You will be so glad you chose this “classic” design. We added some modern features for that will help this more affordable design be comfortable on your goat. Some aspects that set ours apart from the other sub $200 pack goat saddles are the bomb proof construction, the heavy duty cinch and the perfectly designed britchen. This saddle, in combination with the “Stay Put Pads,” which can be found here, is the best design available in this price category. It’s very important when looking at pack goat saddles that you look for a high functioning brichen as these classic designed cross bucks will want to ride up on your goats shoulders. Without a great britchen your goat will be miserable. The second line of defense keeping your goat from getting saddle sore will be a nice thick pad and and a heavy duty cinch with the proper alignment. This saddle is made to work with all goat panniers but we recommend the Signature Sires Critter Getter Panniers with this saddle. Don’t settle for “just ok” get the best classic saddle out there!
