I wanted to let you know that my saddle was delivered on Saturday, 5/7. I CANNOT believe how fast it was from the time I ordered it, to when it showed up!
The quality of this saddle seems to be everything that I expected and hoped for.
I've done two rides in it this weekend already. The first was a short, casual ride to get the feel for it and to see how Phil responded. The second was a longer trail ride, which included going up a good size hill that has a cell phone tower on top.
also have the HAH pad on as well to help with the muscle atrophy he has on his topline.
Appreciate all your help with this! LOVE LOVE LOVE my saddle SO MUCH!

It is absolutely gorgeous! Love it!!!
I did fit to my Dixie and everything seemed to check out!! Of course she’d go and throw a shoe the same day her saddle was delivered.
I love my Imus Saddles!!! This is my 3rd! I have one for each of my horses!!
THOROUGHLY ENJOYING MY SADDLE
Just wanted to give you an update, I have around a thousand hours in my saddle still looks brand new I have had a lot to free time to ride due to covid... fits my mare very well though her being under weight when I first got her to fit and healthy always a very even sweet mark at the end, did need to add a bit of padding to the girth strap but would have with her under any saddle I'm sure. (received via email 11/8)
I’m amazed at how comfortable I am during the rides. My seat #1! After taking a hard fall 2 months ago and breaking my collarbone, twisting my ankle, broken toe and wratching my knee… with my old Circle Y western saddle I would feel pain in my ankle and knee late during the ride and dismounting. Not having this issue at all with my Imus saddle. Now for my horse, Gus…. He seems more comfortable as well and although it’s difficult to explain I feel he is able to move more freely. I've been hacked and locked out of my social medias or I would be tagging and promoting your saddle ;) !!! Going on a 10 mile trail tomorrow so that will be the true test ;). "
Update: Had a great weekend ride! I don’t think you’ll be seeing this saddle again in your warehouse !!!!!!!!!!!
