    Cashel Western Trail Saddle is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits Hard to Fit Horse My Appendix QH is a tough fit - high withers, wide shoulders with long shoulder blades, pockets behind the shoulders, narrower through the barrel. He is very sensitive and reactive to any poor fit, and is also recovering from a lumbar back injury. When he doesn't like his saddle, he starts having uncharacteristic behavior problems such as excessive spooking, unwillingness to stand still, rushing, and aggression toward riding buddies. I have been through at least 7 other saddles from good brands (Circle Y, Tucker, Steele, Parelli, High Horse) searching for a trail saddle that will keep him comfortable. I researched the Martin Axis tree used in this saddle, and thought there was no way it could really work as advertised for any horse conformation, but thanks to SmartPak's wonderful test ride program I could try it and see for myself. I tried the regular tree. He seemed happy from the moment I put it on - none of the usual dancing around, tail swishing, ear pinning. The fit was such that I did not have to over-tighten the girth to keep it from sliding side-to-side, and could still easily get on from the ground. The tree is flared at the front and back, which seems to give him better freedom for shoulder movement and does not pinch. I was worried that design might cause rocking, but it did not. Most importantly for us, the skirt is not connected with the opposite side where it extends behind the cantle. This creates an open channel and means no rubbing of his lumbar spine! I still need to shim to fill the pockets behind his withers, but hopefully that is only temporary as I work on building topline muscles. I am also a big fan of the adjustable rigging - using the 3/4 option seems to help keep the saddle from sliding backwards, which is a constant battle with all saddles for us. I was so happy to finally have multi-hour trail rides where he was just as well behaved at the end of the ride as he was at the beginning. No more increasing grumpiness with time due to an poorly fitting saddle. I love that there are rings for attaching gear in addition to the conchos with leather strings - makes it easy to clip on attachments without having to tie knots in the leather strings. The reason this saddle did not get 5 stars is because of the rider comfort. It is ok, but not great, especially compared to the Circle Y's I have tried. The twist is pretty wide, so not great for a woman. The padding is ok, not great either. I'll probably buy a seat cushion to use. My background is dressage, so I like my shoulder-hip-heel alignment. This saddle puts my heel just a touch forward, but not nearly as far as some western saddles that feel like a chair seat. I was still able to post the trot easily. In the end I decided that the most comfortable saddle is the one that my horse does not try to get me out of, so I decided to purchase this one based on the horse's comfort.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made by Martin with unique Axis Tree I test rode this saddle. I am 60-ish and trail ride as well as take Western Pleasure lessons. These are my opinions and findings: (1) This saddle is made by Martin Saddlery on its unique Axis tree, which flares away from the horse's scapula to afford shoulder movement more freely. For more info, see the videos on Martin Saddlery's website about this tree. (2) The overall quality is good. (3) The seat is comfortable with a noticeably narrow twist so that your hip flexors do not feel as stretched. The seat is well enough balanced and is padded (but not as much as the Julie Goodnight Monarch by Circle Y, which I also test rode and liked) (4) The leather is Herman Oak and looks good. (5) The fender leather is not lined. But the fenders felt comfy on the first ride and did not bother my knees. (6) The weight of the saddle is 24.5 pounds, and I was able to lift it without difficulty onto my 16.2 AQHA gelding. (7)Martin also makes this saddle with a square skirt, which increases the weight by a few pounds. (8)The regular tree gullet is 6.5 inches. The wide tree is a 7 inch gullet. (9)Overall, I would recommend this saddle to anyone looking for a decent quality, light weight trail saddle in this price range. I am going to order it in the wide tree for my foundation bred AQHA gelding as the regular tree did not fit him. I highly recommend that prospective buyers watch the videos about saddle fit and trees on Martin's website. They make good saddles and designed this trail saddle for Cashel. I hope that this summary helps those who are saddle shopping--it's never easy! Finally, I thank SMART PAK for the great TEST RIDE program! Not all vendors have such a wonderful program and this type of exceptional customer service!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs wide I have been interested in this saddle for a few years now. Since my current saddle doesn't fit quite right and Smartpak now carries a Test Ride option for this saddle I thought, "Perfect! I can give it a try". It came yesterday and OMG does this saddle run wide! My horse is not wide so I ordered the Medium tree. The gullet width seems about right for a medium, but the angle of the bars is so wide there was no way this could work. Thank you Smartpak for letting me try it though!
