What saddle do you ride in?
Hi Gaited horse owners!
Just wondering how many of you ride in an AUSSIE saddle??
More specific, A Downunder saddle.

Any fans?

Would love if you posted pics :)

I've had a DownUnder Saddle for about 4 years now...

Love it for trails...I bought it as I was (am) a beginner rider. It is very secure and very comfortable

They do tend to move your legs forward a bit though.

For me the Aussie saddle is a "blister rig." Literally. They put me into an uncomfortable position and I don't like them at all.

But, while I might swear at them many others swear by them.

Try before you buy.

CAGLOVER: wow, what a horse! You don't look so bad on him either :D lol

Guilherme: My friend brought her down under aussie saddle over for me to try and I just LOVED it! So did my foxtrotter... so I ordered one :) Except 1 seat size smaller.

anyone else?

I also have a Aussie (pics on another computer) and LOVE it!

Kimberly my only beef with it is that is really heavy so my next one I actually buy (did trade out work for this one) will be lighter and no horn.

Idrivetrotters...with a name like that you must have Standardbreds!

Horsecrazy4ever - Match is something special, to be sure!
