I'm getting a new Equipe jumping saddle but can't decide on what type of leather. I can get both calfskin and printed leather for the same price..
I ride every day help me choose! . I ride every day. Can you give me your opinions please? Thanks
Calf is softer and will break in easier. Grain leather is harder to break in but more durable.
I prefer grain leather but I ride a lot and like my saddles to last a long time. My favorite has been in hard use for 18 years and still looks good.
Don't ride in jeans if you get a calf one, ever!
Buffalo would be my first choice, then calf, then grain.

I go from buffalo to grain to calf. I personally hate calf because in my experience with it, it does not las as long.
