The Trooper is based upon the English Universal Pattern military saddle. It does put you fairly high off the horse because of the suspended seat, but that's also why it is easy to ride for long periods. I've ridden a UP once and it did take some getting used to but it was comfortable. At that price I don't think you would be wrong if you want it for trail riding or hacking. The older Tarpin Hill saddles have a good rep, although I've never ridden one.
