REAL CUSTOMER FEEDBACK Hi, my name is Sandra and I just recently purchased a barrel saddle from you. I “won” the saddle on the 23rd of February and so with the shipping saying that I could expect it in 10 to 17 days and I received it in only 7 days I was SUPER stoked, that meant that I could go riding that weekend. I just wanted to say how happy I am with how fast I received the saddle. I am also so happy with the quality and the look of it; I have so far only received oooo’s and ahhhh’s. It was so similar to the picture that was advertised and that made me quite happy because as soon as I saw it I fell in love with it. My first ride in it was fantastic. So awesome that I had to call my dad right away after and tell him all about it lol. It is very light weight and fit me and my horse like a glove. It was very easy to adjust and make it fit just perfect. I was quite hesitant in buying a saddle online for obvious reasons but you and your company has made it an absolutely wonderful and easy experience. I do hope that I have this saddle for a long time and once I am in need of a new one or another one, I will not even think twice of where I will get it from, you are the only ones on my list from now on and I will be sharing this with every one that I know. I just want to say thank you again for this beautiful saddle and making this process a breeze :) Sandra Loerchner 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!
(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!)
I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know that back in March I purchased a roughout barrel saddle for my daughter and gave it to her for a combination Easter/Birthday (she became a teen) present and she used it very hard all summer. She rides two horses and switches saddles all day due to different events and also because after riding the Rider's Choice saddle, she won't ride anything else. She said she felt very comfortable in it on the speed events and the roughout gave her added security she needed to push herself and her horses into that next gear. She ended up winning two All-Around Championship buckles this summer and gives your saddle some of the credit!! Thanks for making such great saddles.
|Jerry, Hey it is Carra from N.C. You did the three trophy saddles for me with the TLC on them. I have to say, sorry I took so long to get back with you. I LOVED them, the saddles were the best ever. I hope to need three saddles every year if we keep up the same amount of interest in the gaming shows. I will be calling on you and your crew to get them again. I just wanted to let you know how wonderful they were, I have pictures of the awards ceremony with the saddles in them if you need for your website at all. Carra Lane |
