Love the saddle
Got the test ride and loved the super deep seat and how secure I felt riding in it. I have the jump version of this saddle as well, so it fits the horse perfectly and can be fully adjusted.
Unfortunately the test ride was too small for me. I am 5'10" and in the jump saddle I fit in size 1 but this one caused lower back pain and a weird position for me. Going to try size 2.
Leather is super soft and the mono flap gives it a super close contact feel to the horse.
