Big Horns?

I'm thinking about going with a Big Horn saddle for endurance and found this one online for $550. Any thoughts/experiences with these?

I haven't, but I REALLY like the "No horn" on the pommel. I like all of the rings for attaching stuff, too.

4 of us at my barn ride in big horn endurance. One has almost an identical one to the one posted and she loves it. I adore mine, perfect for my mare and SO comfortable, mine is the all leather one, as are the other two at my barn. No negitives I can think of...

I've got one. I like it. It weighs nearly nothing maybe even less than my english saddle.

I have one as well. I had a leather worker add a cinch ring to the leading curve of the existing cinch ring holder. See the existing cinch ring is directly under the stirrup fender. Made the saddle set way too far back on horses back. IE your horses' girth area would need to be directly under your leg. If your horses girth area is there, great. But I have short backed Arabs whose girth area is pretty close to the elbow. My saddle works ok with added ring.

Could you post a picture of this? I'm very interested in how it worked.
