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 Much to my surprise! I have a 5 yr old in training. I fractured one of my fingers and the on and off of the western tack became to much. My Husband found this saddle and ordered it for me. I didn't expect much but when it arrived and I took it out of the box, all I could say was "Wow, I am impressed!" Great, great value for the price and very light weight and I can handle tacking him up by myself! My only complaint is the nylon straps did pinch my leg alot! I will take Andrea's suggestion on changing out the nylon leathers to real leather. Other than that I love the look, price and comfort it provides. I have never ridden in anything other than a bareback pad or western saddle. Thanks Kimberly :-) July 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome saddle Much nicer than expected !! Light and comfy. Would highly recommend. July 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it!! I got this for my hard to fit donkey, I actually bought it straight from the manufacter & sent in a with tracing for my donk. It fits her great! It has to be the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden in! very secure, fits me great. the serge panels are closed cell foam, so it has extra 'built' in padding for your animal. Love all the places to hook stuff! I've already made a matching breeching and it attached beautifully to this saddle! Light weight,easy care, looks way better in person!! ( btw, I got black) October 26, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great buy! My daughter bought this saddle 2 yrs. ago - compact like a hunt saddle and light too, but the material grips you wonderfully - the high back and the polies keep you tight in your seat. secure on the horse - never slipped in any direction and easy to cinch up. And minimum care! I have leather austrailian endurance saddles and treeless saddles and I think the close contact and gripping of the seat material - lightness is better in this little favorite of all the saddles we own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for the price Good value for the price. Very light. I love the ease in cinching with the elastic girth but it definitely needs a breast plate if your going to ride up hill. I replaced the nylon leathers with real leather ones, I found the nylon pinched my leg quite a lot. The dee rings screws on the front for the breast plate came loose so I had to glue them. This is the worst feature on this saddle. June 10, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice saddle for the price I have the brown saddle; it is a dark brown, not peanut colored, more like a brazil nut. Very comfortable and strong brass fittings screwed in, lightweight, gold top stitching. Won't last 100 years but will do the job well enough. Try it, you'll like it! June 10, 2010

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.
