Bought this for my daughter, here"s her review:
My gelding is very hard to fit. This fits him great! High withers, but a wide enough back that he wasn"t pinched anywhere. Not the quality i was expecting, way better! I honestly was expecting a crappy syntheticy material, but was pleasantly surprised to see that it is nice leather. Comfy seat as well, nice matching tack set. Now to the bad part.
If you are short, this is not the saddle for you. The stirrups, while they do adjust nicely buckle wise, do not move up and down. So the fender gets in the way if you need to shorten it for shorter people. I am five nine with long legs and this worked exactly perfect for me, but literally no shorter. Overall though, great quality for the price... in the next week or so i am going to try to get a good picture or a good picture link up of it sitting on my guy so you can see how it sits on him... highly recommend saddleonline.com and you can e-mail me so you know i"m a real person...

I LOVEEEE this product. I have
I LOVEEEE this product. I have been searching long and hard for a short enogh barrel skirt as I ride young horses and the skirts are always too long. After buying numerous saddles of different lengths, bars, etc. this was my perfect find. The saddle is very comfortable and simple, I"ve received a lot of compliments :).
I have a very narrow 3 year old I ride in a thick pad and it just fits her great. When I ride a thicker horse, I just use a thin pad and this saddle still fits wonderfully. I have had saddle fitting problems for so long I"m so happy to finally be successful. It"s a lovely saddle for an affordable price, the breastcollar is nice as well, but I highly suggest a with strap if you barrel race as it hangs relatively low.
The stirrups aren"t metal as pictured, they were wrapped in leather, and the horn is relatively ugly as it is flat on the top, would look better round, but other than that the saddle is absolutely wonderful and I will have it for a long time. Definitely better than all the name brand saddles I"ve tried!!
I will never buy a saddle that isn"t from this site, I"ve bought a couple and I just love them so much. Great quality for the best of price, I continue to direct horse people here every day :)
