Light weight, yet fits snug. Love the product!
I absolutely love the quality of the leather. I would have preferred actual suede on the seat, and not microsuede (like on couches) for the price point, but it is super duper pretty, still. I love the narrow twist of the seat, and it is breaking in and becoming more comfortable. It is lovely to be able to adjust the gullet to fit my horse, and I do love the style, not that it is in person. I originally wanted western, but I ride in a 16, and my horse is only 14.1 with a shorter back. I really needed something short, and light, and still western look, and this fit the bill perfectly. I remember first seeing them on the market some years ago, the campo's first, and then these. And I wanted to try one so badly! I wasn't able to ever see one in person, but after hearing other reviews from riders I went for it. I have a really messed up back, and tried so long to ride in something that was treeless for my horses growing back, but I just couldn't find anything that fit us both, that didn't give me severe back pain. I've had this saddle for 2 weeks, and I'm not sure why, but after riding in this, my back feels better. I suffer from sciatica, and last year I was laid low in bed for weeks, but I'm only 46 and feel like I have so much more left to do on the back of a horse :) I'm hoping this saddle allows me to keep going while I heal from my sciatica and strengthen my back. OH and almost most importantly, my horse loves it. And she is a true princess and the pea when it comes to stuff she doesn't like! I've tried so many saddles on her, english treed, western, treeless, and this one is perfect!
Perfect replacement to adjust my DP Saddle.
This pad is perfect under the El Campo saddle and just the right thickness!
These totally remove the bulk under your upper legs.
It fits well. Recommend!
Love it! It perfectly matches up with my quantum short and light western saddle!
Solid and Sturdy! And the delivery was impressively fast! Thank you!
I'm in my 60's and I want something light and comfort. So glad that the quantum short and light works out for me and my boy. We can't wait to enjoy our trial rides!
The color and the hand carving tooling are BREATHTAKINGLY beautiful! Works great for Working Equitation.
The breast collar is lovely. It not only looks great, but is soft and has not shown any signs of rubbing.
I talked with the owner River, he is friendly and check inventory for me. Nice saddle
The Ronda is a beautiful saddle, and fit well on my horse. Unfortunately it did not work out perfectly for me, as I have very long femurs and a wide ribbed horse. My knees kept going over into the tooling, and wouldn't fall correctly on the flap. I need a saddle with a more forward flap for my leg.
I have three young friesians. I have two 3 yr olds and a 2 yr old. Two are baroque build and 1 is taller and longer in build. I can't afford a nice high end quality saddle for each one so I looked into DP because of the adjustable gullet. This saddle is not only beautiful but it is so comfortable. DP is great quality tack.
DP saddles are beautiful and very well made. The adjustable gullet seems sturdy and really helps with saddle fit issues. Saddle Colony’s customer service was extremely helpful as well!
The El Campo fit her beautifully and I instantly saw and felt better movement, stretch, and extension because nothing was pinching her! This is the best saddle, not to mention this saddle is extremely comfy for me. What was supposed to be my fancy show saddle has turned into my go to saddle for every ride (shows, lessons, trail rides through mountains, riding through the ocean, etc). This is the BEST saddle ever, I can't wait to have another one!
This is so PRETTY! The most comfortable saddle I have never tried before.
Oh my! This is gorgeous!
Very happy with my new saddle. It is exactly what I was expecting and it was delivered VERY fast!!
I have been using the saddle for a month. Very Comfort. Love it.
Just received this today and I am very surprised and happy with it... Much more beautiful than the pics show. I can not forget to mention how quickly I got it. Literally in a matter of a few days. Thank you for such a beautiful saddle.
Thanks for the helpful live support. Cleared my concerns and got my order shipped in 5 days.
