      I bought this saddle 13....that's right 13 years ago at QH congress!!! Guess what? I still use it for shows and training rides. It does show some wear along the stitching but otherwise in perfect used condition. Fits my Appendix perfectly. I always kept it inside but didn't exactly clean and condition it like I should have in my younger years. It took the abuse well as the leather is still looking good.

          I use this saddle in the show ring. Schooling or class A. Looks just as good or better than the more expensive saddles.

            I was not really expecting a lot from this saddle for the price but was thrilled with what I got. It's an amazing value! Excellent quality with out breaking your budget! Fits both me and my horse great. Very comfortable. Only bad thing I will say is the pictures online don't do this saddle justice. My saddle I recieved is a much richer brown color (which I 100% prefer).

                    The twist is the part of the saddle(tree) that you will feel between your upper inner thighs.

                • Q:

                  This is my first time buying an English saddle. I have a huge QH, he's 16.3 & very muscular. So I'm not sure if he's consider a wide or reg. Width. How do I measure for this? Also I noticed it said saddle only so I it safe to assume I need to purchase iron, iron straps & saddle pad? Are. the seat measurements the same as a western saddle?

                    It would be best to call into customer service 800-365-1311. They will be able to answer all your questions and get a feel of what type of saddle would fit your horse and you. All the fittings for the saddle are sold separately and they will be able to help you find what works best and matches the saddle.

                    Yes you need to buy everything for it. It is just the saddle. My daughter's horse is a 16'2 QH and he is beefy and it fits very nice. I would go regular not wide. We bought the 17" and we average since ladies!

                    A:

                    Generally, a horse with higher or average withers would be a regular gullet. Lower withered horses, wider built breeds would need to go with a wider gullet. Always consult your trainer for proper fit.
