Riders Choice Barrel Saddle?

Has anyone ever used one? what do you think of them?

They are on e-bay and American made.

CG, I've heard good things about them...actually, I haven't really heard any bad things. I've just heard that they're well-built, comfortable, and trees are of good quality.

I, personally, don't like them because they're all rough-out fenders and I hate rough-out even if I am barrel racing but that isn't really relevant to what you're asking :P ETA - I was wrong, they're not all rough-out...I'm still stickin' to my treeless.

Hope somebody comes along who has gotten one! I know there are a few people on CS forum that have gotten some.

PS, good to see you here!

You could look them up on horsetackreview.com perhaps some owners have posted some comments on them there. Good Luck! 8)

I know this is a little old, but I bought one a while back and sold it and it was the worst mistake I made. I really miss it and would like to get another one. If anyone knows where I can get a nice used one let me know. The saddle I had was so comfy and it fit my horse very well.

I love my Riders Choice Saddle!

Hi all,
I am new to the forum, but noticed some discussion about Rider's Choice saddles. I have one and absolutely love it - but it is too big for me and I have been hoping to sell it so that I can buy another in a smaller seat size (and yes, I would buy another before I would look at anything else). It is the GW Crates Trail Saddle - retails for $949 with shipping. I can't say enough good things about this saddle - extremely comfortable and well-made. The only thing I would say is that the seat size is probably 1/2" bigger than as stated. Mine is a 16" seat (but I measure at 16-1/2") and between being borderline too big anyway, and me losing a significant amount of weight since I got it - I definately need a smaller saddle. Also - I have the square skirt and it is 26" long, so it is pretty big on a smaller, short-backed horse. Besides being an excellent quality saddle, it is very pretty. So, I would recommend the Rider's Choice saddle - at least the model that I have.
