Well he does endorse them, the minute you state you prefer or admire any product is when you endorse it whether you get paid or not. I was at the Horse Fair in Madison, WI this year and he was not only endorsing them there, but also on RFD TV during a segment. They had 3 saddles for sale at the horse fair, all for $1800 plus.
Someone on another forum has a demo Freedom saddle for sale for $1800. If they are so concerned about fit why would they list it on a forum to sell it?
I agree to disagree, sometimes the cost of a product does not make it the do all and end all. I think OrthoFlex is one of the prime examples. The saddle made to fit almost every horse didn't fit a single horse I had gaited or non gaited and that was both the old and new style.
Another point why spend that much money when horses change shape over the years. Every try to sell or trade in one of them. You can if you are lucky usually get about half the original cost. I don't know about everyone, but I don't like to burn money up like that.
I buy what fits, not what says it will fit.
A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....
