Abetta round skirt trail saddle-synthetic
I have a gaited mustang with a short back. I tried a saddle with gaited bars, but it didn't fit. I decided to go with the full quarter horse bars instead of gaited. I bought the 16" saddle. It is 25" in length, which is just right for my horse. The saddle is a tiny bit snug for me, which I blame on the extra padding in the seat. It's a synthetic saddle and it's super lightweight, which is exactly what I wanted. The downside is that the cinch strap is odd. I bought a nylon strap to replace the one that came with the saddle. Also, the saddle doesn't come with a cinch. I used a neoprene cinch, which worked great! I appreciate that this saddle is made in America.

Great saddle
This saddle is light, comfortable, is a great price, and fits my horse who has high withers! I purchased a contour barell saddle pad from this site to go with it. I would definitely recommend this saddle. I'm even thinking of buying the wide tree version for my other horses.

Love the weight.
I went from a wooden tree leather saddle to this saddle because I wanted it for my smaller horse. It is taking some getting used to. It seems to fit my 14.2 hand quarter/mustang horse well. The seat feels comfortable for me although it seems to generate more heat than my leather one. I changed the stirrups to some aluminum angled ones as the original ones seemed kind of flimsy. The fenders are more freewheeling than I am used to. I haven't been on a real long ride with it yet so am withholding further comment on long term comfort and durability. The best thing is the weight of it. I do wish it had some rings for attaching things.

Long Lasting
I've had mine for about 10 years. I pretty much never clean it, if I need to it is very easy to do. Has fit several different horses. It is still in great condition and I'm sure I'll have it for many more years.

The BEST saddle money can buy!!!
I've had my Abetta saddle for 13 years! It's been through just about everything a saddle can experience. It has fit every horse its been on (lots of horses), has held up even through all of the training sessions (been fallen on, laid on, etc.), and the only thing that ever happened was two conchos coming off! Two years ago I got another Abetta saddle (the pathfinder one) for my husband and he loves it. These saddles are such excellent quality, they are worth every penny and more. My original Abetta saddle (I still have the matching pad too) is the purple southwest print, and since my daughter has now started using it, I'll be getting another one soon. Wish I could find that color again, if they still make it. Anyway, just thought I'd put in my 2cents. You can't go wrong with an Abetta!!!
