All our gaited horse saddles come with our 14 day trial and expert fitting support! Custom Legacy saddles builds are currently 10-12 weeks.
All our saddles come with our 14 day trial and expert fitting support! The best trail saddle on the market (at least we are convinced so!). The Phoenix Rising Legacy Saddle is built with the same flexible tree, leather suspended ground seat, and Supracor padding under the saddle, in the seat and stirrups as the Imus 4-Beat Saddle. We've made some stylistic changes, including a square skirt for a traditional western saddle look. These saddles work beautifully for all horse types, gaited and non-gaited. Comfort and the ability to move unimpeded under saddle are important for every horse, no matter how it moves.

I've been searching for three years to find a saddle that fits my Thoroughbred mare. I contacted Phoenix Rising by email. They were very professional and helpful. I sent them pictures and received the recommended size. I received the saddle in March 2020. It is beautiful and it fits her so well that she is moving like a dream. The same saddle also fits my other horses too! It is super comfortable on long trial rides. Best saddle on the market, in my opinion.
This is my 3rd saddle purchase from Phoenix Rising Saddles, the first one in the Legacy style. They are all wonderful with excellent craftsmanship. The Legacy was purchased as used but there is not a blemish on it, it is beautiful and comfortable for both me and my horse!
love my new legacy saddle. It fits my horse and me and I'm telling everyone I know about it! The craftsmanship is superb and I would expect to pay much more for the quality of this saddle. Outstanding!
