, generous test ride and return policy for saddles.

Good luck! Saddle fitting can be really difficult.
Is there an exchangeable gullet or not? Every answer says something different
Hannah on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No this does not have an exchangeable gullet
I am a lesson student. I am thinking of investing in this saddle. Should I buy a wide gullet to fit his draft cross back with a half pad? Or a just a regular gullet? Leasing or buying is in my soon future, thanks
Hannah on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
I bought the regular for the quarter horses I ride and it's wide on some of them even, so I would say, the regular is pretty wide, but I guess it'll depend on how wide your draft cross is. Hope this helps!
Does this saddle have an interchangeable gullet?
A shopper on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, the gullet is not interchangeable.
Is this saddle synthetic ?
A shopper on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it is a all leather saddle
So I read all the previous questions posted about this saddle and came out more confused... Some of the answers say yes this saddle has an interchangeable gullet system, some say no it does not. The details about this saddle mention nothing about being interchangeable. So if I was to purchase this saddle today would it be interchangeable or not?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This item comes equipped with Adjust-To-Fit interchangeable gullet system however, we do not sell the settings for the system they must be purchased elsewhere.
Does it come with a cover?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: HDR advises us that yes it does come with a cover.
