What's the difference between suede and the regular leather seat?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine I have a suede seat, love it. Easier to sit in and ride. If you have to drive your horse it's easier. The leather seats I slid around some and didn't have a really solid seat. Hope this helps

I have a small 14.5 hand 3 year old. Would this saddle be too wide for her?
Stacy M on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It fits my mare that is 15.1 and my trainer rides in one on all of his younger horses. We do use a saddle pad and a saddle blanket with all saddles. It's a very comfortable saddle!

BEST ANSWER: A flex tree saddle has bars that are flexible, allowing the saddle to flex with the horse. The flexibility 'enhances' an already proper fit, it doesn't attempt to create it. Flexible bars work like the arch support of a shoe; they provide the correct fit while the flexibility allows unrestricted movement and bend away from pressure.

An adjustable tree tends to help create a fit so to speak. Most adjustable saddles involve the use of interchangeable gullet plates, sold separately or in complete sets, and saddles that can be added to the saddle. Shaped basically like a "V," a gullet plate is screwed into place to establish the tree width and the angle of the points. Interchangeable gullet plates do not affect the width of the rest of the gullet, and for that reason riders should always be sure the gullet of a saddle is neither too wide nor too narrow for their horse's particular conformation.

If you are unsure of proper fit you are encouraged to consult with a local saddle fitting expert.

The Royal King RB Auto Training Saddle (as listed and shown here) has a suede seat.
all leather?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all leather.
Do you slide more with the leather seat?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: some people may say yes to that, I usually wear half chaps for leg protection so I am pretty solid in either saddle - of course full chaps even better. some leather seat saddles especially English saddles can get mighty slick.
Needed for a horse with high withers, would this be a good choice?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on your horse’s width. This is a full QH bar saddle which means it is best for a horse with a broad back/wide shoulders. My horse is large and broad but also has prominent withers and it fits him well, but I would not recommend this for a narrower horse with high withers. If you have a narrower horse, you would want one of the saddles with a semi-bar.
any pinching anywhere such as withers ect, well fitted on most horses?
Troy R on Jun 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use this on my stout Paint, 16 hands and have had no problems, but I do use a high quality pad. For me, it is a good value for the money. If you ride multiple horses a day I would think you would want to go with a higher end brand.
Will the 15.5in fit a 5 foot tall girl? Will the stirrups go short enough?
Marah C on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am a petite 4'10" and the saddle fits me great...I did have the fenders shortened and the stirrups twisted and wrapped so they would hang correctly.
Is this an equitation seat?
HorseLover on Mar 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a training saddle, with more of a reining-style seat.
How wide is the gullet on the saddle?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: About 7.5

lexi63 on Apr 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Everyone has their own preferences in the way a saddle fits them as well as their horse. If you are unsure we encourage you to consult your local saddle shop or fitting expert to ensure the best fit and comfort possible.
Is the saddle completely roughout?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is.
Do you have a saddle demo program? I wanted to try this saddle before I buy it.
