    Default silhouette saddles

    Can any of you give me feed back on these saddles. I am looking at one tomorrow and havn't heard of them before. It is a GP saddle and would be very interested to hear from anyone who has experience of them.

    I've got a silhouette GP saddle, I bought it second hand (paid 200 for it in good condition) and used it on my youngster, unfortunately she has now grown and it is no longer wide enough and I am having real probs finding a suitable saddle for her as she has a very forward girth groove coupled with a big shoulder - but thats another story.. back to the silouhette saddle, it has also been used on my partners horse to event in (before he upgraded to a devoucoux!). It is a really comfey, well-made english saddle, in my opinion.

    I've got one. Much like bfly1 I have a horse with a forward girth groove and big shoulders - a nightmare to fit. The Silhouhette GP was the only thing I could find to fit him - again bought second hand and paid around 350. It fit like a glove and I did endurance very happily in it up to 30 miles. However distances over 30 miles I was getting pressure lumps from the stirrup bars as they are resessed - as they are in most saddles, which is why for longer distances you need a specialised endurance saddle. But for normal use it was brilliant - comfy for him and for me.

    I have their showing WH saddle and I love it. Very comfortable to ride in and though a little wide on my cob, he will soon grow into it, hence the sheepskin half pad at the moment.

    Very well made and great value for money and looks great when showing. Several people I know have had them for showing and been very pleased with the quality and comfort of the brand.
    Life is short, enjoy it to the full with large hairy horses.

    They ARE VERY good saddles, seen them at BETA fairs and have even considered selling them, was very impressed with the range,(especially the cob saddles-very wide fitting),prices and after sales help, from a Saddler's point of view they are good.
