Desoto Saddles?

Hey all, 7th here.

Been looking for a new saddle for my Arab gelding. I recently ran across the Desoto saddle company and am very interested with having them make me a saddle. Just wondering your though's or experiences with them. I have heard only good things about there saddles. Also are there any other saddle's you all recommend? I'm not interested in treeless as they have never worked for me and I've tried MANY models. Also want a saddle that puts me in a good dressage position. The saddle I ride in now puts me in a HORRIBLE chair position. I also put many miles in the saddle so comfort for the horse is a must. I have attached some pictures of my Arab so you can see his build(I only have action shots). One of the pictures was taken with a gopro so that's why it looks weird and "bubbled". Thank you all in advance! Molon Labe-Chris

One of my ride mentors, and probably only male heavy weight experienced rider I know rides an anglo in one. He recommended them to me. Not saying there arnt other male riders just he's the only one I regularly associate with.

I can't speak to a Desoto personally, but I have heard good things about them.

We fairly recently purchased an Arabian Saddle Company Rubicon, which we couldn't be more pleased with. Not only was it custom fit to the horse, but it puts the rider in a very correct position. I have several friends who have them as well and rave about them (one just finished her 10th 100 mile ride in that saddle!!).

I can't believe the irony - if this is the Desoto saddle maker I think it is, (and I believe it is!) She lives about 8 mi from me. I bought some hay from she and her husband this Spring...when I got there, she gave me a tour of her shop.....Let me tell you, they are outstanding!!! Wow! I saw the finished product, and one half-finished. You would be one lucky fellow to have one of these! :)

Thanks! So far I haven't heard one thing bad about Desoto. I think that's who I'll go with. I been saving all summer and most of last winter so I can only afford one blunder
