I'm looking for a saddle for my mom, pref. Under $500 (western)
Right now she's thinking about synthetic and nylon/leather halfbreed saddles because they're more lightweight.
She'd like something at least a little western-looking, pref. Pretty comfortable (and if anyone can tell me if this one is comfortable that would be great), and square skirts only..round looks silly on her horse =P
I came across this Fabtron trail saddle:
And she likes how it looks at least in the pictures I've found..
And I know that's not the best picture of it..This here isn't the exact same saddle but it's similar:
So I was just wondering if anyone knows about this saddle and brand..it looks like the brand is fancy since they have the lady trail that apparently sells for like $2500, but you never know.
Also, this particular saddle is about $475..
Any opinions on it or anything? It'd be great if anyone has had one or knows anyone who has, or has just heard a lot about the brand..
Also, suggestions of other nice lightweight/synthetic/nylon+leather saddles would be very much appreciated.
Also, is the Abetta brushpopper (what a name) really as comfortable as it looks? 'cause it looks like sitting on a pillow!
