I purchased my HDR close contact saddle recently. I have a hard fit horse. I tried a lot tof different saddles including Stubben, Bates and Crosby. The trees we're always to narrow even in the wide trees. Or the saddle was just not comforatble to ride in. I trail ride and do some showing in the APHA. I like this saddle alot and my horse loves it. Its a realy nice saddle to look at and rides like a 3,000 saddle . I read a few of the other reviews and agree with some of the statements. But I can say that my saddle has been rode in quite alot and is not falling apart at all. But I will agree that this saddle hast to be rode in correctly or it seems to push you foward in the trot. And my horse is smooth as glass to ride. So this might not be the right saddle for everyone , but like I said I love it , and so does my horse.
