Why did you choose this?
does this fit almost every horse?
Best Answer: Saddle comes with a regular tree to fit most Quarter horses.
I'm trying to find a basic all purpose english riding set for my quarter horse. This is a great price but does not have the best reviews. I'm not looking for anything fancy, I just want something that will do the job I need it to (which is to fit my horse and be pretty durable). A lot of the reviews say that this is not durable, but that might be coming from the people whose saddles did fall apart and the people whose saddles have lasted probably haven't said anything. Would it be better for me to spend less money but risk it not working than to spend more money on the individual pieces and have a lower risk of having to return something?
Best Answer: That is a decision only you can make. It would all depend what amount of money you were looking to spend.
can i return it if it does not fit?
does this saddle come with irons and leathers???
is it a really good starter kit?
Best Answer: Yes! Perfect for the price
does the stirrup come with a rubber band?
Best Answer: Accessories styles and sizes may vary. You may wish to hold off until you see what type of stirrup is shipped with your package. If you want a stirrup with a rubber band, that is called a Peacock Stirrup, and we have several kinds (see below).
Many people find them valuable for children and/or beginners. The stirrups are used with the band assembly on the outside, so they will pop off in the event of a fall and help release the foot from the stirrup.
Does this set come with a pad?
Best Answer: Yes, the pad is not very thick, though. Also, The description of the set says it comes with a 5" bit. I didn't receive a bit and
horse.com has not answered my email requesting that piece be forwarded.
what color is the saddle pad?
Best Answer: I have the black leather so the pad is white, I assume its the same pad for all,This is a wonderful saddle and bridle set, I recommend it for all my students, for training and hobbyists. Perfect price, great quality, really gets the job done.
i want a truthfull answer is this saddle a good buy? i understand you get what you pay for but i really want to get this saddle but its reveiws are a little iffy please tell the truth its my first saddle so my first time looking thanks alot:)
Best Answer: We ride mainly western saddles but my 13 year old wanted to try an English saddle so when I found this for such a great price I ordered her one. It is not a high quality saddle but has actually held up better than I thought it would. She enjoys it, The only thing we used out of the package was the actual saddle everything else is pretty cheaply made. If you are just wanting something to play around in I think this would be fine but if it will be used for everyday riding or eventing I would recommend you buy a better made one.

Hi, I have a few questions.
1. How durable is the saddle, and how long has it lasted you? 2. How good id the girth? 3. What all does it come with? 4. I ride Western, can you give me a chart of sizes Western vs. English?
Best Answer: This is a very nice starter saddle. It is a durable saddle and should hold up well to normal use. This package comes with the saddle, leathers, irons, flat cotton girth and bridle.
