I got this saddle two winters ago, but didn't use it as much as I thought I would. It has been siting, only used once or twice, for a year. I pulled it out to use on a long trail ride the other day . Almost ten miles. It is one of the best saddles I have ever used. It's perfect for anything. I jump in it, race, gallop, relax. Everything. It's perfect and I will be buying it again when I need another. The only thing I have to say is that it was stiff until it formed itself to my horse. Which is to be expected.

I do not know why people say the saddle runs "SO SO SO SMALL" yes it does run small but not enough to fit a mini. I bought this a while ago and it is in perfect conditions, I do suggest getting it a size up because I got a 16R but I had to return it and get a 17R. The quality is great, but I also suggest getting a different girth because it is of low quality. It forms very easily to your seat and mine broke in about three rides after. I would deffinatly buy this saddle again but I am upgrading to an HDR

I purchased this saddle as a schooling and show saddle for my Thoroughbred. When I opened the box, I was very very disappointed. The saddle runs SO SO SO SMALL. I ordered a size 16" Regular tree and it came the size of a baby saddle. I could've put it comfortably on a mini, maybe. The quality was also terrible, the synthetic leather was weak and rubbery and just felt really cheap. Also, the pads underneath look like synthetic leather in the picture, but once the saddle comes they are indeed polyester and WAY too soft and cushy. They would've ripped in 2 seconds. Also, the tree was super narrow, it wouldn't have fit my high withered thoroughbred. THE ONLY THING that I liked that came with this saddle was the girth. It was a good quality neoprene girth with elastic on one end and it surprisingly came in the size my TB needed. The synthetic bridle was flimsy, warped and smelled HORRIBLE. Needless to say, I wasted my money. I am returning this saddle and spending some money on a good quality Marcel Toulouse. Anyone looking to save a few bucks on this, DON'T BOTHER. Spend a little more for a good quality leather saddle that actually lasts.

I got this saddle for my new passifino horse. I got a 17 and I loved it! But after just 4 rides it ripped! I am furious. Now I have to buy another saddle with the money I do not have! I am only 15! But seriously looks nice and it is really nice but it is poor quality!

So I ordered this along with a seperate girth because I read reviews saying the girth was not very well made. I am anxious to see if this saddle lives up to it's standards ! I may have ordered the seat size a little too big though, 17R though I think I should have gone with 16R. Can someone tell me if this saddle runs small? I was afraid it would(given why I got the 17R). I really hope it works out ! I have a 14.3 hand Rose Gray Appendix mare so I thought black would look great on her, This is my first saddle as well. Let's hope for the best !

This saddle is very pretty. It has an expensive saddle look. It is moderately comfortable for horse and rider. Great for someone who is just getting started or someone like me who just likes to ride English to remind themselves of correct posture and work on an independent seat (which is harder to do in Western) My horse seems to like it too. Good quality for the price!

I have had this saddle for almost ten years and it looks almost brand new. It has fit every horse I have ever used it on and it is really comfortable for both me and the horse. I got it because the horse i had at the time had really high withers and it fit her, but I will not ever have another english saddle. I love it! May not be suitable for some shows though but for schooling it is great. I have jumped and done flat work in it.

I love this saddle! The only thing I don't like is the leathers were hard to put on for someone who has put them on before but for my trainer they supper easy to put on. Great everyday saddle that can be put in the show ring also.
