I need your opinion on which one of these you would rather have.  I want a quality saddle that will fit a wide variety of horses.

Coats if I had to pick between the two.

And why would you pick the Coats?  Any particular reason?

I enjoyed my Coats while I owned one. I think the Jeff Smith are heavy.

100% coats.  Jeff's saddles have too much twist to the tree.  Coats is a flatter tree that will fit a bigger majority of horses.

I like the Jeff Smiths saddles too, but the Coats are just a much better fitting saddle if you have a stocky cow bred horse, I love how they sit down on the horse not perched and if you have one with the dropped rigging its even a better fit. Its just a better close contact saddle I feel..

I had both, if you're going for saddle fit go with the Coats.The Jeff Smith wide didn't fit my cow horse bred mare, it wasn't wide enough.  I did like how the Jeff Smith fit me, it sat deeper than the Coats one did. They both are good saddles, if you are able to try one out I would.

I have two Coats with dropped rigging. They fit everything from the 15.2 appendix to the 14 cutter to the 14.3 tank without withers.

I have a Coats and have never had a Jeff Smith to compare.  I like my Coats and it seems to fit different horses.  I talked to Larry Coats when I was buying it and he explained the difference between the handmade Coats and the Lazy L saddles.  He told me that they are similar but that the handmade saddles will have a more comfortable seat.  I saved money and bought the Lazy L.  I am sure that the handmade saddles are much better, but the Lazy L fit my price range.

I went with a Coats.  Many have said I will not be disappointed, so we shall see.  Thank you for all the opinions.  Have any of you tried his balance pads by chance?
