I'm on the hunt for my first English saddle, and I'm having a hard time finding one locally. I've been looking at a few Collegiates and Bates online, but a friend recommended that I look at Henri de Rival. Here is one I found:
Henri de Rivel Pro Buffalo Event AP Saddle 17 5" | eBay
I'm looking for something that's durable and will fit my QH mare, (she's four, still changing) or my 7yr old QH gelding.
I need as cheap as possible as well, but I understand that you get what you pay for ;p
Also, does the two different colors look alright? I had one friend who said they didn't like it because of the color, but I'm not sure that really matters for me.
Do you think this looks like a good saddle for me to start in? Pricing as well?
