Specialized eurolight saddle??

Have any of you used one of these saddles or know somebody who has? I am having severe longing when I look at it. 12 pounds.

I'm not 100% the model I ride in is a Eurolight (or it might be an earlier version of it) but I ride in a very similar model from Specialized Saddles. So very, very comfortable with a nice seat too!

Does it seem to be well made?

I'm no saddle expert but I think they are very well made.

You must pay a certain amount, but SS has a demo program so you can try one out!

I have a specialized eurolight saddle.

I found the customer service very poor with the company.

I find the seat uncomfortable.

It's very light weight, which is fabulous. It has tons of D-Rings. I think the leather looks cheap, but it seems to wear well, after about 100 miles in the saddle. I think it would probably hold up well to endurance riding, and since it's not too "fancy," I wouldn't mind riding it in bad weather or through water.

I like that the stirrup position is adjustable. I wish the girth position was adjustable.

I was having trouble getting a really good fit with the pads. I called the owner, and he said I was "close enough, and the pads will squish down and mold to my horses back." I did a few training rides, two 18 mile rides, and a 25 mile LD. My horse now has LARGE white hairs on his withers and back on both sides. There were never any dry spots under the saddle and he never palpated sore after rides. Needless to say, I don't use the saddle anymore. It didn't work for me.

I ride in one! I've put around 300 miles on it so far. I find it very comfortable, the workmanship and leather are great, and the adjustment of the pads is not hard at all. It's incredibly lightweight and rides more like an English saddle than most, which is why I bought it.

During competitions, I use a half pad (or an equipedic pad if you got one) underneath for extra cushion. For everyday riding, I just use a dressage pad underneath and all is well.

Kinda ugly, but if they work... who cares

There are some Specialized Saddle reviews here Trail Saddles

For $1500 I'd be looking at a known reputable firm.

I can't find another brand with a similar design that is so light weight. Any suggestions?
