I have had mine for over a year now, and with good care and cleaning it has held up very well! I love the seat to mine, I am able to sit very well, and it fits me super well. I love the leather that they use on their saddles, it is super high quality and is easy to clean and keep dirt off of. I think for the price, they are really great saddles. Everyone at my barn has one, they are super popular. We all do h/j, and they work perfectly. I say totally get one, they are a great deal!
