Here are some pictures from the Oregon coast. My new saddle exceeds my expectations in every way. Not only is it a beautiful saddle, it is by far, the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned. I love the leather, and you were absolutely right about the leather choice for the seat. I’m also very happy about how it fits my horses. I’m sitting deeper in the saddle and feel that I have more contact with my horse. Unlike the last saddle I rode in, being able to move my feet forward makes a huge difference. I, especially when gaiting on the Tennessee Walkers.
Thanks, Eric, for all of your input and guidance through the process of ordering this saddle. I have already referred several people to Steele and won’t hesitate to do so in the future.
