I recently bought a Henri De' Rivel competition synthetic all purpose saddle. So far I love it. Anyone else have an opinion on these? I was also wondering how well the soft suede material holds up wet. Should I get a cover to use if it is raining while i'm out or do they make such things? I am new to the saddle thing haha since I have no horse but I'm leasing now. Any tips on keeping it nice as long as possible? Thanks!
