When I ride my friends Thoroughbred gelding with her when we go on trail rides at her place, I ride in a nylon saddle just like the one pictured. I'm sorry to say that I can't stand it... it's comfortable and all, but I just don't like it. I much prefer the leather saddles with their heaviness and all... Just personal preference, I guess. My friend on the other hand really likes the nylon saddle since it's so much lighter and her horses are tall and it's kinda hard for her to throw the saddle up over their back.
I guess I just prefer the squeak and stiffness and the smell of the leather... Lol.
