New Kimberly Aussie Saddle

Finally got a new saddle. I found it on ebay, originally sells for new for $700 got it for $400 including shipping, woot! It's the Kimberly Superior with horn. I really am liking it! Already I found that I was sitting too far back on my butt in my old saddle. It's also lightweight, and I don't know how, but it fits both my horses pretty well! So anyways, so far, positive reviews for this one! Oh, and don't mind the western saddle pad. I haven't gotten an aussie one yet. Anybody know a reason a western pad wouldn't work? It seems fine to me.

Nice find! I've used a western with my aussie saddle and have had no problems. Only thing I can forsee is sweat maybe discoloring the leather on the part that hangs below the pad. My aussie is synthethic so I don't have that problem. Enjoy your new saddle.

I use a Navajo blanket with mine:



The looks are questionable, but I finish rides with the hair all lying flat and even, and pretty even sweat marks. I've switched to the bent sort of English safety stirrups and English leathers since this photo was taken.

Thanks for the info. I gave my mare a pretty good work out and the sweat was nice and even. I think the pad I have works well, but I'll see what I find when I go shopping. Yeah! Shopping! Thanks for the info. I really didn't want to have to buy a pad that would get dirty too easily, like some of the English and Australian ones do.

I also like to use dressage pads. I have several different colors for when I feel like changing it up. For anything of any distance I use my Skito pad....I love it, kinda spends but worth every penny.
