This is a great set for the price!
I bought the 15" starter set for my daughter 8 years ago and still looks great after 3 kids and several 4-H meetings. My daughter needed a larger size, so I ordered this one. It looks just as nice! It's is great for her. She uses it for her jumping classes. We have never used the girth that came with the sets, but everything else is great. She just shows in local shows and 4-H. This saddle is perfect for her riding needs! Love this set! And the price is awesome! I would highly recommend this especially for young and beginner riders!

Amazing saddle!!! Amazing price!!!
I have had this saddle for a little over 5 months now and it couldn't be more perfect. When I got this set everything looked show ready and the leather on the saddle and bridle was very soft and supple, couldn't have asked for better quality and for the price!!! I will be buying another one for my friend. Fits perfectly on my horses.

save your money
The tree of the saddle is low quality. The stirups do not secure to the saddle really well, and tend to just pop off while mounting (keep in mind I'm only around 145 lbs.) It is also is low quality leather, and looks cheap. I highly recommend saving your money and getting a better saddle. When I cleaned it for the first time dye from the leather also came off. The bridle is ok though. The girth is also bad.

Nice saddle for the price.
Only downside would be the nylon stirrups, they don't slide very nicely to adjust length. The only other downside would be how short the billets are because it makes it hard to get forth to fit it. Good saddle though otherwise.
May 20, 2016
AWESOME!
As my first English Saddle that I have bought it was an very good purchase. I am looking to do just basic riding with it and it has held up very well, it was very worth it especially for the price. It also fits my horse very well. So if you're looking for a good basic starter saddle this is perfect!! FYI it does come with a saddle pad.

Great Saddle for the low price
I just got my saddle and wanted to try a new English saddle without paying a lot. Love this saddle. Light weight, good quality. Love the fit.
December 14, 2015
This product was a very big disapointment
The bridle (whole set) was the best part of this purchase, i have not had any problems with it.Now on the other hand the saddle was a huge let down, It has been ridden in 3-4 times, the last use the pony and rider were sweating. By the end of the ride the whole under side and seat of the saddle have turned white from the paint coming off.I do not recommend this saddle to anyone unless it is for very light use and certainly not for showing.
May 20, 2015
Very good indeed!
It's very confortable and looks really good although you can tell the quality it's not the best but it's a great chair for starters.
March 18, 2015
great beginning saddle
This is an awesome saddle. I ordered it hoping it would fit my 15.2 hand quarter horse and it does... perfectly. I wasn't a big fan of the pad so I ordered a different one. Overall the saddle is a very nice quality and the bridle looks amazing. When I opened the package the bridle felt like it already had been oiled. It is a very good saddle for the price I would recommend this saddle to anyone wanting to learn english riding. The girth was a bit small but the more I used it the better it fit.
July 20, 2014
I tried using this product on two different horses.A thourobred that is very wide and a QH that is very narrow. The saddle does not fit my thourobred but it fits my QH very well. Also, I was told to order an English saddle 2' bigger than your western saddle size. I ride 14' western so I ordered a 16' it was too small!

I've decided to try out English, and I don't want to pay a whole lot for all the tack, so this seemed good for a starter.

does this fit almost every horse?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2014
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?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2015
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?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2014

staci g on Mar 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yes
is it a really good starter kit?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes! Perfect for the price
does the stirrup come with a rubber band?
A shopper on Jan 25, 2016
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.

Witch size fits a clydesdale?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This saddle has a tree sized to fit most Quarter Horses - it will be far too narrow for a Clydesdale draft horse.
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?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2016
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. It doesn't not come with the bit. You will add 2" to the seat size of your western saddle to get the correct seat size in English.
Does this set come with a pad?
Matt N Jill D on Dec 3, 2014
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?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2015
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:)
brenna on May 8, 2015
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.
How do you know the seat size accurately? Where or what do you measure for rider's seat size?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Here's another option: Sit in a position so that your upper leg is at a right-angle to your lower leg, then measure your upper leg length ...from the back of your buttock to the tip of your knee.
Use this chart to determine your approximate English seat size:

Upper Leg Length Seat Size
Up to 16 1/2" 15" seat
Up to 18 1/2" 16" seat
Up to 20" 16 1/2" seat
Up to 21 1/2" 17" seat
Up to 23" 17 1/2" seat

Will it work for a older adult??
harry1999 on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is definitely a beginner saddle. If you decide to continue riding, you will probably want to invest in a better saddle eventually. Also, make sure that you measure properly for the size saddle you need. If you order the proper size, it should be fine for an adult.
