We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Saddles crafted by renowned leather goods maker, Henri de Rivel, give you world-class European designs in the finest Imported leather-all at a reasonable price. And Henri de Rivel riding saddles and leather goods are not built on a massive assembly line like other saddles. Their riding equipment is expertly created with painstaking craftsmanship and an unmatched attention to detail.

The HDR Pro Event Saddle comes in flocked or foam panels.

Foam: The ever popular all purpose saddle constructed in smooth Havana leather meets the needs of eventers, fox hunters, pony clubbers, and trail riders alike. The slightly elongated, padded flap with knee roll invites riders to lengthen stirrups for flat work, but still allows the rider to perform when stirrups are shortened for jumping. Foam panels provide close contact, and a slightly wider fit.

Flocked: An all purpose saddle constructed in durable yet supple buffalo leather offering a secure-grip deep seat, padded flap with a medium size knee roll and a gusseted flocked panel. A design that can take a rider across a grueling cross country course or a relaxing trail ride. This saddle meets the needs of the multi-discipline rider.

    HDR Pro Event Saddle is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfy! I bought this saddle for my hard-to-fit 4 year old American Saddlebred filly. She's very petite (not even 15hh) and narrow. Her back is pretty flat, yet she has the prominent Saddlebred withers. Most saddles I tried either had too much flocking that caused the saddle to sit an an angle on her back, or they were too wide in the withers. This saddle sits right on her back perfectly.It's also an incredibly comfortable saddle. Other girls in the barn have told me they're jealous as their saddles don't have nearly as much padding on the seat. There is no painful break-in period; from ride one this saddle feels like a couch. The sticky buffalo hide, large knee rolls, and deep seat all help to maintain correct position on the horse, and provides a very attractive look.My only complaint with this saddle -- and the only thing preventing me from giving it a 5-star rating -- is that the calf skin on the seat and knee rolls scratches SO easily. I store my saddle with the girth draped over the seat, and that has already left some marks on the saddle. Fortunately, they are all in a place that cannot be seen with I am mounted.
