AMAZING 5 I've had this saddle for my quenning/rodeo/reining QH gelding for 8 years now. It's SO comfortable for me and the hrose. No slipping. It's beautiful. WORTH THE MONEY in the long run because this saddle will last you 40+ years.
Pros:None
Cons:took a few months to brake into

Great saddle! 5 Bought this for my teenage granddaughter's mare who is very short-backed, but high withered. Just the right length, and the full QH bars are a perfect fit. Tried many other saddles before buying this one from HorseSaddleShop, and none fit as well as this one. Had lots of help from the customer service rep. Good company to deal with. Actually purchased another Crates ladies reiner with round skirts at the same time in case the first one didn't work we could have used it on other horses\. It's an excellent saddle too, but isn't a close contact like the other one. Other than that, it's a terrific saddle as well.

Wonderfully Comfortable Saddle 5 This saddle is fantastic! I have a back issue that makes it difficult to open my right hip up. This was the first saddle that immediately put me in the correct seat position without causing stress and strain on my hip. My daughter who rides Dressage is helping to train my horse and also loves this saddle - she even uses it occasionally on her horse. It is lightweight without compromising on quality and really beautiful.

Amazing Saddle 5 I got this saddle as a gift for my QH reining horse. Let me just say I LOVE IT. And I am very picky when it comes to saddle- but listen to me when i say that this saddle is the best. It is beautiful, amazing quality, huge range of holes on fenders here is lots of space to punch some in, SO comfortable I actually did a 30 mile endurance ride in it, even though that is not what this saddle is for- just showing how great it is, the tooling is perfect- not too fancy but still adds beauty, looks classy and expensive... I could go on and on. I have used it for teaching lessons, reining shows, trail rides, and rodeo queening competitions. This is the thing... If you want a saddle that is comfortable for your horse and you- you've got to pay money. You get what you pay for. Do not go and buy a cheap saddle... It won't hold up, and will hurt your horses back which can lead to major problems- invest in an expensive nice saddle! ... If you're looking for a reining- show- queening saddle - and you know your horses gullet size etc- don't hesitate to BUY THIS ONE.

I just love my saddle! 5 I did my homework and shopped for many months for the perfect saddle for myself and my horse. I chose the Crates because of its reputation for quality and workmanship. I have not been disappointed! My saddle has been everything I had hoped for.

Excellent saddle at a great price! 5 I love this saddle because it is not only beautifully tooled and designed, it is really comfortable and fit out horse well. We use it for pleasure as well as in the show ring. Unlike many western saddles that all you can feel is a mountain of leather, you can really get your legs on your horse with this one. The close contact is ideal for applying correct leg aids for lateral and bending exercises.

Wonderful Saddle! 5 I shopped for saddles for months before I finally decided on the Crates 4517. I was drawn to it because of the shorter skirts and the lighter weight. My horse is petite and I wanted a saddle that did not overwhelm her. I love the tooling and details, and it looks so beautiful on my mare. The very day I got the saddle I took it to a show and it made the whole experience a dream. The saddle was comfortable and it made a real difference in my mare's performance. I highly recommend this saddle for those who want a beautiful piece of equipment that performs exceedingly well.

Love,love,love! 5 Boy do I Love this saddle, as do both my trainers. They always want to show me something on my horse just so they can sit in it, and now they both want one! I use this as an all purpose saddle for gaming, equitation, cows and trail. It is so comfortable I can sit all day in it. I have a 16 hand, high withered quarter horse who is more lanky than stocky and it fits him like a dream! I thought he was full quarter horse bars but the tree on this semi is what he needed because of the way it opens up. I had been riding in circle y, which I also love, but this one beats them! Highly recommend. No break in period either.

Love this saddle! 100% happy. 5 My husband gave me this saddle for Christmas. He was uneasy about online ordering a saddle but chose to trust the Crates name and take a chance on the store. Service was excellent. It arrived early with free shipping and is exactly the way it is presented to be. It fits me and my horse. It is a very pretty, well made saddle. Thick leather, stainless steel rings, came with a quality latigo. I have no cons to write! None.

Great arena saddle! 5 Very beautiful and comfortable saddle for arena work. Somewhat difficult to ride posting trot in it so I use another saddle for trail riding. Ladies' cut works fine for me, but not all ladies like it hose who have more weight in the bottom and thighs don't\. Horse is very comfortable, too!

Definitely recommend 5 I had been trying to find a saddle for my wide QH cross.....tried a Circle Y wide....way too small, a Tucker wide also too tight....but this saddle has a nice flare that fits my guy well. The leather is softer than most others I've tried. The seat puts me in a very nice position and the fenders put my legs in good alignment.I have ridden in many name brand saddles and this is my favorite so far.....

Lovely saddle 5 I bought this saddle off the website and so had to rely on the picture and the description. I have to say that I was very impressed when I opened the box. The saddle is beautiful, the color is closer to the light color on the stirrup in the pic. Three of my friends want one now that they've seen mine. My horse is quite short in the back so the 26" skirts are great!
