Rum the only reason I pointed it out was that if a dealer or store for that matter generally sell a demo saddle they have had they sell it with a guarantee that if it does not fit your horse they will take it back. This person was using the saddle at demos and then listed it on a forum and had a final sale status, in other words if it didn't fit too bad.

I think that is very poor form by any saddle dealer. Now if it was a person who had purchased it and it no longer fit their horse that is a different matter.

My fault I should have been more specific when I noted that - my bad.

Fabtron is one of the best synthetic saddles on the market and when I hit 80 and my knees can't handle leather fenders anymore I will have one hanging in my tack room!

I'm far from 80 lol! But I have Fibromyalgia and various other problems so I need a lighter weight saddle. I have tried my best to use leather saddles because I do prefer all leather, but they are just too heavy The Fabtron weighs 22# and there are days I can barely lift it

Macslady I agree with the above.

I should have stated that I did not buy the Freedom Saddle new but used from someone I met at the clinic.

I also do not have the coin ($2000) to buy the saddle I would want but not sure what that is?!?! I do have an old Lamb saddle that weighs 60+ but I bought it from someone that meant a lot to me so it is hard for me to use it, don't want to tear it up but hell if I don't it is just going to collect dust. I think I will start using it.

Macslady, Guilherme or anyone out there know of a good saddle repair shop? I got some stirrups that need some repairing???

The old Lamb saddles are very, very well made and just beautiful, but as you said, they are heavy. Do you have photos of it? I am a sucker for vintage western saddles :)

It appears that Lamb Saddlery is still in business.

Lamb Saddlery - Home

I'd contact them and discuss your repair needs. They might have a local shop that does work for them.

I will post some soon. My Lamb is easily 40 years old and still in good condition just need to get the stirrup leather repaired. I did replace them but I really like the original ones so I am looking for a place to get'em repaired

Looking forward to it!! I used to buy vintage western saddles, fix them up and resell them for pretty much what I paid, so def. Didn't make a profit lol! It's basically a hobby when/if I have the extra cash to buy them :)

I ride in a treless barrel saddle and love it. It fits all of my horses well and they're all different shapes and sizes. Much more comfy on my bum too
