Purchase: I bought this saddle at Summer Side Tack. I paid $1,700 which is not the price now - the price at other stores was $1,300. The saddle is a: Henri de Rivel, Rivella Close Contact Saddle. I bought the saddle because the store owner recommended this saddle because it has very high quality leather and would last a long time. I also bought it because of the way it looked (which is very pretty) and because it was affordable.

Likes: This saddle is very comfortable after being broken in (which did not take very long). It is very easy to keep clean and is a really nice looking saddle, I get many complements on it. The deeper seat is very nice to have; it makes flat work and jumping comfortable.

Dislikes: The flaps are a little bit long for my legs, but it does say that in many descriptions.

Quality: The leather is soft and pliable, very comfortable. It is a very flashy saddle (it looks a lot better than in the pictures). The leather is made in France and the saddle is made in Argentina.

Summary: The saddle is worth it! I would recommend this saddle to anyone who wants a beautiful, comfortable saddle at an affordable price.
