    Comments about Premier Derby Saddle:

    This isn't a derby brand saddle. It's a Paris tack brand being sold as derby. The leather was very cheap and flimsy. The flaps felt like thin cardboard. Was not comfortable to sit it and it pinched my horse. He threw a fit in it. I do not recommend going the cheap route with a saddle. Learned my lesson quick. Bought an HDR to replace this one and have had great success.

      Comments about Premier Derby Saddle:

      It's an awesome saddle for the price, for sure! I bought a 17 and it was a little smaller than I realized but I fit in it fine. When it came out of the packaging, I was expecting it to be stiff but it was actually pretty comfortable when I rode for the first time. The leather is soft and very nice looking quality. It's super lightweight also, so I don't have a problem with lugging it around. The only thing I have a problem with is that the straps for the girth are a little short. I ordered a 48" girth for my horse, which I know fits her just fine because I used it on her with my trainer's saddle and girth. When I got this, the girth is too short to reach, even with elastic bands at the end. I noticed that the straps on the saddle I bought were shorter than the ones I used on my trainer's saddle. Other than that, I have no problems!

        Comments about Premier Derby Saddle:

        I love this saddle! Soooo comfy and light! The saddle is a little too wide on my horse so it slides back but hes still growing (hes turning 3)so he still has plenty of time to grow into it. i absolutely love it and highly recommend it! I compared this saddle to one at a popular tack store here, the only difference was the price... 1300$ compared to this one! Great price!

        Comments about Premier Derby Saddle:

        This saddle is amazing. the wide tree fit both my warmblood and my ottb amazingly, who both by the way have monster withers, there was plenty of clearance. This saddle also puts you in a comfortable position, I ordered a 17.5 and it fit more like a 17. It is a weird color when you take it out the package, but it oils down into a darker brown with time, the leather was a little stiff but it will break in eventually, It does have knee rolls and padded flaps, something that i wasn't expecting. Over all this is a wonderful saddle for the price, i'd buy it again.

        • Q:

          I read on some reviews that it fits a little small. How do I measure to ensure I choose the best size for me?

            A:

            There really is no way to measure yourself with out sitting in the saddle. You have 10 days to try the saddle for fit with you and the horse once you receive it. If it doesn't fit you or the horse you can contact customer service. They will have FedEx pick the saddle back up for you no charge.

            Yes, all saddles have a 10 day trial time on them. We will call tag it if it does not work for you.
