HDR Saddle?

I found a really good deal on a HDR saddle thats in great condition! It's only been used for about 2 years and only during show season. I'm not exactly sure the model (i will ask tomorrow) possibly the advantage but I am not sure, it was bought 5 years ago. It's 350$ and includes saddle, cover, sturrips, leathers, saddle stand, girth, saddle pad, and show pad, and some other horse things. I'm pretty sure I am going to purchase it. I just wanted some feed back on what others thought about the saddle and if you think this would be a good deal. Thanks!

I own two saddles. i have and HDR synthetic all purpose saddle and also a marcel toullose prima saddle. the thing with the HDRs that i have noticed is they pitch you forward for some reason. i have ridden in one other one that was a full leather saddle and it did the same thing. and the leather on some of them is almost like a painted on leather. so it gets scratched and usually you cant buff it out. and i do like my HDR synthetic one (except for the pitching you forward thing) cause i can beat the crap out of it and its still in good contition. its usually the schooling saddle i use. the trees on them seem to run a little wide though. i got a regular tree and it fits my brick house of a QH gelding. but honestly for $350 the package isnt bad.
