Saddle didn’t suit

The saddle didn’t suit me too heavy and super wide twist. Was like an old roping saddle. It was super well made and beautiful. The gal Jamie that I worked with was really nice and professional I wished the saddle worked out. The return was easy and quick

C Johnson

Just wanted to say i am absolutely blown away by the quality and craftsmanship of this saddle. For The price it completely exceeded my expectations and the accompanying paper helping make sure the saddle fit, suggestions, how to use the heart pad properly and of course the sticker are greatly appreciated.

Ellen and Phil

I wanted to let you know that my saddle was delivered on Saturday, 5/7. I CANNOT believe how fast it was from the time I ordered it, to when it showed up!

The quality of this saddle seems to be everything that I expected and hoped for.

I've done two rides in it this weekend already. The first was a short, casual ride to get the feel for it and to see how Phil responded. The second was a longer trail ride, which included going up a good size hill that has a cell phone tower on top.

also have the HAH pad on as well to help with the muscle atrophy he has on his topline.

Appreciate all your help with this! LOVE LOVE LOVE my saddle SO MUCH!
