what is your experience with Abetta saddles?
Hi, I purchased a horse about a month ago and don't have a saddle yet. The man I am taking lessons from has a sythetic Abetta saddle he has offered to sell to me if I want it. We tried it on my horse got her sweaty and there were no dry spots so it seems to be a good fit, I haven't ridden my horse yet so I haven't sat in the saddle so that part is yet to be decided. I have never ridden in/owned a synthetic saddle so I was wondering what people thought/opinions were on them? How do they hold up over time? Also the straps are nylon I believe, not leather (can't remember the proper name), I have zero experience in the "synthetic" field! I'm not too concerned with looks or anything at this time, I have lots of practicing/work to do with my horse before I get to that level, also he hasn't told me a price yet, saddle looks to be in good shape it's just dirty!!
