Horse Tack Review


Henri De Rivel
Advantage Close Contact
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Henri De Rivel
Model: Advantage Close Contact
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: This saddle was purchased from Wind and Withers Tack and Feed for $595

Likes: the HDR Advantage Close Contact is surely the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in. It is also for a VERY affordable price.

Dislikes: Doesn't darken up nicely with oil, The stirrup leather keepers are deep and pressed up against the leather, making it somewhat a task to get the leathers in.

Quality: Nice quality. Good stitching. Only thing is that one of the circular fabric things around one of the screws fell off. I don't mind really, just shows that it wasn't glued on well.

Summary: Nice saddle and just as nice as Pessoa's or Bevals, but for a more reasonable price.
