    Comments about Raleigh Close Contact with Leather Knee Rolls:

    I bought this saddle because my previous one no longer fit myself or my horse. I didn't expect much, but was pleasantly surprise when I received the saddle.
    Both the seat and knee rolls are extremely comfortable. The leather quality is lacking, and the top layer peels off around the cantle and leathers. The color is much darker than in the picture, and the screws on mine are flat and silver instead of bronze and rounded like those shown in the picture.

    Overall though, it's by far the best saddle in this price range and looks like it cost a lot more than it did. I show open local shows in it and it works just fine.

      Comments about Raleigh Close Contact with Leather Knee Rolls:

      My saddle came today and I already am in LOVE with it! I sat it in and its super comfortable, the leather is really soft and feels broken in, and the fit is perfect! I went an inch above my suggested saddle size and its awesome. Great value for $140 feels and looks like a $1000 saddle!
