Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: Bought on ebay for $400. GREAT DEAL for sure! Bought because my old HDR finally had flocked-panel issues after YEARS AND YEARS of use. Bought this model because I rode in a friend's and liked it.
Likes: Fantastic leather, LOVE the stirrup bar placement...I've always had a problem keeping my leg back (it's generally too forward) and this saddle helps. (changing saddle sizes helped too...my upper leg is long, so I switched to a 17") Works great on flat, over fences, and for endurance.
Dislikes: Stains more easily, but this one is still somewhat new and not "oiled up" quite yet.
Quality: Excellent quality, very soft and smooth and very nice, squishy seat and knee rolls.
Summary: Excellent saddle for the money, you can't go wrong with this purchase!
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
