Product Summary:

Down Under Kimberley Synthetic Endurance Saddle with Horn 
Beauty meets function… meets value! The intelligently designed Kimberley Synthetic Endurance Saddle from Down Under will impress even the skeptics. The suspended seat and smooth poleys on an Australian saddle offer superior comfort and a balanced secure ride. Plenty of dee rings and adjustment points make for a great trail or working saddle. Crafted of the highest quality synthetic leathers for easy maintenance and durability with long-lasting equi-suede on the seat and poleys that won’t lose its nap or grip.  The heart of this light weight endurance styled saddle is the same sturdy wood and steel tree that is in the rest of the Kimberley models. The saddle is made of a woven synthetic material, with synthetic suede seat, poleys, and wear patches for extra grip. Nubuck trim on the back of the cantle. Saddle comes with billets so no overgirth is required.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! Although the saddle took longer to arrive than I expected it too, it was I must admit worth the wait. I was really surprised when I opened the box. The saddle is beautiful! I love it! Impressed with the quality. I have a Paso Fino and he is wide,and I am petite, so I bought a 16W and it fits him perfectly! The saddle is very comfortable and I feel nice and snug in the seat. Couldn't be happier! Looking forward to many happy trails! ? April 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best saddle I ever bought! The last saddle I bought was a Wintec english and I thought I'd died and went to heaven, it was so comfortable, but with this saddle both me and my MFT have died and gone to heaven. My horse is so comfortable with this saddle that she moves really nice and I feel so secure in it. Now I can enjoy my trail rides with out having sore knees and lower back. The price is great even though it was on back order for about a month but well worth the wait. When it came in I had a professional english saddle fitter come and see how it fit my horse and even he was suprised at the quality and fit. BEST SADDLE I EVER BOUGHT!!! When this one wears out I'm getting another one!!!!! April 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good choice for the price I've had this saddle about 2 years now and it has held up well. A little place under the flap came loose but I screwed it back down. I have it in brown, it is dark and light, brass fittings, nylon 'leathers'. I like two things about this saddle. First, it's an aussie saddle with NO overgirth! This means you won't be sitting on a strap. You can use a regular 2 buckle english saddle girth, no need to buy special overgirth girth with the extra end pieces. It came with a 22", I would suggest 28" is a better fit for most horses. I used it on my Morgan and she didn't like it, tried to buck me off, but on my TWH mare it it quite nice. It has reasonably wide bars so I have to pad it up a bit since she has high thin withers, but just a nice thick pad, no need for a lot of fiddling. really can't say anything negative, but I might want to find one that will hold up for some more vigorous riding in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by slips a lot I put off buying this saddle for months, then it went on sale so I ordered the brown with horn. I love love love the saddle, it's comfortable, beautiful (switched out the stirrups). However, I have tried a number of different pads/blankets, but I still get a lot of slipping - saddle slips and pads seem to slip right out from under it. I love the saddle so much that I am not going to give up until I find a pad that doesn't slip. August 28, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Saddle, looks great I like this saddle, and I have ridden in it twice. It offers security, if your horse is green or spooks a lot. If your stirrup strap length is long enough you won't have any rubbing where the straps attach. It is not meant to sit in like a chair, no saddle is. Girth is not long enough, so you will need to replace it with a size 30" if your horse is medium size. With the girth that arrives there is too much strap against the horse, and not enough girth. I would buy again for any horse that might act up, just to get good seat security. Get the wide or your saddle will be too narrow for most. I am using mine on a Foxtrotter and a Tennessee walker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't go wrong with this saddle After going back & forth finally decided to give the saddle a try & I am so glad I did. Ordered this model & spoke to customer service for help and they were the best. Beautiful little saddle, well made with nice materials. A pleasure to saddle up, light weight and fits my gaited horse to a T. Very secure so I feel more confident on my horses back. Too bad the site won't let you upload photos, my horse looks great in this saddle. Order this one, you won't be disappointed. July 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVELY SADDLE- Just buy it! It's everything it says it is, and way more! I bought a 16W for my 15.1/1100 round half arab/QH. The 22" girth fits fine. IT Fit's my hard to fit mare, is as comfortable as my old Crosby show saddle, you cannot be unseated in it- lol- even with a half Arab. The included girth was black, not brown, and had elastic on one end/roller buckles. A VERY NICE high quality, easy to use, very easy to cinch up neoprene girth. I quickly forgave it for not matching my saddle. April 29, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Value / Excellent Comfort Purchased this saddle a couple of months ago. Very comfortable for rider and horse. Thought the cinch that came with it was to small ( 22" )but it has held up so far. I highly recommend this saddle for its comfort and price. October 25, 2011

I love Australian saddles. The one I have was bought used and I don't know the tree size. My Paint is stocky built and my saddle slips. It's too narrow for his wide flat back. I'm tempted to get a 17w. Will this saddle in a wide fit a flat backed horse?

Thanks, Paul
Paul B on May 25, 2014
Best Answer: Yes. I've used it on a barrel of a Haflinger and a smaller built pony and a TB and a TW and an Azteca... seems to fit any one! I have a wide; if the horse is smaller, I pad up (I have a pad you can add shims inside).

Is the stirrup as far forward as it looks in the picture, where does the stirrup fall on the horse's body? Also if I use a 17" dressage saddle now, what size should I get it in?
Jackie on Feb 22, 2014
Best Answer: Use a 17...same as English sizing. The stirrup is more forward- in an Aussie, you sit down deep in the seat with your legs kicked forward a bit sitting in a rocking chair! (VERY comfy for us older riders with knee pain; I added endurance stirrups for more comfort. The hammock like suspension of the seat is very comfy for you and your horse). So the stirrup falls a bit more forward than a western, but you will not feel like your canted forward. It's a natural position!

Has anyone tried this saddle on A thoroughbred? Mine doesn't have huge withers, but he does have them. Thanks!
Debra R on Jun 1, 2014
Best Answer: I bought my first one years ago and was going to trash it when the billets wore out. Ordered another one, then had the billets repaired anyway so I had good trail saddles for both of my horses. These saddles fit ALL back types. Though I teach Dressage/Hunter-Jumpers/Driving/Endurance, I have found this saddle to be the least expensive, best trail saddle, as well as the lightest and best fitting for it's purpose (endurance esp.)to be found. I am 68, have taught riding lessons for 43 years (non-stop), am familiar with all brands of (English) saddles, and recommend this saddle for any horse type. I personally use English leathers and stirrups with them, as well as a good thick(square)saddle pad.

received synthetic saddle with a girth much to small 22inch .much too small saddle is 18what size girth is correct?
Ruthie S on Apr 2, 2015
Best Answer: With the saddle on your horse, measure from the first billet hole on one side, underneath the horse's belly up to the first billet hole on the other side. The girth size closest to that measurement is a good place to start. Measuring to the first hole on either side will give you leeway to tighten the girth.
