My favourite saddle is the one that I use on my paint, a Continental. It's so comfortable although a little heavy for me to lift.
I've tried other ones too but none was as soft in the seat as this one. Also I like that it has a nabuck covered seat, makes it easier for me to stay on (or, it helped when I started riding)

Show me your horse, and I will tell you who you are.

My favorite saddle is my Tucker High Plains, love how that cantle holds you in so nice and comfy and secure. The worst was a Circle Y barrel saddle that fit like crud and rode like a board. The one that got away was a Rocking R gaited that I still wish I hadn't sold.

I love Stubben's. My first saddle was a beautiful and barely used Stubben Sigfried VSS. Loved it and I totally 100% regret selling it.

My other absolute favorite was a beautiful Rembrandt that I too, regret selling.

Both saddles fit like a glove and were so comfortable. Loved them both - I tried tracking down both saddles just recently but those who bought from me, sold them as well.

Meh, lesson learnt.

The saddle I cannot stand, are HDR's. Cheaply made, I don't like them at all. I was using an HDR and it started to come apart, and friends who rode with me had HDR's and they too, fell apart. The leather is cheap quality as well. Blah all round.

My favourite saddle would definatly have to be my Bates Dressage Saddle. I bought it second hand and it has to be the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned. The worst saddle I have ridden in is the saddle that the pony I am currently schooling came with. It is a very old Wintec and is lumpy, stiff and has the thingys above where you hook the stirrup leather digging into you legs.

I have my junior jumping saddle. The seat is a little small, yet the saddle itself is so comfortable. I got it as a gift from my riding instructer. Never looked back. = )

I love my Circle

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I love ym Circle Y barrel saddle. It's so comfortable and it fits almost all my horses perfectly.

I also have an older english jumping saddle (Brand = ??) that was what I learned to jump in a few years ago. I still like to jump in my western, though!

And then theres the stiff, old, dead wintec one I have that Mom and I used to break in colts and weeellll....let's just say it isn't as good as it used to be :)

Hmmm... Hereford balance ride, interesting, I have never seen one, do you have a picture. Would love to see how the seat is made. Hereford makes a great saddle and I am just wondering if it is similar to their Kotula model.
