Pessoa or HDR?

Hey there,
I'm looking at buying a used saddle, and there are a few at my local tack store, where I can take a saddle on trial.
There are two saddles that I'm looking at buying, one is a Pessoa Rodrigo Close Contact, and the other is an HDR Pro Close Contact. The Pessoa is not in great shape.
I'm wondering which one I should try.

I love my HDR, same one you're trying out..

Memory foam flocking, and it's SO nice to jump in. I can ride with short stirrups easily in that saddle.
Only thing I can complain about is that it is SENSITIVE. I had sand on my glove and I wiped the seat off before I sat down and it scratched the saddle a bit. The scratches are easily fixed with some leather conditioner. It's really nice, I love mine

My friend has a Pessoa, it's well worn, and it's super comfy. Though I like my HDR better

Great thanks! I've heard some good things about them so I think I'll probably try that one.

If it's possible for you to try both, you definitely should!
