RS Training saddles? Good quality?
My friend's trainer is a dealer and sells RS Training saddles.
I'm possibly interested in buying one, however I heard there are mixed reviews. Some VERY good, other VERY bad.
I've been looking for lightly used Billy Royals. I wanted a Circle Y then got told about the leather not being so great...
Anyways any tips or reviews you can give the RS Training saddle?
Don't know about those but my cousin is selling a lightly used Circle Y. She LOVES Circle Y but the saddle wasn't working for her horse any longer. She rode lightly in it for 13 months. I have rode in it myself...nice saddle!!!
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the leather Circle Y uses. Their quality has always been the best.
I was browsing the site and the stirrups on the kid's saddle are hung too far back. A little advice, don't get a saddle with a rawhide braided horn if an economy model. It is often paper thin. The regular leather wrapped horn outlasts the others 10 x and if the horn cap stitching breaks it is not a big deal to restitch. If the rawhide horn cover breaks it looks like crap and greatly devalues the saddle. Something about these saddles ....hmmm.... I wouldn't buy one.
RS is decent considering the price they want
Billy Royal makes a great Saddle
Circle Y, yes dozens of people have told me their Leather is not as good as it was 8-10 years ago.
Thanks for the replies.
This is the one I'm looking at.
Thank you all for the replies--
Thought about it a lot and I decided to buy a Billy Royal saddle instead. Again, thank you for your help!
They are pretty cheap saddles. Around here you cant even get somebody to buy them for a couple hundred bucks. And like stated the stirrups are hung waaaay far back. I have been to the RS shop not very great quality. Better off going with what you said
