I have several friends who have them as well and rave about them (one just finished her 10th 100 mile ride in that saddle!!).
Yes, Arabian Saddle Company would be my first choice but the price range is a little high for me. I really need something within the next month to finish off the endurance season because I hate the saddle I ride in now Unless someone has a used Arabian saddle comp. They'd sell me for around the $1600 range. Molon labe-Chris

There was an ad on for someone selling a used Solstice for about that price.. seems like a really nice saddle, I just didn't have that kinda $ for it right now.

But having a custom made Desoto sounds pretty darned good too!

I just ride for pleasure on my property, and not nearly as much as you, so my English saddles are perfectly adequate...(Love their light weight, and simply that!) However.... If I rode endurance, or long trail rides, I would do everything I could to get the custom Desoto - I've seen the work shop, finished saddle, half-finished saddle, touched, drooled..Well, almost haha! I believe she also has a patented mold kit that's then sent back to her for a perfect fit. I asked her that day why I've never even seen this advertised? (in our county) She's 8 mi away, and I never knew (it's a very remote area, so not unusual)... She said she has so many orders nation wide she doesn't even need to - I believe it! :)

Have you checked out Synergist saddles? I too have a small Arab gelding & have been in search of the best light weight trail saddle. I've just about decided to buy, but it will be my last/best saddle & I dont' want to make a mistake for my horse or myself!
