Hello all! I am new to this forum and have a question regarding saddles.

Thanks for you time,
Shannon

The Tucker endurance saddles are very nice but they are EXPENSIVE but worth the price tag. They also have trials where you can try the saddle out before purchasing. I am thinking of purchasing one, so I will be watching this thread too Oh, and welcome to the forum by the way!

Abetta endurance saddles are good too. They are synthetic so you don't have to worry about doing through water or anything and they are relatively inexpensive.

My fiance loves how he is "sucked" into the seat.

What's your price range? What style do you prefer, English or Western? If western, do you want a horn or no?

If money was no problem I would have this Steele Frontier


Or this Synergist endurance


Both really nice saddles in the $2k price range

Endurance Saddle

I am looking for a western style. I know its not much $ but I am looking around 500$ if possible.
I am not in endurance racing just yet, But I would like to get a starter saddle and start toning my horse. It will be a little while before I can get into it seriously as Hala is just 3 years now.

Thanks,
Shannon

The Abettas are ok, my sister used to have one. They are easy to clean. I would go for leather if you had the money for it. Have you looked into Endurance Australian Stock seat saddles? They are great for endurance/trail riding. Keeps you in for starting young horses too. You can google it if you are interested. Down Under Saddlery is famous for their great saddles.

You can get a nice saddle for that used. Since he's 3, keep in mind that he will grow and change shape, so you may need a new saddle when he's 4 or 5 years old.

An Abetta might be a good idea, to keep things low cost and nice. I have an Abetta Endurance that held up to 4 years of hard trail riding and is still usbale, though not that pretty anymore, lol. You can find them used $150-250, or new $300-400. Their Endurance saddle is y-rigged, or center-fire rigged, which was too far back for my mare. The saddle would slide forward over her shoulders during our ride. It only cost me $45 to have the rigging moved back to 7/8ths position. It worked like a charm! Their regular QH tree fits a wide variety of horses.

Or you can go treeless, but that will likely put you over you $500 budget, even used . I really like my Bob Marshall endurance saddle and another friend does long distance riding in a Barefoot Arizona, which "western-y".
