Purchase: I got my Prestige Hunter Classic on eBay for $1000! It was only 3 years old and showed minimal wear.
Likes: I absolutely love that it has calfskin flaps. It glues your legs into position. The balloon flaps are very squishy and also helped secure my leg. I liked the foam filled panels. I also liked how the tree was adjustable.
Dislikes: The only thing I disliked was that the calfskin marked up easily. Although when I cleaned it all of the marks disappeared. I got scared once when I oiled it and it came out all blotchy, but then after a day the leather went to a nice even color that was a shade darker. It made it look like new and my trainer thought I had bought a new saddle! So don't hesitate to oil it as much as you want!
Quality: Wonderful quality, no stitching issues after lots of use.
Summary: This saddle was the softest leather out of all the saddles I tried (devoucoux, butet, antares), which surprised me because of the cheap price. I have since outgrown this saddle and bought a Prestige Jumper R and I am disappointed with the leather compared to the hunter classic. I also used this saddle for eventing and it suited me perfectly!
