The leather is soft and has no signs of significant wear even though it is older than 10 years.It fits a variety of horses as well. The saddle is perfect for schooling and even alittle jumping if interested. I do wish the suede was in better condition (it has worn suede where the legs rests) but it can't be seen when riding. I even brought it into a tack restoration shop and he said it was in great condition considering it's age. Eventually, I will probably get the knee rolls replaced because he quoted me 75.00 so it's definitely worth it. The saddle usually retails anywhere from 300-450.00 so it's a good deal. On horseclicks the saddle was listed for 350. I highly recommend this saddle!
I hope you find what you are looking for :)
I just received mine the other day.
I agree with you, it is wonderful! It fits my Appy mare and my Quarter Horse. I bought it for $200.
