I've never had a Roo-Hide, but I've also never heard of anyone regretting buying one.

I have a Roo and love it. My feet are perfectly where I need them at all times. They never get behind me but they are not forward set either. I have so much movement and it has such a close contact feel. I do not regret my purchase one bit. I would purchase another in a heartbeat if my bank account would allow.

I have one and love that thing. I'd say it's similar to a Caldwell but I like the Roohide better. It offers a closer contact and the fenders are free hanging/swinging but not sloppy. If I could find another I'd buy it.

I had a Roo. LOVED IT. Hands down the best fitting, most balanced, secure saddle ever. I only sold it because the seat was a touch big for me and the skirt was long on my mare. It rode better than any saddle I had ridden to date. I now have an Allen Ranch on his Pozzi style tree. I cannot tell you how it is compared to a Double J Pozzi but I can tell you that the Allen is way better quality and fits, rides better than any of the 5-6 different style Double J's I have had in the past.
The Roo was exactly what I needed to ride and boost my confidence post baby. It helped me sit balanced, correct, secure and get a few solid runs under my belt. The Allen feels more like a barrel saddle for lack of a better term, yet it still has then nice dished out seat and close contact feel like a cutter. I love my AR4 so much I am planning to sell it and order a new one on the same tree just custom to my liking. Hope that helps a little! Oh, if I could afford a new Roo custom to my liking, I would love to have one.

Agree with everything in here.

I will add that I own 2 Pozzi's and they were my favorite to ride in. If I could sell them both and buy another Roo, I would do it in a New York Minute. Nothing compares IMO.

I have a Pozzi that I am a big fan of, but I'm curious about the Roo's. This may be completely shallow, but I'd consider them more if they were prettier. LOL

 I have 2 Roo’s- LOVE them.  I sold one of my Caldwell‘s but I still have my other Caldwell,  they sit similar to the Caldwell but better and feel less bulky.   I have a totally different feel through the seat then any other tree out there they sit you like you’re riding bareback, legs and feet are right where they need to be

I have problems being thrown forward because of the weakness in my legs. Do you think this will help or make it worse?
