Opinions on Abetta saddles..?

Alright. I was wondering what some different people's opinions are on Abetta synthetic saddles or just Abetta tack in general. Personally, I think they are ugly as all hell. The only one that I like, and the one I own, is:

Abetta All-Around Square Skirt - Regular Tree: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com

It is a great quality saddle, so I assume the others are too. I just do not like the way they look.

What about you guys?

Abetta is a Saddle that people either hate or love

Some people find them uncomfortable.

We have some that are over 16 years old and going strong.

Most people that have ridden in ours over the years have never complained about comfort. We find them comfortable.

They get dirty, just hose them off.

They are American Made and Inexpensive, a good combination.

I prefer them to the Wintec Westerns personally!

I had one I just sold that I found uncomfortable on a long ride. My husband has one he bought used that's probably 10 yo or older. He loves it, although he rides a leather saddle now. It was the first saddle we put on the fillies. Figured they couldn't hurt it too bad

I like them. I rode in one for a few minutes just to see the comfort level and loved it.

My fiance just LOVES them and finds that he gets sucked into the seat.

Though those are the endurance, we havent tried the western Abetta

I just got mine last year and it's been pretty good! I just use it for training and trail rides, but I love it

Abetta is very uncomfortable for me to sit in. I tried several models and each brought my legs very forward.

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE mine! They are the ONLY western saddle I will buy. I've had mine for... erm, prob since 1997 maybe 1998 and use it a LOT. I also have one in a larger size for friends/family, and everyone who's ridden in it loved it as well. I'm going to be buying an endurance one soon (just gotta get some spare cash and stop buying horses when I do lol)

I have only ridden in the Abetta endurance saddles, but I have found that they set my legs very far forward. My friend's have had them in the past, and claimed that they cause back pain over long distances/rides. :\
