Overall, decent quality, fits well, comfortable
This saddle is very comfortable, I have English riggings and trail glide stirrups. So far, I have been overall pleased with my most recent Tucker T49.
I would have purchased a second used and "older" T49, but the tree didn't fit my second horse that I was outfitting. After several different saddles, the new Tucker Classic T49, fit the best.
I do ding this saddle a star as the leather quality isn't as nice as my older Tucker. I'm hopefull with a lot of conditioner and use, it will become more supple.

Quality and comfort without breaking the bank!
Tucker has long been a favorite of mine for making a trail saddle that doesn’t put me in debt but fits me and my horse very well. They’re very comfortable for long rides but yet I don’t sob if I get caught out in the rain. It’s a really good saddle all around. I’ll forever be a Tucker fan!

Comfortable for my horses & me with great quality
Owned a Tucker Classic Equitation for over 12 years and used it regularly (4-6 days a week / trail ). Until three years ago I had registered Appaloosas from quarter horse lines so they were built stocky. This saddle fit them beautifully! It was also comfortable for me with my joint, knee, back etc. issues (arthritis and fibromyalgia - I am 61 now). The saddle was quality personified with hefty but supple leather. The combination of western feel seat and English stirrup leathers is definitely what made it comfortable for me! Finally, I used the saddle regularly and had quite a few hours on it but, when I was forced to sell it, I got slightly more than I originally paid for it. Now, that is quality (and good maintenance... Lol)
I highly recommend this saddle for you & your horses.

Leather Quality VeryPoor
Good news: saddle fits TB/Percheron cross 16h. 1500lbs. Bad news saddle leather is VERY stiff, close to impossible to work with making adjusting stirrups a cuss-worthy task EVERYTIME. Spending more money on Tuckers Conditioner to try to soften up with not much luck.
