I'd look into the different brand personally. If you are short on money go with the used nice brand or look into the synthetic one (like Thorowgood, or Tekna, or Wintec). Camelot saddles are low quality with the cheap leather and tree, and usually are a bad fit for the horse.
Thx 4 the feedback, i'll prob get a used crosby (since they last forever) or something like that. If I get a saddle, that is. I see good reviews on the tack sites, but bad feedback on them on forums, answer sites, etc. Still, anyone hav it and know the gullet size? Kinda curious is the thing!!!
I have a camelot, and the quality is much better than anyone is saying (This is in my case.) Panels are even, and tree is very sturdy.After breaking it in and taking good care of it I love it more than my Bevel. The panels are super cushy, and my horse has no complaints. Here's a picture after a years use of mine, and it out of the box!
Well you get what you pay for. This especially applies to saddles. The leather would be cheap, and there's no guarantee on the comfort for you or your horse. For a lower priced saddle, I would look into a synthetic such as a thorowgood, wintec, or a tekna. Posted via Mobile Device
