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.
