I officially welcome you to Blue Ridge Saddle Reviews brought to you by Own the Horse.
I knew long ago that the Blue Ridge saddles were produced in Argentina. Most of the older saddles made had been known to last ages with some dating back to the 19’0s.
However, newer models appear to be cheaply made. I recommend going for older models as they hold up extremely well and the leather is decent and the tree is still sound.
Purchasing them on eBay is cheaper and the way to go.

Like most of the new saddles, the leather was actually stiff and the stirrups leather stretched way too unevenly.
The horn wasn’t too comfortable to hold or very smooth either although it will hold you in.
It is better for stockier horses. It is not as comfortable for horses that use narrow saddles.
