Didn't work for me, but nice

The regular tree fit my horse quite well. He is a 15.3 hd thoroughbred. However, I am 5'9 and the 16.5 did not fit me. The seat was the correct size, but I found it made my leg position awkward. I felt like I wasn't able to use my heel as efficiently. This is how the saddle was specifically for me. However, even though it did not work for me, it could still work for you. Shipping is fast and customer service is great with returns. The saddle was also of great quality for the price. The leather is a nice and beautiful color. Along the seat is glossy detailing which I think adds a lot to the aesthetic. I wish it had worked out for me.

Pics of saddle

16.5 seat on my 15.3 hd thoroughbred. He has average height withers (not very high or flat).

Comfortable but a lot of saddle

So I want to start by saying that this was one of the most comfortable saddles I have EVER ridden in, it's beautiful and eye-catching, and lighter than it looks like it will be. It fit the mare I'm leasing well and I chose it because it has the ICG system so when I buy my own horse I could change it if need be but the downside was it felt like too much saddle between myself and the horse. I found myself having difficulty making contact with through the saddle and couldn't feel what she was doing very well so it was a little frustrating. I tried adjusting my stirrups and the adjustable blocks to maybe solve the contact issue but ultimately I just felt like there was too much saddle between the horse and me. I also want to mention I'm 5'11 and ride a 15hh mare so contact is seldom a problem for me because I can almost wrap my legs around her. I would recommend the saddle but it just didn't work for me., unfortunately will be returning.
