And a lthough I immediately followed all instructions and oiled it well, there are water marks where the seat meets the skirt. This is not visible when you are sitting in it and does not in any way affect the use or integrity of the saddle. It is just a blemish. This saddle has the EZ ride endurance trail stirrups, leather ties for saddle bags, slickers, etc and beautiful Texas Star conchos.
It has a suspended seat which means you don't sit on the hard tree. See Double Creek Saddlery website for more into on this unique set up. Here is part of the description from the website. The Old Timer saddle is an extremely comfortable deep pocket seat saddle.It is built on a Full QH tree, with a Wade Fork pommel and a high cantle (+7) which provides extra security for serious trail riders. It is built on the suspended seat which offers exceptional. Riders are securely positioned in this saddle in a posture that allows a natural balanced legs--straight down from the hips position. The western fenders on this saddle are loosely hung, allowing the rider to position their legs in whatever position they need. The high pommel allows for a high-withered horse. This saddle has a very deep seat. So, if you ride in a 16 " western, that is like Henry's 17", but then go to an 18 on this saddle because its a deep seat. This is what the website says. I ride in a 16+ western saddle and this one fits me great. The item "Henry Miller Double Creek Saddlery Old Timer Western Trail Saddle" is in sale since Monday, August 08, 2016.
