Talking What do you think of this saddle?

Hey guys I'm looking to get a good western saddle for my baby girl. She is halter breed and she is still growing. So I need some thing that she isn't going to grow out of. I loved this saddle

JT International

Does any one now any thing about the brand and the saddle itself? I found one on ebay but its way cheeper so I'm not sure if its good or just some cheep joke.

ROYAL KING RB Auto-Adjust Training Saddle - 16'' - eBay (item 350206819695 end time Jun-25-09 16:03:32 PDT)

If any one has one that they would be willing to sell I might just buy it. :)

That's an interesting concept with the auto adjust bars....I've never seen a western saddle with that ability...I'm curious to here if others have tried it out.

Frankly, I don't believe the saddle can fit ANY horse. Those flex-trees sit on my horse withers right there (she's narrow with high withers). Also personally I had pretty bad experience with the seller - the not cheap bridle I got from them broke in parts after 5 or so times. And I had bad time getting a refund.

I know too many people that have tried that saddle and a few other saddles from that company, they hated them, they are from India and have hollow trees, not to mention they tear up easy.



.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Which line is she bred from; Impressive, Two Eyed Jack, etc.? She will probably bulk up on the muscle so I would venture a guess that you may need a full quarter horse bar saddle. I have a Simco roping saddle that is very well made and it was very reasonably priced. How old is she?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Go to horseloverz.com. They have good tack, and for a good price as well. They have never messed up any of my orders, and are good with customer service if you have any questions. Shipping is pretty fast too.

I personally do not shop on ebay, because you never know what your really ordering, or if it is even real.

Both are cr@p Asian import saddles. I wouldn't put one on a horse if you paid me to.

You're better off going used if you can't afford a good new saddle, or go synthetic (quality, USA made synthetic).

Not going to happen. Even treeless saddles have to "fit". True, you can do a lot more adjusting with many by swapping out pommels or changing padding, but even a treeless saddle must fit the horse.

Buy an older used saddle that you can turn around and sell for about the same price once she outgrows it. Get one slightly too wide and pad her up for now, so she'll take a little longer to outgrow it. That's what I did with my halter mare.
