Great saddle!
I love this saddle! It looks much better than the picture. It has a dark brown suede seat instead of the orange. I prefer aluminum barrel stirrups so I ordered a pair when I bought the saddle. No one can believe how little I paid to get such a great saddle. Very comfortable! I've ridden in several others brands and models, but this one is my favorite. My horse in training loves it too. He's one of the lazy ones, but is more willing to work in this one than others that I've tried.

Love It!
I absolutely love this saddle! It is so comfortable and light. Fits my stocky Quarter Horse gelding who is hard to fit saddles to. When I got it, it was a very light oil with a orange seat... I darkened the seat to a dark brown and darkened the leather. Very nice with an easy horn to grab onto. The horn isn't rough like some horns. Easy to break in and doesn't give very bad saddle burns the first few weeks of riding in it.

Love this saddle!!
I have owned this saddle for about 13 years now and I wouldn't trade it. I have a friend looking for a saddle for herself and I she tried mine out. I told where to find this one.

So great I bought it twice.
I bought this saddle about 15 years ago and sold my barrel horse and the saddle went with him. When I went back to trail riding I missed my favorite saddle so I bought a new one 3 years ago. It is just as good as the old one. I love it.

Best Saddle I've Ever Owned
Been riding for over 35 years; mostly western/dressage. I've owned an American Saddle in the past and liked it, so I thought I would try another. Have ridden in several saddles including Passier, Stubben, Circle Y, Wintec, Crosby, etc. Now that I'm older, needed a good saddle for my young horse. Well-balanced and deep seat. The pommels are great for the trail. Fits almost any horse and is tough. This saddle does it all for me and is affordable.
