So, I have a quarter horse gelding who's almost fully trained in western pleasure and also does a bit of roping, cutting, and barrel racing. I wanted to get a new saddle to have for play days and local shows and I really want to go with a black an white color scheme. I also want to learn roping and cutting! I found this saddle and I really like it, but I've heard that this place uses water buffalo for their saddles. It's not like they kept it a secret, they mentioned it on some of their adds, and the ones that didn't say water buffalo said something along the lines of 100% genuine leather. (Like this add) I'm going to go check it out within the next week or so, anyone know what I should look for to determine good leather quality? Please and thank you :)
