Abetta endurance saddle
The best! The saddle is beautiful to look at, comfortable to ride in, and easy to keep clean. I had a difficult horse to fit, but this did the trick. Highly recommended.

Buying another...
I love this saddle for both my arab and arab cross. Not so much for my bum or for looks. I've had it for 5 years with medium use. Looks good still, as good as cordura looks. I am going to buy another because it's good for my horses. I am adding english leathers, fleece leather covers per a online forum suggestion. I am adding seat cushions to them both.I like that I can hose it off and not have to drag it around to clean it. I really like the cushion grip lining.

Excellent saddle for the price.
This is the second Abetta saddle I've owned. I love how lightweight, comfortable, and low-maintenance they are! The only thing I seriously recommend changing is the off-billet/tie strap. I never use nylon ones with my horses, especially with an endurance saddle. They don't flex and breathe the way leather does, which is what you need on a long ride to prevent discomfort and chafing on your horse.Obviously this won't last as long as a quality leather saddle, but not everyone can, or wants to, lift a heavy saddle like that.All in all, you can't go wrong with these saddles. If you're looking for a cost-effective, nearly-maintenance-free, comfortable, lightweight-but-not-cardboard synthetic saddle, this is a great option!

INSANELY COMFORTABLE....GREAT FIT FOR MY HORSE
This saddle is a must have for anyone I don't care if your just trail riding or exercising horses this saddle is insanely comfortable from the very first ride. Fit my paint gelding like a glove and I have been threw at least 5 saddles in 9 months trying to fit him and me and this saddle did it!!!! BUY THIS SADDLE! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!! It is worth every penny!! Shipping was so fast to I got my saddle in just 3 days!!!

Great Saddle
Decided to buy another one of these saddles. FYI- the skirt is 24" in length. Much better fit for my shorter-backed Arabian than the Arabian tree, which is 2" longer in the skirt.

Awesome
This saddle is amazingly light so its perfect for endurance racing or trail riding. My horse loves it!At first leather is brand new so it needs to be worn out a little for the stirrups. Overall very confterbul and PERFECT SADDLE!

I LOVE THIS SADDLE
I have been riding exclusively, with this saddle for over 4 years and about 4-5 times per week. It is light weight and when cleaned, still looks almost new, showing no wear. I use this saddle for trail and arena work. I like that I can easily post the trot due to its proper position of the stirrup fall. I have a shorter-backed, fuller body Arabian that has had no problems with this saddle. This saddle also fits my friend's Thoroughbred and Rocky Mtn. horses. The saddle rings do jingle when trotting, so I have tied the rings together. I also have changed out the latigo and billet straps to leather, which makes it much more comfortable for the horse. I would buy this saddle again, in a heartbeat.

Excellent Saddle
I bought this saddle 18 months ago. I do not ride endurance, but do a combination of western arena work and trail riding. I wanted a lightweight, low-maintenance saddle without a horn, but with a western seat.This product has suited me perfectly. I took off one star for quality only because it comes with a nylon tie-strap and off-billet. An exercising horse needs to breathe, and nylon does not flex at all! I switched these out for leather ones before using the saddle. I have read of some instances of this saddle causing soreness, and I believe nylon (or improper fit) is the culprit. Anyway, I've used the saddle several times a week for many months now. It has yet to show any signs of wear. Some of the tie-rings jingle, but I removed a few (easily done with a screw-driver) and tied the others together with a piece of rope, and now it is silent and comfortable. I particularly love the wide, cushioned stirrups, and the flexibility of the fenders. My horse also has never shown anything but a favorable opinion of the saddle. He's a 15.2 APHA gelding, and the saddle fits him just right with a generous pad.

Should I order a size up like for the Serenity?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Whatever size you ride in normally in a regular Western saddle is what you would order.
what size are the latigo and off billet straps? 1 1/2 or 1 3/4"? Thanks...

Abetta Endurance Saddle--SLT901117-- how much does it weigh in pounds?

4" swivel stirrups-- what are "swivel" stirrups? How do they swivel"

Thanks,.... Eddie
Eddie T on Apr 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: the point where the stirrup attaches to stirrups strap has an actual swivel attachment that lets the stirrup move freely laterally, kinda of like a twist mechanism. most endurance stirrups have these. better movement.
Does this saddle use an English-style girth (2 buckles)? Or is it Western style with the latigo and knot?
cindy v on Feb 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This item is designed like a western saddle.
what does the saddle weigh?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It weighs approximately 19 lbs.
how do you size a Saddle?
sking on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These seat sizes run small. Based upon the usage of the memory foam, the manufacturer suggests sizing up a full seat size.
I am short - 5'2' with short legs, and tend to find western stirrups will not go short enough. How short do these go?
