Anything new and priced that low is poor, poor, poor quality and shouldnt even be given a first glance.

I have never seen a single one of those "saddle sets" that I would be willing to put on a horse I hated, let alone torment a horse I loved by making them pack me around in one.


With the exception of a very few brands, any new saddle (not set, just the saddle itself) that is less than $500 is going to be junk. Most saddles that are less than $800 new are junk.

My best suggestion? Stop looking and keep saving until you can either purchase a good, big name, used saddle or find something that is affordable and still good quality, like Corriente.

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/

Unfortunately, most people wouldn't know a good saddle if it walked up and slapped them in the face. Just because a saddle has a few good reviews, that doesn't mean that it's good quality.

There's definitely better options for the money.

You can get a nice used older saddle for just little bit more money and it will last you a lot longer.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
