Love it or hate it?
This is one of those saddles that I cannot decide whether I love it or hate it. I usually don't care for two toned saddles like this, but this one is oddly appealing. I like the contrast of the light leather with the black trim. I think I would like it more if the leather were a bit darker, perhaps a dark oxblood color. I think the spots are just silver studs, not rhinestones (if they are I retract my previous statement and hate it), and there is just enough silver to make it pop. It also looks fairly well made.
Now, this next one I truly hate. Not only is it an odd conglomeration of different colored leather, but you can tell that it is a cheap piece of crap. All of the skirts are curling and it is brand new, the whole thing just looks poorly made. Why would you make the lower skirts black and the seat dark brown? It looks like they just had some leftover parts that they threw together to make a saddle.
