I had a Kimberley Light in the past. I was not impressed with the leather quality, felt like dry cardboard. It was very comfortable for the rider, not for the horse. The tree was supposed to be Wide, but was actually very narrow and padding on the horse's back was hard. I had good service from the company. Overall impression, it was a cheap saddle; I had what I paid for.

I guess it depends on which saddle you have of their series. I have been riding in a little bit older Kimberly from Down Under either Stock or Outback (doesn't say which) Aussie saddle since March and I'm in love. It's a stout all leather Aussie saddle and it's my go to for trails. I haul to numerous all day trail rides and wouldn't use anything else now that I've had a taste. This is my first Aussie. But of course I don't know how that compares to the Kimberly western endurance. I've always heard good things though about Kimberleys and Down Under in general.

Really.So impressive!!! I've not used this company's saddle.I use Horseware often. Their saddles are really excellent!And sometimes I also use other brands like Weatherbeeta,Harrison Howard or Native Pony. Maybe I should try Down Under next time.
