I’m trying a demo Voltaire saddle on Monday. So far it’s been a great experience with these guys, and their saddles look amazing. Just sitting in one at their booth at WEF was great, the leather is nice and grippy, the seat is cushy and comfortable.
The only thing I’m hesitating about is I’m not sure about the durability. The saddle is one of their ‘second-skin’ options, and while I’ve heard it does wonders for connection with your horse, I’m nervous that the thin leather will wear much faster. I’ve also never had a full buffalo leather saddle before. I have no idea how it wears.
Does anybody know how well these saddles hold up? Especially full buffalo, second-skin ones?
