Question Ordering Online a Saddle or Having one Made?

I need a western saddle for my pony. I do barrel racing but I do trail riding and other things with him so I would like a multi-purpose saddle. I also want some lightweight and can stand a lot of rain and a humid environment as I live in the tropics.

I can get one made out of leather but have been thinking of other options. I was thinking of ordering online as I have a hard time finding tack for sale where I am. Just worried it might not fit him once I get it. Do you have any recommendations on what kind of saddle or site I could order from that would ship to the Philippines?

Thanks :)

Wintec, a smooth synthetic would likely be your best bet. Do check their web site.

Thank you. I have, problem is no stock sites in the Philippines. They have ones in neighboring countries but they don't ship. :/

My daughter and I both use our barrel racing saddles for trail riding. No reason why you can't.

Abetta makes synthetic Western saddles. Not sure about getting it to you, but you could try several websites.

customize your saddle

You might want to go in the treeless or the flextree saddle direction.

Hilason saddles are Asian junk. They may be assembled in the USA, by foriegn workers, but their materials all come from overseas. They're not worth buying, new or used.

Abetta makes quality USA made saddles. I have one that is 7 years old and still going strong. The web site buyabetta.com will help you with fitting before you buy, so you don't end up paying shipping back and forth for saddles that don't fit your pony right.

Let us not use border to classify quality. For those that do not know, even apple's iphone and ipad are made in china- a place known for asian junk. If Hilason does make the saddles in Asia, there is nothing wrong iwth it and if they did that here, they would surely be charging premium rates on that. Why don't we understand that? Besides, I have seen a common notion that a lot of people start speaking against something without even experiencing it by themselves. When someone praises a product, others think that the person might be working for that company. Let us understand that this is a community and not a bashing center.

It's not meant to be bashing, just more of a concern for safety and quality. I know this was asked in the other thread, but I thought I'd ask again: Do you work for Hilason? You said you did not, but it would appear you have some kind of connection to this brand. Do you own one personally that you think they're so fantastic?
