Purchase: I bought my Nice saddle from a friend for $250 used. It was still in great condition and I know it must be worth more than that because it was made in Nice, France. The leather is very supple and is havana in color. It has knee blocks and air-flo knee pads.
Likes: I LOVE everything about this saddle. The knee blocks give wonderful support when jumping. The seat is very soft and comfortable for trails. I also love using it for flat work and have used it in a couple of shows too. The leather breaks in fast and takes oil nicely.
Dislikes: There isn't anything that I do not like about this saddle, except that I can't use it where I ride now. The instructor only allows us to use close contact saddles so I can no longer use it but will still keep it for trails.
Quality: The construction and quality of this saddle is great. The leather is really soft and it fits the horses I am riding really well. It has a regular tree and it fits perfectly.
Summary: Overall, I would recommend a Nice saddle to anyone for their durability, soft, supple leather, and a really comfortable ride!
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
