Hilason saddles

My western saddle search continues for my QH mare. Anybody heard of the Hilason saddle?

Flex-Tree Hilason Barrel Racing Trail Western Saddle 17 - eBay (item 220523091593 end time Dec-13-09 18:20:27 PST)

I know, its pink, run away run away! But I really like it, it's not so overly pink that it hurts the eyes, at least not to me.

Color has nothing to do with it

Read the reviews of the unfortunate that have heard of them and bought one

Bad bad BAD saddles. Just picture this, a thirteen year old in a board stiff saddle that barely stays on the horse going around barrels. The second the girl turned the first barrel the saddle went under the horse, as did the girl.

Basically, they are inflexible and do not fit many horses at all. The quality of the leather is average, and they tend not to stay tight on the horse, no matter how much you tighten the girth.

Yikes, all of those, even the people that like them, seem to say the same thing. Back to the drawing board!

I wish I could find this saddle:





It's a well-made no name that a friend got off of ebay a couple of years ago. It is so comfy to ride in!

That kind of looks like a Dakota brand saddle I saw once.

What kind of saddle are you looking for? What are your criteria? I have a couple REALLY nice ones for sale.

Had a friend buy a hilason saddle and rode in it once then sold it. She said it was a coochie eater and wouldn't stay put. I haven't heard any good reviews on that brand. You get what you pay for.

I may have actually have found a saddle. Friend of mine is selling hers. It's a another no-name but appears to be good quality leather. Now the hard part is going to be finding matching black headstall and breast collar.

QHD, I would avoid a no name saddle. Typically, even if the leather appears to be adequate, the trees are generally pretty poorly made. They often look good to the uneducated or someone with a very limited budget generally all those saddles are either Asian or Mexican imports and I would stay clear of them.

Look for a good American made saddle - a used Dakota is a good value or contact Kevin at SouthernTrails.

(BTW, the saddle you show doesn't appear to fit that horse too well.)
