Southtxponygirl - 2014-03-13 1:05 PM I just bought me a Caldwell last week... I"m so tickled with it, I hav'nt got to try it out yet, because of the weather and having different things come up. But cant wait to get it on my horse... have been wanting one for a long long time so finally decided it was time. Here is mine.  

Awesome! What tree is it?

She got a Crown C.

Is that not a Caldwell lol? and, if not, don't tell her I posted on this thread lol.....

I did get the Martin crown c

It's ok, a for effort.

I looked for a Caldwell, but I was not able to try one out so I was hesitant to order one blindly. Charon was very helpful though.

I ordered a brand new with a rocket tree last year because I couldn't find that saddle with that tree used. The only thing I don't like is my seat is too deep I'm having trouble to get up when I leave the turns. I tried putting my stirrups a little higher that helped some. Going to BBR in april and see if they have anything that I could trade with not such deep seat unless they are all like that? does anyone know if they have different deepness to their seats?

No they are not all this way.  It depends on what ground seat you have on yours.  Talk to Charon at BBR and see if she can fix yours instead of trading for a different one.

 I have 2 love, love, love them. Tried about every saddle out there. Now I will only use a Caldwell. I got mine used but hoping someday to get a new one or newer looking one at least.

Ditto. they can raise or lower your ground seat very easy.   Lower ground seat wont be as deep

Had friends with Caldwell's, was told Oh just try it, didn't want to because of the things I had heard about them. Well, one of those friends had hers on my horse and I tried it. WRONG thing to do. I then was on a mission to find one, hopefully, used. Couple months later another friend had an almost brand new one posted on FB, I got it to try and I now own it!! My saddle I had I thought was awesome and even after buying my Caldwell Rocket I made a run in my old saddle and NO comparison. I love love love my Caldwell. My horse also leaves very hard and is so powerful but I stay with him in the caldwell.

...And the addiction continues!!! 
I had a friend of mine tryout my Promax a few years ago with no intention of selling it but I did not have a horse at the time to use it on.  She fell in love with it and I decided to sell it to her because they were kicking butt in it.  Fast forward a couple of years and I now need a ProMax so I had to order a new one. lol

I have 3 Caldwell's and love them.  Can hardly ride in anything else.  My only complaint is my jeans get stained from the oil.

My complaint also but I guess you can't have butter soft leather without the oil problem.

I've got a lighter oil saddle and it's pretty buttery, but it doesn't stain - thankfully!

 Mine never has either.  However, my husband's has stained his jeans, as he gets the dark oil.  I think all Caldwell's are nice, no matter what style, pattern you have.  I will always order a pro max tree too.  I know they are an investment though.  I doubt I would have spent that type of money when I was younger.  (Didn't have it anyway).  I am ordering another one for me and we are trading one of my husband's.
