They are synthetic, but by the photos they are the most gorgeous synthetics I have ever seen! I like the idea of the tree, too - available in widths but adjustable by an authorized dealer with a heat unit to any measurement, kinda like Prestige, from my understanding.
I am excited about them because I have a good jumping saddle, but would love to get an inexpensive dressage saddle to dabble with. I kinda like the looks of the horse boots too!
I sat in one the other day and it put me in perfect position (dressage saddle). I didn't have to fight it and it seem really secure without trapping me in the saddle. Granted, this was on a saddle buck at the store, but I'll be looking for a demo to try on my horse soon (have to save up a bit first).
I, too, would like some info on them if anyone has any to give.
