Testimonials & Reviews


I love my saddle!  Thank you so very much!  It’s perfect. It is definitely lighter weight than my old one. I love the black painted wood and the girth strap holder. My old one doesn’t have one of those. It’s really sharp looking! You have such a consistent and high quality product. I think it was about 18 years ago that tim bought my first Haggis saddle.  I’ve used year round ever since and I couldn’t even think about using a different kind of saddle. Thanks again!! - Sharon Perschke

Thank you! Just did 5, long mile days, riding in CO mountains and it was great. Both Choco and I were comfortable whether gaiting or technical climbing. Not much to adjust to...and even exposed buckle on leathers didn't chaff my bare legs when I rode in shorts. Their position was perfect.

I also want to comment on the slick seat. While many folks may believe a padded seat is inherently more comfortable I recommend you try a slick seat.  It is extremely comfortable. I rode daily 4-6 hours a day for 2 weeks straight and never experienced any discomfort or fatigue. 

There are many great saddles makers out there. I’ve tried many of them over the years and ultimately decided on Haggis. I’m very happy with this decision. If you are considering a new trooper style saddle I encourage you to consider Haggis Saddles.

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been breaking in a new saddle from Haggis Saddles by Jeff Haggis. I love it. 

I use my saddle for field trialing. I typically load it up with collars, roading harness, water, saddle bags, etc. The design is super smart. Obviously, the design contains decades of feedback and lessons learned from field trialers. 

Thank you so much for working with me on the custom work for this new saddle! I've had the saddle for two months now, and it's really working out great! The suede overlay on the slick seat is just what I needed for the mountainous trail riding that we do here in The Ozarks. The Rocky Mountain Tree fits my Fox Trotters really nicely, with no dry spots around the withers after hard riding. Field Trial season is just around the corner, and I'm looking forward to putting some big miles on the saddle this fall. It's a beautiful piece of functional art. A quality saddle that I'm proud to own. Thank you again!
