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 can't 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.
