    No one? I ask because I've been looking for a new saddle, and someone at my barn is selling hers. The only thing I remember about them is that another riders squeaked...

    I've had one for years and I love it. Has held up well and is super comfortable. Seems to fit most horses, as well.

    I have one and LOVE it. i have had mine for about 5 years and it's held up great.

    I had a very hard time finding a saddle that fit me and my horse. This saddle felt great and is very comfortable.

    Everyone that rides in it compliements the comfort and stickyness!

    Very nice quality leather & workmanship - we'd own it if it had fit the horse ...

    it was also too big for the rider but she liked it enough to lie

    I have never ridden in one of their saddles, but the customer service of the company is impeccable.

    Same factory as childeric. Bit less on the price tag I believe.

    I know Carmen at Baker's Saddlery in Ontario has a few that he'd get rid of a little cheaper- they've been sitting around- this guy literally has hundreds of saddles- used and new.

    Fabulous saddle and great customer service.

    If the saddle fits you and you like it, snap it up! You won't be sorry.

    I rode in one, once, several years ago. I still remember now, how much I loved it way back then... my position was better, it was so comfortable, and it was beautiful. Big thumbs up for L'Apogee saddles

    I liked mine a lot (for me).

    The model I had just didn't fit anything in our barn particularly well. It was a medium tree and I think it ran pretty wide - I even contacted the company to double check it wasn't a wide tree. I liked the saddle so much that I tried to make it work for about 6 months with various different pads - couldn't get it to stop rocking no matter the pad combo, just too darn wide. So sold it for a medium tree Amerigo...which fit like a glove.

    I just tried it today for the first time and I have to say, I am not sure about the saddle... I dont know if maybe its the fit on me that I dont like or the constant "breathing" the saddle does from every movement... Does anyone elses L'apogee "breath" loudly? And if so, is there any way to fix that??
