    Is the horse you need the saddle for, the horse in your avatar?

    If you're able to ride an endurance-style saddle (no horn), I have an Am-Tech (American Saddlery) that might fit.

    There's nothing wrong with it, I have seven saddles covered, up in the attic, that will never get used again.

    I only want $150 PLUS shipping but again, it does not have a horn.

    It was originally for my Tennessee Walker that foundered last year. I had bought the saddle for another TWH, then ended up buying this horse a year later.

    I think it has a 16" seat, I'd have to re-measure. It's been kept covered in the attic since I bought it. I never leave saddles in the barn or horse trailer.

    The beauty of this saddle is that it weighs a whole 11 pounds

    With this saddle it would be sold with no return, however

    I'm in no hurry to sell anything in that attic but it really is stupid to have all those saddles and not use them.

    If you think this might be something that would work for you, PM me.

    I am second owner on an Orthoflex from the original company when R. L. Watson was making their trees but I need to get $1,500 out of that one. It would most likely also fit the horse in the avatar. For that kind of money, I would give the Buyer a two-week trial as long as they paid thru PayPal.

    No, the horse in my avatar is my mare. I'm saddle-shopping for my gelding. He's built very... round... and is a little high withered... and short-backed...

    I like your saddle, walkinthewalk, but I really prefer a western saddle with a horn (to hang things on, etc...).

    I'm also looking at Valley Head Saddlery in Ider, Alabama (makers of Circle M and Pro Series saddles). My mare's saddle is a Circle M and I would like to stay with those, if at all possible, due to how well it's held up and the quality is perfect for what I do (trail ride).

    Though, I am planning on trying a saddle out of my gelding this afternoon. It's an older Simco, and I like it, i'm just worried that it won't fit me if it fits him. It's like a 14 or 14.5 inch seat and I'm used to a 17 inch seat...

    Check out Abetta saddles, I've had one for 5+ years and although it's a little beat up it fits our horses and it is really comfortable. We got ours local but here's a website you can check out. ABETTA SYNTHETIC AND LEATHER WESTERN SADDLES, YOUTH SADDLES, AND HORSE TACK FROM THE SADDLE HOUSE

    EmilyJoy, thank you for that site! I like the saddles and they are definitely in my price range (though on the high end of my price range). I hadn't thought about checking out Abetta saddles. I thought... well, I don't know what I thought. I guess I have always head of Abetta in conjunction with synthetic and thought that it was a synthetic brand, lol... After my mare's western synthetic saddle stretched out and made her sore/gave her white spots on her withers, I won't even consider a synthetic saddle (unless I really, really, really like it)...

    But I like those saddles. If the Simco doesn't fit, I know what I will be looking at if I can't find a nice Circle M that fits.

    The saddle I have was worth every penny in my opinion. They have gaited saddles too, is that what you're looking for?
        03-07-2013, 11:05 AM
    I'm really not sure. My boy is a TWH, but he's not gaited nor is he really built much like a typical TWH (he's very round bodied, not tall and slender, lol). I have looked at a few gaited saddles, though, because I think one might be a bit more comfy in the shoulder area, but I'm not sure.

    I bought one for my daughter... I would NOT buy again. They are Very cheaply made. You would be be better off finding a good used saddle
    I got a Older simco saddle a year ago that is great for less that 400.00.
    Check tack stores and FB tack pages I bet you will find a great saddle there.
    I am looking at a circle Y one this weekend for my daughter that sells for 1400 but used I can get for 650.00

    Yeah, the Simco I'm going to try out later today is older, and would cost only a little over two-hundred dollars... though it needs a little bit of work done to it. After watching several saddle fit videos, I'm not all that sure that it does fit him right, but I'll figure it out later today. If it doesn't fit, then I'm not getting it anyway.
