Who rides with an Australian saddle?

I like the looks of an Australian saddle. So I was wondering who rides one and what they think?

I have one and I love it!! I feel like I am more secure because of the pollies(spelling?) It has a very comfortable seat as well. Overall I am impressed. I have a stock saddle with a horn, because the place I went didn't have any without. I would have preferred one without. I have a few on Kijiji lately. And if you have a greenhawk shop close by one can get one there. They also have a website www.greenhawk.com

I tried one and really liked it, but it does put you in a different position than western or english saddles do. It might take some time to get used to for those who have had the proper posture drilled into them.

I have the Wintec Australian saddle, and I love it. It gives me extra security, and I don't think it changes my position as much as some brands might.

I have a custom, hand made stock saddle. Absolutely love it. Cost a pretty penny but it's my pride and joy, and fits everyone! If you do a search for Australian saddles i've written a TON of info on them in response to people, and posted pictures of my own.

I love my aussie. Only problem, the bars are to small :( I have a high withered horse and the bars are close together so it slides back all the time. Too bad cause SOOOOO COMFY! Do you have one???

Hyperfocus2011 - I'm thinking about it. I like the look and I've heard that they're comfy. Plus I've been researching what saddle sizes would best fit my percheron/canadianx and it seems I need something with a 9" - 10"gullet, but I'm small - 5'3, and it's hard to find a western saddle with a large gullet and smaller seat. So I was on ebay and found 9"-10" gullet australian saddle that had a 17" seat (which if I understand things is around a 15" seat in western)

Alicia I have a 17, and it is a pretty big seat. I would prefer a 16 for me but my hubby has a huge butt, and needs the 17. Hehehehe
And I am a "small" lady, at 112lbs and 5'6"
