    I think it's weird that our saddles have horns in other countries. I don't know if I've ever seen one with a horn here.

    I have a western though, and I don't mind the horn, but I feel that there is a lot of space between me and it, but in a stock saddle I'm locked in and close to the pommel, and certainly wouldn't want a horn there.

    It's to make it more 'western-y' for those of us who ride western. People here aren't used to not having horns unless they ride English. Once I started saddle searching I admit I wanted one too, until I read a thing about a lady who had her horse flip on her and the horn crushed her chest. Then I changed my mind and bought a hornless!

    They even have hybrid saddles that are a cross between a western and an Aussie so we can feel like we still ride western. I wanted one of those too. I ended up buying a DownUnder stock saddle, hornless, and I could not be more happy with it, so it worked out in the end.

    Sawed off the horn: Hooray! I love that. Horns on Aussie saddles are insanity. LOL
