Crest Ridge Saddlery


Stay Away from King, Royal King, Double T, Hilason

.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

You looked at Stonewalls ?
Stonewall Sport Saddle
Crestridge's were nice I had one for a day, Horrible fit. Not even close, doenst look like it was even made to fit a horse. Kinda frustrating considering the emails, wither tracings tapes pictures measurements etc etc etc , worse fitting job I have ever seen.

I had a Stonewall once, it was an OK saddle but wouldn't be my first choice if I was going to do a season of hard riding . Also IMHO I think there over priced at $1600. I ended up selling mine.

No matter the looks of a saddle or the cost it's all about fit for your horse and youself. The specialized saddle is the only saddle thit is adjustable in all 3 dimensions. My horse is different in her comformation in saddle fit on her right side as compared to her left. Due to the SS shim and wedge system I can adjust for that, no other saddle can do that for me.

Here is a little video I made that you might get a chuckle watching:

Have you tried other Wintec models? I don't care for most of the Wintecs I have ridden in, but for me the Wintec Isabell fits like a glove. LOVE it. Other Wintecs, no thanks. The narrow twist of the Isabell is perfect for me. Maybe try sitting in several models if you have a dealer nearby?

Wintecs are only made for tiny hinies, Seems like they max out at 16/18. I liked their endurance saddle, but too small.
I really think endurance needs more fat people. That way all the used saddles for sale wouldnt be 15"

I just did a 25 mile ride and tie in a Eurolight specialized and loved it! The seat was harder than I expected but my tush isn't sore. I've struggled to find a saddle that will fit my mare and after 2 people hopping on and off her every mile or so for 25 miles! The saddle never moved! Nor did it shift while mounting! I will be ordering one tomorrow!

This is my third season in my Specialized Eurolight and still love it. I have a fitting kit for two very different horses. It's very light and well built, I like that you can place the stirrup leather where you want and can adjust it to a changing horse through the season. It's not top quality leather, but it doesn't wear or break in any condition. I know lots of people doing serious endurance with that model.

I agree that customer service was poor and it took for ever to get the saddle. I'd suggest someone buy through a reseller rather than directly with the company to avoid the hassle.

You have to know a little about saddle fitting to do a good job or have someone knowledgeable around. You have to want to play with the fittings until the match is perfect.

My lightess saddle is a treeless Barefoot Cheyenne, if you're open to go treeless.
