Saddle help...what do you all know of this saddle
My mom got me The Trail Riders magazine and I saw a nice saddle that I thought looked comfortable. Please can you tell me all that you know on this saddle..if you own one, or have ridden in one, please tell me how the horse usually responds, how comfortable it actually is, and any pros and cons to it.
I'm looking for a saddle that I can pleasure ride in, trail ride, and do some jumping in if I get the itch to....this saddle I guess is close to being a bareback pad, but does have stirrups...which it what I do want....it sounds really nice and for $250 it's fairly reasonable on price. The pad is $50 I believe and the breastcolor is about $50 also...so all together I'm looking at $350 plus sales and/or shipping
Below is the name of the saddle and the website link. PLEASE let me know what you guys think of it.

I've heard that it's really nice but some people think it's too bulky I've never used one myself but I want one for my girl maggie one of my neighbors uses a natural ride bareback pad and really likes it it's about the same price you might want to look into one of those. hope I've helped

My riding instructor bought one a few months before she moved, so I rode in it about 10 times. It is super comfy and I really love it! I was thinking about getting one, but I am going to jump, and I don't know how much of a jumping saddle it is. It really teaches you to use your balance and your legs. It's a great saddle.

That looks very comfy for a long trail!

hmmm...from the reviews it sounds like it may cause just as many problems etc...maybe this isn't the saddle for me :(

I replied to another of your saddle posts. I looked at this saddle too. It sounds too iffy, and again, I don't see how it can distribute weight w/ no tree and be comfy for a horse for an endurance ride. You might be better off putting your money into a higher priced Flex tree. I think it would be okay for small trail rides for a confident rider.

Don't know which saddles you meant, the first link sends you to the main page of the site :)

it looks like it would shift easily; but I've never actually seen/ridden in one before
