I've now used two of these saddles and would buy another, but they don't hold up well to regular use. One of mine, the flap by the calf wore straight through. This last one, the stirrup bar bent for no reason I could discern, and while I could bend it back, the moment I put the leather back through and put weight in the stirrups, it bent again. Dangerous when you're out riding.~nl~~nl~I find these saddles very comfortable and my wide, oddly-warmbloodish TB seemed to also. I jsut wish they'd hold up.
