eh... let me see if i can find a picture of the one i rode in. the leather was nice and it was a decent intro level saddle as far as quality/price goes but i found it put me into more of a chair seat than it should and i without fail hit my pubic bone on the pommel. NO FUN. it was also more of a flat shape through the seat/panels/tree and so didn't fit my horse well at all. again - these are all personal experience kind of things and everyone is different so it could end up being perfect for you - i just wasn't a fan.
