Did I get a good deal?

A little late now I guess, but I recently purchased an HDR saddle and girth for $600 total.

They are in like-new condition (when I say this, I literally mean like-new, maybe 5 rides total).

Here is a picture of the saddle I received:

HDR Rivella Competition (Foam) French Leather English Saddle

After looking at this link, I am pretty sure I know the answer to my own question...but I will post this anyway because I am excited and LOVE this saddle!!

The saddle is very pretty and look really comfy. From the link and the retail price I think that you found a great saddle for the money you paid. 600 $ for that saddle and girth is a great deal. Congrats.

Thanks so much!

And FYI, it is SUPER comfy. By far the best saddle I have ridden in. I will eventually need to buy the blocks for it (the previous owner removed them since she just did flatwork) since I will be Eventing, but that wont be for another year at least.

I would definitely recommend this saddle!

I really love those saddles with soft knee rolls. Not the ones with knee rolls that are very rigid/stiff and hard. I think that this makes the saddle a lot more comfier. And this saddle seems to have very nice knee rolls.

I'm happy that you found your perfect saddle. Hope that the horse is happier too.

Thanks so much! I AM very lucky. I bought the horse and the saddle/girth from the same owner. She is a super nice lady and definitely wanted her horse/tack to go to a good home and be appreciated
