Personally NOT a fan of them....the one I won threw my feet back when a horse would set up to turn. It would throw me forward and since my feet were already back I was stuck and couldn't get set back down. I couldn't get my feet forward no matter what I did with the stirrups. They are just to free swinging for my liking.
And friends of mine that Jr. Rodeo and have won them also hate them for that reason....they are trophy saddles and just that because they don't like how it throws their feet back and them forward.
I actually just sold an Elite Custom, finest saddle I've ever sat on hands down but it was too big. Going to start saving, triple creek or double j hut I needed something to ride in asap! Posted via Mobile Device
Hands down the best customer service of any place I've dealt with!
My saddle was quoted to be done in a little over 90 days, I emailed Paige asking if it's still on schedule and she said they got their hands on some of the stingray I wanted and that out should ship out in two weeks!!
I emailed her back about how awesome they are and she said it finished ahead of schedule and will be shipping out today!
I am not really a fan--my first two real saddles were of this brand. They were both heavier than my current saddle. I also experienced the stiff set-up for your feet. It always fit akwardly on my horse. I recently won a cactus saddle- we ordered it big so I can grow into it but I was so eager to get into a different brand I ride in it anyways.
