    It kind of makes me wonder why your trainer was using it in the first place...?[/QUOTE]

    Hand up, PICK ME, PICK ME, PICK ME.... I bet I know why he's got that saddle, and I promise it's wrong and dirty buisness. If I'm correct...

    I think I'd find another trainer. Anyone who'd bs you about a saddle isn't someone I'd be handing lesson money to.

    Agree wholeheartedly with the OPs this saddle if he really intended on using it himself can be altered be a saddle maker to make the stirrups shorter quite easily. I had it done to mine for the same reason. He has to know this if he's a trainer. So, stay away from this one for sure. Good luck.

    You don't even need a saddle maker to do it, just get a hole punch yourself...Jeeze.

    Sorrelhorse, sometimes the fenders need shortening at the top so the straps can slide farther around the tree, then go up another hole. I'm thinking this trainer is either a dwarf for a jockey to need stirrups that short.

    He is a very short man. He is from mexico, and is PHENOMENAL with horses, and buys the things that he likes and works for him without much emphisis on brand or feedback.

    He genuinely bought this saddle for the simple fact that he liked it, as hard as that is to believe. He has helped me out A LOT with my horse, free of charge, just because he saw me struggling. I seriously doubt he is trying to "pawn" a saddle off on me, but merely trying to get something off his hands that he bought that didn't quite work out for him, especially since him and his wife are expecting baby number four :)

    I mentioned in my OP that his character was not the issue, just wondering if the saddle was worth the price.

    To defend him, because I feel like I need to: His horses are very well trained, and get started off right. He trains reiners at my barn, and those horses have the lightest, softest mouths I have ever seen. He does all of this quietly with light hands (and a little discipline when needed).

    Time and time again he has offered tidbits of help where most trainers would have just said "why don't we set up a lesson and you can pay me x amount of dollars"

    Anywho, again. Thank you for the feedback on the SADDLE :)

    Here he is on his 3 y/o mare
