Perfect saddle for training, trail, and show!

Excellent quality and comfort for both me and my young horse, with the adjustability of the gullet making it perfect for her as she grows and adds topline. This is my second DP Saddlery saddle and it won't be my last. Great customer service from Saddle Colony made it a very easy purchase.
