I bought this for a new horse with a flat back and it DID not fit her well. The bars had alot of rock. The cinch strap was also very short. Very comfortable seat though. Keeps you balanced.
Not Medium Oil Finish..

When I ordered the saddle it said it was medium oil and when it arrived it was dark oil.. besides the color not being what I thought it would be, the saddle is very nice and the seat sits up high and the saddle overall is just very comfortable.
Love it!

I purchased this saddle a few weeks ago and as soon as I sat in it I fell in love! It really helped with my posture, and compared to the old trail saddle I've been using for the past few months while getting back into riding after a few years, it really helped me feel deep and secure in the seat. It fits my TB/paint perfectly, even with his muscular paint shoulders and tiny uphill hind end! Great quality and great price I recommend this saddle to everyone

As soon as I sat in this saddle I knew it would be perfect!!! It fits every single horse of mine, high withers, and low withers. It is sooo comfy and really nice quality. I could sit in it all day. It really allows you to sit deep and push out of the turns. If you are looking for a nice quality saddle to fit all of your horses this is it!

I am very interested in this saddle because I am on a very tight money crunch but I was wondering if this would fit a large appaloosa pony. He is around 14 hands high.

What size bars does this saddle have?

I love this saddle! I was so pleased to find that not only did it fit my QH mare perfectly but it was the best saddle fit I have had for myself. I would definitely buy another one.

I couldn't say enough about this saddle. I rode in it for a couple of years, and had to sell it when I sold my horse. Now that I am getting back into horses, this is the only saddle I want. Great comfort! I agree, it fits somewhat stockier, or wider horses better, but mine always are. This saddle wears nicely, and holds up well. Never had to replace a thing.
Cortney from ON wrote (April 13, 2010):
This saddle fits the wider/short back style quarter horses very well. I had been through a few saddles before I found this one, my mare loves it. I don't find it is all that comfortable but it definatley fits the horse well, and balances the rider decient, which are my biggest concerns. It is a great buy for the rider who can't afford the higher end saddles but still wants a good fit and balanced seat!

It is a really nice starter saddle. I use it for trail riding and team penning. It is really comfortable for riding all day. I use it 4 days a week for 1 year now. I highly recommend it for someone who can't afford the higher priced saddles.
