To show in synthetic in very taboo. Almost frowned uppon. But trail riding in a synthetic saddle is very smart Extremely easy to clean.

I never understood why showing in synthetic was frowned upon.

If the saddle has little to no wear on it I would get it, if not, I'd just hunt around for one elsewhere like . I actually bought mine for $100 dollars shipping and all. The girl bought it for her husband and he quit riding after a month, when I got it was rather ugly, full of dust and hair but in perfect condition otherwise. I gave it a good cleaning with a damp rag and vacuumed the crap out of it and it looked brand new. I really love my saddle, it is easy to clean, light and it fits my horse VERY well and he's rather odd to fit.

it's brand new from a local tack shop. Never been used at all.
So do you think that $625 is a good price then?

I personally think Fabtron is the best synthetic western saddle ever made.

John Lyons (the best horseman all around for me) rated it #1.


I think that is a rather good price.
But do your research. Look around on the internet for the same saddle and weigh shipping and handling fees/cost of saddle versus other prices. Once you pay shipping and handling fees that discount goes right back to the original price! In most cases.


Here is one for $589.

Don't stress so much about color.....you pay more for a synthetic saddle because of its color/name brand than anything else. If it is durable and trustworthy and the price is right (when you have a budget) you can over come the color. Especially, if you are just using it for trails. Of course if you are showing in Western then a synthetic saddle is completely out of the question. I was docked several points for using a synthetic leather breast strap when my real leather one needed some work......I found out later of course, but hey judges are funky like that. I didn't think you could tell the difference!

Go for it. They are great saddles and easy to sell. If its not what your looking for, you can ebay it for about 600 and collect up that extra 25 w/ shipping charges.
