Thanks for the reply saddle bag. That's what I was looking for....a "if money was no object" scenario.

Im riding an aussie endurance saddle right now, but one day I want to switch over to something else. That's why im wanting to know what the best of the best is in other folks minds that have alot more experience than I have. It gives me something to think about.

Get a tucker gel seat in the style you like and don't look back.
Which model of Aussi endurance do you have and what do you think of it ?

The Big horn clone may be a one of there's that they just use a cheaper tree for NBS, sorta the way walmart makes special deals with manufacturers to cut corners to lower prices. (another reason I wont shop there) As far as the National Bridle, I was looking at the Flex lite gaited, with horn. I just noticed it has different tree. This one has a ralide tree. The gaited endurance doesnt come in 17". They do have a no restocking fee return policy, may just order the thing and find out , can him and haw and guess forever, but wont really know till I sit on it on a horse. I would just like to know who makes it and cut out the middle man. If it is the circly Y then I know it wont work as they use a narrow painful for me twist. Several of the saddles at national saddle shop mention narrow twist, this one doesnt so maybe it is ok. I have an abetta that in need to ride in this weekend, it doesnt fit my horse but I can ride in it enough to see if I like the seat. I do like the cordura, or the leather/cordura combo.

Any saddle that fits the horse and doesn't have a rigid tree, or flex tree, and is comfortable for you.

Hill View Farms makes a very good one.

i posted it up on another thread. It is the kimberly synthetic endurance. I like it. Extremely comfortable. And it helps me stay in the saddle. My mare will shy at times. I havent taken a spill yet. I give the credit to the saddle and not to the rider.

Yes, I have 2 of them. A Working Trail and a Liberty. Both are very nice saddles. I have the Working Trail for sale at $1500.00. It is a 17" and I need a smaller one for the kids. It was new in 2008, and has been used very little.

Every gaited horse I've owned has been on the stocky side...because I am, and I refuse to ride a slab sided horse whose rear is more narrow than mine.

SO..I have a wide treed Eli Miller Endurance saddle that I've used for years and it's been wonderful. This is one of the ones that Eli made...not the newer ones made by his cousin/nephew/whatever??/ It is incredibly comfortable for me...and the horse. My old SSH was having some issues moving out and when I went to this saddle, it was just like getting a new horse! He loved it. I love it. I especially like the crossfire rigging and no saddle horn. It's not like I'm going to be roping any cattle!

I'm really hoping that my next horse will fit the saddle. That may be weird, but I LOVE this saddle.

Yes I too am not partial to a saddle horn. I don't need it, and don't even care for the look of a western saddle. In my opinion the plantation style is a beautiful saddle. Some endurance types look good too.

I've ridden a buena vista some, and that was pure pleasure to ride. Not much there to help keep you in the saddle. And im a new rider. That's why I use an aussie on my mare I have now. She tends to spook at things. But that buena vista was a pleasure to ride on a bomb proof mare I was using.

If we are talking hypothetical saddles, with no limits on cash, go to a good saddler, tell him/her the type of horses you are riding, what type of riding you are doing, and get a saddle custom made, tree, saddle, the whole lot.

Andrew I notice you are in australia. Is it typical for ya'll to use an outback australian saddle or do some there use the traditional looking western saddle w/ a horn?
