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.

Is the Aussie saddle sizing 19 equal 17 in the American western saddle?
Gretchen B on Mar 9, 2015
Best Answer: I PURCHASED THIS ITEM 4 YRS AGO AND LOVE IT, YES THE SIZE 19'' IS ABOUT THE SAME AS THE 17'' WESTERN SIZING. I INIALLY BOUGHT IT AS A SPARE BUT ONCE I STARTED USING IT ,I RODE IN IT ALL THE TIME. I RECENTLY ORDERED A SECOND ONE. I DO A LOT OF TRAIL RIDING. IT IS COMFY, AND I HAVE EVEN GONE SWIMMING WITH IT. GOOD LUCK . NITA CURTIS.

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).

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.

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 more...like 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!
