Both are very well made, neither is a knockoff.
I've just recently figured that out. I also noticed that the GW Crate is changing its name. Maybe got some flack for using the Crates

I remember reading the writeup on Rider's Choice website some time ago and GW Crate was a relative of the owner. What is it being changed to?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

^^^ I asssume its "Riders Choice" I noticed many of the saddles for sale on Ebay are now listed under that name. Maybe they're just another brand of saddle for sale by the same company?

Crates Saddle Co is out of Chattanooga TN

GW Crates is Saddle Maker who works at Riders Choice in Bryant AL

I do not know of a blood relationship, but I heard form a few good sources GW Crates is a play on the Alphabet to get some business

PS, quality is night and day difference between Riders Choice and Crates, the Original out of Choo-Choo City is superior, IMO

.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Ah that makes sense. I wondered which was better, the Crates or GW. It looks like they use the same tree.
I have an email into Steele Equi-fit. I like the form saddle fitting idea of theirs. I'm guessing we don't have a fitter anywhere near us though

They both use Steele on the GW Crates and Crates models, the Riders Choice used Ralide too.

I have a set of 8 of the Steele Fit Forms if you want to borrow them
