Very stiff at first! Darker than the picture. Very beautiful!!

5 Stars

This appears to be a decent saddle for the money. First you will need a girth two sizes bigger, as the bullets are super short. The billets are also very stiff so plan on using some muscle to hoist the girth on for a period of time. Unless you have a super narrow horse, purchase the wide tree. For some reason the saddle seems to sit a bit downhill on all the horses, so a simple Roma type lift pad will correct this aspect if necessary. This saddle looks nice and is comfortable for horse and rider. The leather is coarse and somewhat "cheap" looking, but the saddle as a whole seems quite sturdy. Because the tree has a limited warranty, I would treat it carefully, and it may not be the best choice for someone heavy, like a large man. On the positive side, I am a tall woman and the 18 inch saddle seems to have plenty of leg room in the flaps. The knee rolls are also super comfy. For someone who doesn't want to spend tons $$$ on a saddle and is not a saddle "snob", I would strongly recommend this saddle.

4 Stars

I'll give this saddle 4 stars because it seemed to be of nice quality for the price. The knee rolls and seat were very soft leather, though the skirt panels were very stiff. I never got to ride in mine and sent it back right away because it did not fit my horse. I ordered a wide tree and this was the most narrow wide tree I've ever seen. I'd call it a medium at best. The billets are also very short, order a girth at least one size or maybe two sizes longer than you'd normally need.

5 Stars

The magnificent saddle, is executed from a quality leather. Soft skin on a forward pillow. Firm and wearproof skin on wings. Very high-quality execution of a saddle.
