Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I ordered this saddle off Empire Saddlery for $700. I needed a wide tree saddle for my horse and the HDR was in the price range I needed.

Likes: I am in love with this saddle. It took a little while to break in the leather, but after four years of riding in it, the leather is soft and well broken in. The tree fits my extra wide appaloosa mare, and my TB as well. The seat is very comfortable and positions the rider very well. It is the perfect saddle for schooling and the show ring.

Dislikes: After four years of riding several times a day, the leather under my stirrups has worn and become discolored.

Quality: The flocking of this saddle is much softer than my previous saddler (a collegiate undergraduate). The stitching has worn out above the stirrup leathers and on the leg flaps.

Summary: I love this saddle. A GREAT quality saddle for the price. I am looking to buy and HDR dressage saddle next. I would recommend this saddle to anyone!
