    Default Custom Saddlery?

    Does anybody own a monte carlo? I just checked out their website and was wondering what their saddles are like. The closest one to me is in NJ, saddle fitter is Fred Taht.

    I love their dressage saddles- but don't have any experience with the jumping saddles. FWIW the dressage saddles are well made and comfortable, and I love the buffalo. My last trainer has them as a sponsor, I would get one of their saddles in a heartbeat but just can't afford custom right now!

    Thumbs up

    I have a jumping saddle Fred made me for my old horse. He was fantastic and made the saddle exactly as I wanted it. Let me try models on my horse ect. I would recommend Fred/Custom Saddlery 100%!!

    Ditto . I have a Custom Saddlery jumping saddle which was custom fitted to my horse. I LOVE the saddle, and think it is worth every penny. It's about five or six years old now, and wearing beautifully . Cannot remember what the model was called, but it looks very much like the Monte Carlo.
    It is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

    another thumbs up for Fred and custom saddlery! I have both a jumping saddle and a dressage saddle from their "off the rack" stock that they custom fit to your horse and love them both. Fred was just out to our barn to check all the fits for the year!
