Lol the second saddle made me giggle. So atrocious! I have accepted the fact that I'll be looking at about $300 for a nice high quality tack set.

So any suggestions for nice, well made tack with options for customization?

I got a flex-tree saddle from Hilason. I really like it actually. It fits my horse well and he's a hard one to fit. Its held up since ive bought it and keeps my butt in it around the barrels. Their barrel saddles are nice... Now for those ^^^^... oh my. gross.

This is mine(:
Western Flex-tree Round Skirt Saddle With Floral Carving Tan Harness & Black Rough out Seat : HSTT200

All leads up to the time they make, with every step that wild horse takes.. It's a gamble , she can handle, 'cause he's her leap of faith.'

I have hilason tack as well. Their store is about twenty minutes away from me. Majority of their leather is very nice and supple with proper care and maintenance. I personally have one of the tacky saddles (cheetah hair on everywhere lmao dunno what I was thinking) and have had it for about a year for the small barrel races and daily riding of both my horses (short wide appendix mare and tall fat hunt seat horse) the flex tree is really nice and when I has problems with my stirrups not running short enough they gladly punched more holes in. Hilason will also do a custom tack set for you for an extra charge.
I would just be wary if your horse has a small head or a long head their tack may not fit, and from my experience the breast collars can be a bit big on a small horse.

I know this is an older thread, but I'll post for people in the future looking into this brand. I personally have never seen their work in person, but I've done quite a bit of research. The reviews are inconsistant. Some people say they are great, but most have horror story of breaking off fenders, and the saddle slipping a lot.
If you look into threads such as this, but on other sites, 99% of the positive reviews are CLEARLY written by Hilason workers. These poster's have posts ONLY promoting the brand, they have no avaters, no profile info, ect. From my research I would not trust Hilason for any of their work, because they poorly advertise the product.

His feet are as swift as rolling thunder, as he carries me away from all my fears, and when the world threatens to throw asunder, his mane is there to wipe away my tears <3

^^ And their products are a dime a dozen on eBay. I have been trying to figure out a way to filter them out......Hate them.
