I'll add pics and comments from our wonderful customers here

This saddle has seriously changed our lives and given me my horse back - but better. 2 years out of the saddle back for the first time the past few weeks and we just had a lovely hack around the lake with a hand gallop (shhh don’t tell Sky he’s slow right now lol - he’s also 20 years old!!!) reins in one hand, no gloves and no blisters for the first time in the 16 years we’ve been together. And we end with him turning himself back out calmly and quietly and completely content. I can’t wait to see where the next few months of rides and conditioning takes us!! Thank you so much Total Saddle Fit for the amazing girth and slim leathers and BUA Saddles & Badlands Equine for making such amazing products that gave me my horse back! CJ


BUA saddle in action on four very different horses! Holsteiner,
Quarter Horse, and two OTTBs!! It's been very popular at
our barn.

Beth's review at Eventing Nation

The day after the ride my horse's back looked great ... the saddle was one less thing he had to think about.

The saddle overall is a superb piece of engineering. The port Lewis impression pad testing ... clearly outlined this, as the cantilever design of the saddle properly distributed my weight over his back. 

... the GP flaps are great for endurance. Nice thigh blocks that are out of your way unless you need them, like on hills, or in battle, or attacking demon bogs.

Show pics coming when Marguerite competes in her personal saddle!

I have had horses for over 50 years, and in those years I have probably had 20 saddles (at least), western, english, treed, and treeless.  I have never had one that impacted my riding, my horse and my comfort level as much as this saddle.  I had another hard lesson today and my instructor said that she had never seen me ride better and that Magic looked like a million bucks. And the best thing... I had a 45 minute truck ride home and usually after a lesson like that followed by a long truck ride I would be crippled when I try to move around after I get back to the barn.  After riding in this saddle there is very little pain.  My back is tired but I don’t have the pain I used to have all the time.  And, Magic’s back feels great.  I always do some body work on him after a lesson and his back feels great plus he feels good the next few days as well.  In just the time that I have had this demo saddle his back has started muscling up.   So, I am thrilled and certainly looking forward to my own. 

My demo has been a huge success.  I was finally able to ride my OTTB without causing her any pain.  About 10 months ago, this mare fell over her stall wall and landed flat on her back.  She had some nail puncture wounds and several large bruises all over her back.  After a couple of months for healing and thousands of dollars in vet and chiropractor bills, I still could not ride her without hurting her. [With the Bua, not only did she ride without pain, we were able to trot, canter, and even handle gallop a little bit.  I diligently checked her over a couple of days after the first ride and she had no tender spots and no signs of back pain.    I feel like I have finally got my girl back thanks to this wonderful saddle.
