Horse Tack Review


Henri de Rivel
Pro
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Henri de Rivel
Model: Pro
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I got this saddle from a local tack shop for $900 for my new thoroughbred mare.

Likes: It looks nice and the leather on the seat and knee rolls is very soft.

Dislikes: The seat fit well but the knee rolls are set way too far forward for a person of normal height. My knees hardly even touched the knee rolls. The leather underneath was not good quality at all. Also, the billets seemed a bit short. The worst part of the saddle was that after riding in it for the first time (for only 20-25 minutes) part of the stitching already started to come out.

Quality: The saddle had a regular tree but I don't like the way it fit my horse (she'd been fitted with a regular tree before and it was fine) and the knee rolls are way too far forward. Because of the stitching coming out I don't think the saddle is of good quality and it's definitely not worth the money.

Summary: I don't like the way the saddle positions you and I don't think the leather is of good quality. Overall I really don't like this saddle and I would not recommend it to anyone.
