I got mine from Taylored Tack. Amanda is great to work with. You can pick colors and order normal sizes or have it custom made to fit your horse.

Biscuit and I are wanna-be endurance riders. Here is Biscuit on a training ride with his Taylor-Made purple biothane Halter/Bridle which I absolutely LOVE.

I just ordered a new saddle pad in purple.....I love purple and Biscuit's new endurance saddle should be here in a week or so. The other horse in the picture is also wearing Taylor-Made tack. IMG_4142_2.jpg

If this takes away from the thread I am sorry, figured it'd be good in here. What do you all prefer for endurance saddles? I'm really looking at getting into endurance. Have ordered my biothane tack as we've begun training and am now looking into a saddle. What kind / brand do you prefer?

The kind that fits your horse first and your butt second.

That sounds flippant (and it's def said with a grin), but it's the honest answer. There are countless types of saddle available and the type/brand that works best for my mare and my butt may be the worst thing ever for your horse and your butt.

Personally, I ride Dream in a Free'N'Easy and it works great for us both. But I think it was Joe who called it complicated as a rubix cube to adjust, so I suspect it doesn't work for him! I also have a Torsion (which is treeless) as my "catch ride" saddle, as in theory a treeless is more likely to fit many different types of horses.

What type of saddle are you most comfortable in? There are endurance saddles based on "english" saddles and "western" saddles and even "aussie" saddles. If you started out riding western, you may feel very insecure in an english-based endurance saddle and I have heard people who started riding english saying they felt trapped in a western-based saddle.

What saddle do you ride in currently? Is there a reason you are looking to change that saddle right away?

That is so true Dawn. I have rode Biscuit in 4 different saddles - a horned Aussie first and then the hornless one....then I got an endurance saddle WITH a horn and to my eternal sorrow sold the Aussies. That saddle fit for awhile til he became VERY fit and it was pitching me forward. I ordered another endurance saddle and in the mean time rode in Hubby's Billy Cook Western Trail Saddle and ordered another synthetic Aussie. My new endurance saddle without a horn should be here next week or so.

Hahahahaha...I also rode in my cousin's flextree Circle Y one day.

A saddle that fits makes the ride so much more enjoyable for both man and beast. If I had never started Endurance training on Biscuit his saddle would have kept on fitting his chunky self! The training changed his body shape so I would say make sure your horse is FIT before settling on one particular saddle.

I currently ride western, and ride in a billy cook all around. Although I feel it's very heavy for the longer rides. I do have an abetta and a big horn synthetic and I love them for the longer rides, just not sure how they'll hold up. I did just see an abetta endurance model for sale and I love mine now, so I might see how it fits. The abettas always seem to fit the best and are very comfy! I do ride english as well, so I guess I could go either way. I'll have to try a few out and see what I feel fits us both best! Thank you!

Not an endurance rider (just a trail rider so far) but hope to have a go at endurance in the coming years if my horse is up to it.

Just wanted to say I get my trail tack here: Horse Gear | Horse Riding Gear and Endurance Tack for Trail Riding

Love this store. I have the zilco bridle in purple and a purple breast collar. The customer service is great, when I had issues with the fit of the breast collar (my horse needs a warmblood size and I got him regular horse size so it was a bit tight) they did everything they could to help; I managed to resolve the issue without returning the breast collar but they were super nice and helpful.
