I bought this saddle several years ago for my son and riding students. It has performed very well on various horses and ponies, nice quality, easy care. I use string girths and Grooma Airider Pressure Relief Pads for no-slip horses' comfort and rider security.

It fit my narrow, high withered appaloosa great. He loved it and moved significantly better in it.
$200 is a great price!
I hated it. It was too slick, the 17 1/2 did not fit like 17 1/2, and did I mention it was SLICK!? I couldn't get any grip with this saddle! I went and bought a Wintec instead.
If you want synthetic, don't waste your money on this saddle. Save up and get a Wintec.

I purchased this saddle to introduce me and my horse to english riding after taking western lessons for years. This saddle has improved my balance and riding ability 100%!! It put my leg in a perfect position and it fit the back of my high withered Quarter Horse. My only complaint is that it is a weird width that doesn't fit my other QH. It is way too narrow for him. I do love the quality though, I've been trail riding, jumping, showing, and training in this saddle for 3 years an there is only a little bit if wear on the flap. The only thing I had to replace was the leathers, I recently just replaced them after 3 years because they were starting to split at the buckle. For a show all I have to do is wipe it down with a damp sponge and it looks brand new! Just recently, after cleaning this saddle, I was asked if I got a new saddle!

I bought this saddle to exercise my 1/4 horse when we arent on the trails, it fits him ok not very wide. The pomel is high and made my private area sore. I am not a regular English rider tho. People that see me in it say my feet look like they are pushed forward, I do find it hard to keep my heels under me. The girth has no elastic on it and is very hard to adjust I recomend purchasing an extra one. Otherwise for a throw around saddle its fine for what you pay.

This saddle did not fit any of my QH right I rode in it a few times and the saddle slipped evey time I would get on. Its like the middle would stretch out once i was up there and would have to have somebody tighten the girth. This saddle looks good and is water prof thats the only good thing about it! Also don't ride in jeans, you defiantly need riding pants or chaps. I guess this saddle would fit a skinny TB. Not recommended for Quarter Horses.

This saddle fit myself and my horse perfectly! It was very confertable, and put me in the right position, it was very easy to get into 2 point when jumping. Very nice saddle.

I bought this saddle as a schooling saddle for my thoroughbred mare. The deep seat is great, as a very young OTTB mare my horse can throw some nasty fits and spooks at just about everything, this saddle keeps my butt in place.
I also love the quality.

I loved this saddle.
The good: well balanced seat, well flocked panels, easy to fit on a high withered horse, comfortable, feels like it locks you in, you're not going anywhere. Easy to clean after wet beach rides. All purpose feel without too much constriction of movement.
The bad: the knee rolls faded a little, it squeaks a lot. Not great for wider AQHA's perhaps.

Although this saddle is as cheap as dirt, the qualtity and craftmanship is dirt. It sets you so far forward and puts your leg in a terrible position which makes it difficult to stop your horse in. I also find it hard to sit the canter in even on a smoother horse.

I own 3 synthetic saddles. I ride 50 mile endurance rides, and LOVE the easy care, light weight. They show wear early, but are easily mended. They fit all of my Aztecas and Thorobreds. I recommend them to all of my students in all disciplines. I do own a gorgeous Passier, Courbette, and County Competitor; I hardly ever use them. The Kincade is so much more comfortable.

this saddle fits my 16.2hh thoroughbred great. it's very comfortable and not cheaply made. everyone that's seen it/ridden in it can't believe it's only $200. the only downfall is the girth, because it doesn't have the elastic.

I bought this saddle new off a friend. It was awful to ride in and it would rub saddle sores on my horse even with a thick pad on......I dont recommend this saddle at all. Spend a little more money and buy something that wont hurt your horse.

My friend bought this saddle last year for the horse show, because she needed it. Our barn only had 1 english saddle and we needed 2. So she bought it, and ever since then, has been using it. I have ridden in it a few times and I love it!! It took a little bit for it to be broken in, but it works perfectly fine for what I do.

This would be a great first saddle or your secondary saddle, which is what I bought it as. It was so easy to clean and care for, just wipe and your done. It did not fit my larger QH gelding, so if your ordering make sure you get the wider option for those bigger horses, but it fit all our other horses great. Great set for the price! I liked the velcro knee rolls you could put wherever you wanted!

You never want to buy synthetic madematerial. I am an expert horseownertrainer and know a lot about horse saddles. Syntheti material is very cheap and lasts about 1 year. Most of the time by then, it will be ripped and torn. Yes, synthetic are easier to clean and there lighter, a leather saddle would be good in the long run. With good tack soap, a saddle cover, and time to take care of it, a leather saddle will last forever.

Overall this saddle was the perfect fit for my 10 yr old TB gelding. The cutaway withers were really nice because it meant I could use a normal pad and not worry about rubbing him. The only problem was that the knee rolls faded a little and got those little pills on them. Im sure if you took good care of it rather than ride at the beach like I did then it would last a long time. The stirrup leathers were a little stiff too. But it was a VERY VERY comfortable saddle and put your leg in a nice position.

This is actually a really nice saddle for the price. It does have a narrow twist and also a narrow gullet, so may not fit really wide horses very well. However, it fits my horse and is comfortable for us both. The seat is nice and balanced. The knee rolls do attract lint, though.

This saddle is great for how cheap it is! The knee rolls make it really comfy, and the stirrups and stirrup straps are very good. For as cheap as this saddle is, it's AMAZING!

I just recently bought my first horse after taking a bit of a hiatus from riding, so I didnt want to spend a lot of money on my first saddle. I just LOVE this saddle! It fits my Arabian great, its extremely comfortable to ride in, and its a really good looking saddle Im still surprised at how many compliments I get on it when Im riding. Id definitely recommend this for someone who doesnt want to dump a lot of money into a first saddle its an awesome saddle for the price the girth, however, did not fit my horse, but the price I paid for the saddle enabled me to be a little picky about the girth.

This is a great saddle for schooling or trail. It is very versatile! Unfortunately it was a little too narrow for my 16hh QH gelding, but it fits my 16.2hh TB great. I love the cut-away withers, it makes it able to fit lots of other horses. I was skeptical to buy a saddle online, but this one is a good buy. The girth isn't very great so I use a different one. I wish it had elastic on one side. It took the leathers a bit to work in, but now its easy to use and change the length of the stirrups. It's very low-upkeep. Easy to clean, have used it in schooling shows too. Quality saddle for the price! Just be careful of the sizing. This isn't just a cheapy fall apart saddle.
