I've come a crossed the chance to buy one. My horse currently rides in about a 25/30 pounder western saddle. Being she is 14.2(stocky) and I'm not the lightest rider, but I'm not to big either. Have lots tons of weight since the beginning of the year, anyway.
A friend of mine is selling hers. Barely used in good condition. I know it is a synthetic, I also ride my other horse in a synthetic. The western saddle I ride my 14.2 hand horse in right now, is a sante fe roping saddle. Its not made light weight for barrels like I need it to be. Sure trails are fine, but I want something light weight for barrels.
I have heard good reviews more then bad. I have heard some people say they've had there's for 20 years and others say they've had there's for a couple months and it broke. I read reviews where the person has said they make very crappy trees for the saddles. But then I've heard people say there's has been flipped over on ect and is still rideable.
I'm just wanting some opinions on it. Thanks.
