Model: HDR Pro A/O (View all HDR Pro A/O reviews)

Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I got this saddle 3 years ago at a local tack shop for $625 on sale. It retails for 850.

Likes: I like how it fit every horse i used it on, from a 12.1 pony to a 16.3 Thoroughbred. It also is easy to clean and doesn't dark much when oiled.

Dislikes: I dislike how the color rubs easily, especially because of the smooth leather it has. It also has massive knee rolls that made me feel like my leg wasn't in the right position. It also has a very long stiff flap.

Quality: Nice oak bark color, fits well, and has a good tree

Summary: This is a good saddle, but I do not recommend it for a serious equitation rider, or anyone who likes a very close contact saddle.
