Triton Australian outrider saddle

Is anybody on this forum familiar with a Triton Outrider Australian stock saddle. One is being advertised for a very decent price in our local farmers weekly magazine, but have never heard of this make? Does it come with English or Western rigging? Any info would be much apreciated.

I am not familiar w it...but then, its not my specialty.

I have an ausie, made in austrialian made by A.M. King. I really like it, its really well made. Number one question for me personally is - country of origin? If it isn't Australia or US, I don't want it.

Anyway, they generally come w one of two types of rigging. I do not know the proper names, but I am sure they are on the net. I prefer mine which - instead of having a cinch attach to a latigo on either side, it has a leather that feeds through the cinch all the way around. The other option, I don't care for, is like an english cinch only it has 4 buckles and is, in general, wider - to each his own. I have seen western retro fits on them, I would prefer that even more! AND, if you are short...you really want to pay attention to the design of the stirrup leathers. Mine are straight (like an english saddle's only heavier), so endless possibilities for shortening them, however, if the leathers are somewhat like a western fender - the amount you can shorten them is limited, to say the least - but they come in different lengths - ya just have to know that "going in".

Have fun!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
