Difference Between Western and Endurance

I've been wondering this for a while, but I never got around to posting it.

What exactly is the difference between an Endurance saddle and a Western Saddle? It may just be my untrained eye, but to me an endurance saddle is just a western saddle without a horn.

Is that the only difference? Or is it built differently or something?

They're built differently, plus some of them have English stirrup leathers and rigging.

They're definitely not just a Western saddle with no horn.

They're lighter, stronger, and built with the idea that you'll be spending more time in the saddle than a regular rider. It's all about comfort and balance for both the horse and rider.

There CAN be western saddles built for long trail rides and such, that can be passed off as "endurance" saddles, but generally, I agree with Speed racer.
