Thank you for constructing a saddle that is as comfortable as my couch… it’s perfect for me and for my horse! My photo reflects the amount of freedom and ease at which the light cedar tree offers my mare to move easily around the barrel for mounted shooting. The lightness and deep seat are key, I’m in sync, I can feel her every move. This saddle is constructed well with impressive quality leather, and I’m sure I will get many a good year of wear going forward. Thank you for providing the great consumer service and reassurance while the saddle was under construction. It was worth the wait. Also, the saddle pad is amazing and so is the breast collar! I’m getting tons of compliments. – Michele K.
