Leather

Natural and noble material.

Traditional and generally more aesthetically pleasing.

Long-lasting if well looked after. Long drying time after heavy rain.

Regular maintenance is essential.

 

Synthetic

Less expensive.

Easy care.

Dries quickly after being out in the rain.

Lightweight saddle. Can heat up from friction.

Limited lifespan particularly for intensive practice.
