REAL CUSTOMER FEEDBACK   Dear riders_choice, Oh I just love this saddle & it came on my birthday today. I sat in the saddle to check out the comfort first. It is awesome to sit in with the soft leather with the cushion padding in the seat. Then I tried the saddle on the horse to see if the saddle would lift in the rear like my other saddles. Well, it did a little, but I moved the cinch straps back to the second front ring on both sides and cinched it down. No more lift in the rear. I can't wait to try it out this weekend. This has convinced me in getting 2 more saddles. Then I will have to sell my other 2 Billy Cook saddles. This saddle fits perfect and sitting in the saddle is a comfort that is unbelieveably awesome. You will see more of me very soon. I'm going to have my daughter sit in it then switch over to her Billy Cook show saddle. I'm sure she will ask for her own too.I wanted to share in my excitement about your saddle. I will proudly show it off & sending folks your way to purchase one. Thanks, Barb   I have been into horses for 40yrs. Shown at world
and congress. Never had anything but TexTan and Big Horn. This saddles far exceeded my expectations. It is much better made than the others. Better than Billy Cook. Great solid well made saddle. Thanks. Will probably purchase another in the near future..Thanks Lorraine
Dear Jerry, I wanted to tell you what an amazing job Riders Choice did creating my custom saddle. I know that I presented you with a large number of goals both in design and with my hard to fit gelding. Your customer service really shined as you rose to meet every challenge. We have been fraught with rain this past week, which has been like waiting to open the Christmas present that is waiting under the tree. I finally had some sunny days, and I really road tested my saddle and saddle pad. We did several 3+ hour trail rides, and really came back with a evenly wet saddle pad. After going up and down hills, over water, jumping several felled trees and riding through all 4 gaits, I have to say that this is the most comfortable saddle for both my horse and I - EVER! I was amazed that I never had that "I gotta get my feet out of these stirrups for a stretch" feeling. The free swinging fenders really took the pressure off my knees and ankles. The thick padding used for the memory foam seat also made things supremely comfortable, all through the ride. The Bear Traps on the saddle really locked me in during a fast gallop down a long road. At 48, I felt like I had a seat as balanced as when I was 17. Your materials are first class. Your customer service was above and beyond my expectations. All tolled, your price was amazing and I couldn't be happier. Thank you for everything. I can't stop raving about your company! Very Sincerely, Carol Hall
Hi Jerry good to here from you again. Tell your customers that this G.W. Crate saddle is
the best saddle that i have ever bought and it is a year old and still looks
and feels brand new. I am 48 years old today [yes its my birthday]and it
looks like this saddle will be the last one i will ever need to buy. I will
wear out before it does. Lots of compliments from a lot of
cow-boys&cow-girls. Just a great- handmade cowboy saddle. Brad
Hey Jerry and all the wonderful people at Riders Choice,
I got my saddle today, and I cried when I opened the box. It is a piece of art, and I almost feel bad touching it! I have NEVER seen such a beautiful, and beautifully made saddle. I have a friend who just got The flex-lite Topeka (the one mine is modeled after) and she wanted to trade! NO WAY! She couldn't believe the price that I paid for it. It is honestly the most beautiful thing I own, and my favorite purchase as well. :) (Even OVER my truck!) My friend is actually going to see what she can get for her saddle, and I'll be sure to send her your way.That being said, it fits my hard-to-fit gelding PERFECTLY, and it fits me the same. I could NOT be happier with it. Can't say enough good about it. I am in love with my saddle. Was WELL worth the wait... And thank you for getting it out so quickly, I get to go on that trail ride with some new friends. I will ALWAYS go to your company FIRST for any of my saddle needs. I don't even have to say anything about wondering if it will last a long time... I'm pretty sure it's going to live longer than I do.
Thank you SO much for EVERYTHING!
Sierra
(P.S. You can use this as a testimonial on your listings if you wish, but I just wanted to tell you how HAPPY I am!
Give everyone a big thanks for me!)

G'day Jerry, My new Master Series. G.W.Crate Flex Lite Trail Saddle arrived today. Another beautiful saddle is now mounted next to my first G.W.

The leather and craftsmanship of both these saddles takes my breath away. Thank you also for all your prompt correspondence and for an easy, hassle free deal. I'll use the pocket book and pen you sent with the saddle- they always come in handy around here. Take care and thank you. Regards Leona from Australia.
