Great Saddles

Crestridge Saddlery in Missouri. You send them measurements of your horse and pictures and they custom build the saddle but at a great price. They have full leather, half synthetic (18 lbs on average), and what I would call 3/4 synthetic (14 lbs). The seat is a gel type that feels like memory foam. Beautiful, well built, with a seat that I feel safe in. She will custom add extras - I ordered mine with a 5 inch cantle and cheyenne roll.

Crestridge pics on my Rocky

This is the Crestridge Ovation Lite that we decided on. The second pic shows a white sheet underneath the saddle pad. The owner of Crestridge asked me to do this in order to make sure the saddle was fitting properly by checking the sweat pattern on the sheet.

Way too many saddles don't hold their value, generally an older Circle Y and the Billy Cooks do. They are well worth buying.

But they hold up well too, don't fall apart, stand up to heavy using and the leather and craftsmanship is good.

Others used to be made well, or fairly well, but fell into cheaper making and they aren't worth the money, nor do they hold a resale value long.

For western saddles I like Crates, Billy Cook, RS saddlery and (don't kill me lol) but I like the Showmans. Not the cheap imported ones, but the ones made by Corriente. They are really nice saddles but they have cheap silver.

For english I love my wintec close contact! It's so comfy and you stick to it. It's great for hard to fit horses like mine since it has the changeable gullet system.

I like the old school stuff. :P My favorite Western saddle has been my great-grandfather's 1952 Hess & Hopkins ranch saddle and my favorite English one has been my 1980 Felsbach AG/Courbette Husar.

I love Collegiates too! My old saddle (which I still have, but have sadly outgrown) is a 1999 Collegiate Regency made when Ruiz Diaz and Collegiate were manufacturing saddles together in Argentina. It's great compared to most Argentine saddles and is soooo soft! I have only slightly outgrown it, so I still ride it sometimes just because I love it so much. :P
