Years a go in our local paper someone advertised a Hermes saddle for sale for $300-wow! I called and asked about the saddle to be sure it was an Hermes and seller assured me it was. I made arrangements to see it, cash in hand and when she pulled it out it was NOT an Hermes! A Hussar of something I never heard of! Seller was a bit annoyed when i told her I didn't want it since it was not what she said it was. So watch those cheap saddle ads!
I used to have an old wotan...a little uncomfortable at first (hard seat) but one of the best saddles I've even owned. Puts you in to perfect seat, makes you use your legs correctly, and they last forever!!
