Another vote for the Big Horn.

IMO the best synthetic on the market is the Fabtron. A good combination of synthetic and leather.

Big Horn is synthetic and leather. With previous years of saddle making experience before they ventured into the synthetic market.

I have an all around square skirted Abetta. I love it. Sure, it's no $3000 leather saddle, but it looks nice (despite being synthetic) and holds up to my heavy duty riding (2+ hours riding daily and barrel races every other weekend)

This is the big horn my mom has (except hers is brown) and it's really comfy and fits her horse well.

I double Big Horn. I'd take it over Abetta personally. Another one is Fabtron. No-no to Wintec on my side (broke under me).

I have one it's pretty nice for trail rides we go swimming at.

Abetta saddles are mostly around $300-$400. It's affordable, comparing to those wintec and Bates. I have a Meti 500 saddle and it works well, affordable prices and supple leather.

Daughter's trainer has an old Abetta synthetic western saddle that she picked up a garage sale for $75. She mainly rides English, but since most people around here ride western, she picked up the saddle so she would have a western saddle to use while training horses. She loves hers.

We tried it on my Dancer, and it fit her beautifully - and all this time I thought she was going to be a booger to find a saddle for.

I'm seriously considering an Abetta Brushpopper saddle, or maybe the Stealth, since it has a round skirt and my Dancer has a short back.
