Saddle brands? What's good and what's not?
Ok, we've been having some trouble with saddles as of late and I want to buy a good saddle but not sure what brands are considered great/good and poor/bad.
We have an Abetta 16" that I ride in and I love it. Its comfortable, its stable and it fits the horse great.
We bought a synthetic 17" that I think its a piece of junk. It seems to go up high in the cantle area and sits lower and snugger towards the pommel. I don't like it at all, it wouldn't sit flush, won't stay put and you constantly have to adjust yourself in it.
The other saddle we have is a 15" leather that the cinch connection literally came apart its first time on a horse. It was used so we're just out the money there. Glad that happened before we were riding in it.
So we're looking for a saddle to put on a wide quarter horse for trail riding purposes and 17" in seat size. Anyone have a saddle like that that they absolutely love that could recommend a brand? My husband will probably need a padded seat too, he's got a bad back.
