Needed a lot of breaking in. As for comfort it was not. I got bruised shin even with my boots on. Even when I tried to per turn the stirrups it always went back to its normal store bought state. So I had a difficult time getting my foot in the stirrups. I had to reach down and Manuel get my foot in. Well I sold it and glad to be rid of it. I prefer Circle Y, I think I'll stick with that. You get what you pay for.

I do believe this is the same saddle I purchased just about 7 years ago and it is still in good condition and I ride in it all the time, it is also the lightest one at my house which helps when I take up a tall horse. If you are looking to buy a Barrel saddle this might just be the way to go. And if and when I get another horse or pony I am planning on purchasing another one of these saddles because it fits ponys as well.

I bought this saddle 2 years ago and it was the best buy Ive ever made with a saddle. I rode it the day I bought it and it was already broken in. It fits every horse I own even my older horse with high withers and a sway back. It is comfy to ride even on a 5 hour trail ride. I only ride this saddle out of all my other saddles. This was the best saddle purchase I ever made :)!!!!!

I bought this saddle in a 14 for my daughter and was so impressed I'm going to buy one for myself. For the price, you can't beat it!

Wow....I was very impressed with the quality for the price. It arrived yesterday much quicker than I expected. Very sharp looking and although I haven't gone for a ride in it yet it seems to fit my horse nicely. Also highly impressed that's in made right here in the USA....would love to see more products made here. I received several compliments from friends at the barn and all were impressed with the price. A great buy!

I bought this saddle last year just before the barrel racing season, and right out of the box it was so comfortable and didn't need to be broken in. This saddle is also light weight, and for me that is a huge advantage. I weigh 96 pounds and traditional western saddles are not a great option for me since they tend to be heavy.
1. The seat was not dark as the picture here shows. Since there are no color choices I thought it would be exactally as pictured. That doesn't effect the ride though.
2. The fenders and jockeys are a smoother rough out, and not as sticky as I usually like. It really doesn't give maximum grip for your thighs, but many rough out saddles have this smoother rough out, so I guess some people prefer it.

I was weary of buying this saddle because of it's low price tag, but couldn't be happier! It is super comfy- i ride 6 days a week and often on three hour trail rides and it is perfect! It broke in within a week and fits me and my horse perfectly now, and the suede makes you "stick". I have the rust colored 16 seat and it's amazing.
