    Default Shires saddles?

    Anybody know anything about Shires saddles? One of the local tack shops have started carrying them. I found a few reviews from people across the pond, and they seemed to like them for the price. Anybody have any hands on experience with the brand?

    Very entry level quality. you can do much better with a used saddle

    I bought a shires leadline saddle recently. it's treeless and for the price, the quality is pretty good. it definitely does the job for giving small children something to sit on. however, the quality of their "real" saddles is probably lacking.
