I've never heard of this brand. There's a saddle line much loved by gaited horse owners, called the Tennessean, but they are made by Crates and look more western in their shape, not like this one. This one has a different tree, obviously which will 'ride' differently than the usual western pommel. I had a similar saddle for a while (Crest Ridge) and was surprised how easy it was to fall out of....even at a walk. It felt narrow up front. However, it was very comfortable, great for my knees and for feeling the horse and being relatively close contact. This saddle looks very pretty and in good condition from the pictures.
