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!!

I definitely would take Abetta over some other brands. Those I tried didn't put me in correct position (but to each own since everyone built differently), but personally I think it's a decent saddle.

Just curious, how much is he asking? Abettas are on cheap side even new.

Thanks for the input, good to know=)! He hasn't given me a price yet, but I did some research and noticed they are on the more inexpensive side, but he seems like a fair man, I don't expect he'll be unfair, I'll find out more on Tuesday!

It's nice and light weight, dirty, but that's an easy fix ;)!!

I have one and love it. It's my trail saddle and holds up to a lot of hard riding.

I really like how easy they are to clean.

Hope you'll get a good deal on it though! :) As for cleaning, that's a big advantage of the synthetic saddles: they are easy to clean and just do general maintenance. Good luck!

My only complaint was the height of the horn as I'm used to a low roping horn.

For the money Abetta's are great saddles, we have one that is 17 years old and another 14 years old, they have held up extremely well considering the abuse they get .....lol...

*update* he is asking 275 for it, it has had 10 or less rides on it, I rode in it today (so excited about riding my new horse for the first time) and I liked it! I checked out the under "fleece" and it looked new. I'm thinking about going for it, I need to practice a lot before I invest in a more expensive saddle and for the price and condition will serve me well for what I am using it for =)

Scruggs Farm has one of Abettas very popular models at 284.00 for a 16" seat.

275.00 for used?, even 10 rides is very high, unless it is one of Abettas 400.00 models.... imo

Maybe post pictures, or get a model name?
Like SouthernTrails said, that's very high unless it is one of the more expensive models.
