Abetta endurance saddle
 
I'm looking at getting a new saddle for my new horse, cause my aussie is too wide and long for him. The abetta any good? He is a mustang with a short back, so would the Arabian abetta work better?

Abetta's are decent Saddle for the Money. We had one that lasted over 17 years.

As far as the Model, the Mustang we had took a regular 6.5" Gullet, although every mustang is different.

The Abetta Arabian is slightly wider than the 6.5" basic model, but not as wide as the full-Qh 7.0 gullet models.

Because of the Codura skirts I would not worry about any Abetta being too long for a Mustang.

I love my abetta western saddle. Mine has the arab bars for my arab and it was the only saddle in my budget that was short enough for my crazy short-backed horse. It fits him well, too. I also like how light it is and I'm comfy riding in it.

Love the Abetta Endurance, the Western styles not so much. I used them for my short backed Haffies, but I was looking for the widest they had most of the time.

Golden Horse, why don't you like the western style? Just curious, I promise.

I just didn't find it to be the same quality as the Endurance, and it was never as comfortable, so sold it again very quickly.
