Abetta saddles??

Does anyone know if Abetta saddles are any good? Never heard of em before but just found them while I was browsing thru saddles.

I owned one for several years & liked it alot. It all depends on whether you like synthetic saddles though. Some people don't. I find them comfortable, easy to maintain & they seem to fit a wider range of horses. I also love all the matching accessories you can get for them lol
To me, they are a nice, decent quality cheap saddle.

They are good for the price. I didn't like one because it put my legs in wrong position, but it always depends on person.

I had one. Liked the basic saddle, but the fenders was tough to change in length, and since my daughter and I were sharing it...it went away. There are some replacement fenders from Big Horn that are supposed to have Blevins buckles. If I had known, I might have bought those fenders and kept the saddle.

I had an endurance saddle by Abetta a few years back...I hated it, but...it was cheap and I was broke. I heard they have gotten better recently.

I bought one about a month ago, and I'm pretty happy with it. It's easy to clean, lightweight, fits several horses, and it is attractive for a synthetic. I normally ride English in my dressage saddle, but I use my abetta for trail rides and it works just fine :)

Ok thanks a lot everybody. I'm asking about them cause I would like to get a lighter western saddle.. I have two western but one I'm going to sell and the other is a show saddle so it's kinda heavy.

I had an Abetta saddle that was 17 lbs. Round skirt. I loved the way it looked, just didn't fit my gelding so I had to take it back and she didn't have any other sizes so I went with a leather. Played it safe. I like them though. They are pretty popular

My mom has a Big Horn for her horse, also synthetic. It seems much nicer quality than the Abetta I had...maybe look into those too?
