I love this saddle so much! I have used it for years! Other people talk about color rubbing off but mine never did at the beginning. I use the HDR Advantage cinch, leathers, ans HDR Pro bridle and together they are stunning in the show ring! I would definitely recommend this collection of Henri De Rivel tack!

I have had this saddle for a little over 3 months and it is amazing! i have gotten so many compliments on it; a friend of mine who has been riding her whole life and knows quite a lot about tack and horses in general, (not knowing the brand) said, as soon as she saw it, that it was a beautiful saddle and looked very nice! The price is a steal. I bought it for $625 on here in early march (must have been on sale) and by just looking at it you would not think it was only 6 or 700 dollars. I looked at pricier saddles but kept coming back to this one. The leather is beautiful and has been easy to take care of. It It even survived my horse tripping and falling completely down and over (with me on it) in the arena and rolling around with the saddle (not fun). Except for a small scratch from the buckle on the stirrup leathers under the flap, when i looked at it afterwards it most definitely did not look like anything had happened! It also broke in within 2 or 3 rides, at most. I have a feeling this saddle will last me a long time! My friend's trainer has had this saddle for at least 15 years and originally bought it just for schooling and now uses it for shows and rarely uses her show saddle! I highly recommend this saddle to anyone!

I had some doubts on this saddle when I ordered it but then I got it and I was amazed! it didn't make my horse sore or my butt. The tree runs a little smaller though.

I just recieved this saddle today as a gift, and I was surprised by the leather quality. Much better than anything I've had in the past.. the leather on the knee rolls is to die for xD

I love this saddle it's really nice it is my first saddle. I have been riding for about 4 years nice and this is the nicest saddle I have ever ridding in. If you are getting one do NOT buy a saddle cover fot it. It comes with a very nice complementary saddle cover.
I LOVE THIS SADDLE!!!!!!

Like the title said this is the best saddle you can own. It is high quality, beautiful, easy to break in, flashy, easy to clean, very durable, and very comfortable for you and more importantly your horse. My horse started jumping a foot higher (5 foot full oxers) while wearing this saddle. It has a very comfortable seat that encourages the correct seat position, but it also points out where you are making your faults. It is a forgiving saddle, but not too forgiving. It is well suited to be a schooling saddle and a show saddle at the same time, as it doesn't show signs of wear at all. I've had mine for 6 years and I don't need to have a second schooling saddle or a show saddle, this one does it all. This is the best saddle you could ever get. Personally I like this close contact saddle better than the one in the pro series. If you are looking for a multi purpose, beautiful, durable, affordable, and comfy saddle I would reccomend this one to you.

I love this saddle!!! It is the greatest. Very comfertable to ride in and is easy to sit to. Better yet it does not give my horse back aches. I found that he is easier to controll and ride when I use this saddle. It is the best for jumping considering I use it to jump up to four foot and higher. Before I rode in this saddle my horse would stop at the fences because my old saddle would rube up against his shoulders and give him saddle sours. This saddle fits him perfectly and now he jumps every fence in his path!!! This saddle is flashy enough to be in the hunters ring. Will get your equitation better to. Easy to ride in, great quality. Mine still shines like new. It is just the perfect saddle.

I did not get this saddle from SLT. I thought I would say that it is horribly off balence. The color rubbed off so easily and after 3 rides the leathers rubbed the flap really badly. I would not recommend this saddle. I traded it in for a wonderful Collegiate Convertable Integrity.

This saddle is perfect for my 12 yeear old duaghter in hunting and flatclasses. It fits her Arab nicly and he listens better with this saddle then his older two that we had. I would so recomend this saddle for any young rider doing hunter and going higher to jumping.

The quality of the leather in this saddle is wonderful, workmanship is equally impressive. The seat however is horribly off balance. It puts the rider way too far behind the motion. Not what I would suggest.

This is a great saddle. Great Quality, and it features comfy knee pads as well as helpful hind blocks for going over big jumps. Very comfortable. Fits everything from extra wide pnoies and Morgans and QHs to med wide Throughbreds, Warmbloods, and everything in between. The wide tree. Overall a great saddle at a great price. Very well made.
