19" black synthetic Aussie saddle used twice NICE SADDLE!

Hey gals (and guys). I have a real nice black 19" Aussie synthetic saddle for sale. It is the one they sell for 295. On their web site. It is a cute, black well made saddle, very comfy, very secure seat, but alas it does not fit the horse I bought it for (though it fits everyone else LOL)
It only does not fit intended horse because she is a very short backed Arabian and it's too long. The saddle is in like new condition, it has been used for 2 short 30 minute rides. Its a nice introduction to the Aussie saddles for a cheap price. It is waterproof of course and overall a pretty nice little saddle.

If hyou are looking for a larger size comfy saddle that will help you stick with a spooky horse this saddle is awesome! It has a suede type seat that is very "grippy" and that in combination with the poleys will really help y ou keep your seat with a spooky, fresh, or green horse.

Honestly I loved this saddle but the truth is, I have WAY too many saddles and since this one does not really work for the horse it was bought for it needs to find a new home. I'm hoping to get 150. Plus shipping for it. Make me an offer :)
Thanks for looking.

I think its a medium

it is a 19" medium (i think just the standard "medium") where exactly would I measure the gullet? I'm happy to do it just not exactly sure how :) like I said it fit several horses that I tired it on but its too long for a short backed horse :) My TB has high withers and it fit him fine but I have a nice used stubben for him that fits like a glove. It fit the arab good upfront but was too long in the seat and seemed to extend back on her back too far. (like past the last rib)

There is a LOT of info on these saddles on their web site. Google down under saddle supply. (forgot the exact website) its the synthetic trail saddle it was 299 when I bought it I think they may be 289 now.
It is pretty comfy too I just have 6 saddles for 4 horses and my hubby says that this is getting Ridicules that I need to get rid of the ones that we are not using LOL.

It comes with a 32" soft and comfy neoprene girth that fit my 14.2 hh Arab and my 17hh Warmblood so it's very adjustable. And the brass irons (which are an upgrade) and their nylon "leathers" so it's ready to ride. The only thing I'd do is switch to regular English type leathers. I hate those nylon ones.....

You know that is 19 aussi which is the same as 17 western? That saddle will fit a horse that has a bit of withers, probably not a draft or a wide flat backed QH. It will also work well on a TWH. I have a leather one with a similar tree. I upgraded when I got more serious though. I don't get the "too long part" Sadlde generally doesnt get much shorter than that and I am using one specifically on a horse that had back issues from long saddles.

Hey Joe4D I have an Arabian with a really short back. The saddle is just too long for her back. I have a 17.5 Jefferies english jumping saddle that fits her much better. Its like the saddle extends too far onto her back and it's hitting her in that dibit where the spine on the back and the spine of the rump hook together. Don't know what that spot is called but your saddle is not supposed to be sitting past the last rib was what I have been told :) the saddle fits her in the shoulders and otherwise just fine.....

I know exactly what you mean, that's what western saddles do to my horse. I have an all leather saddle same tree same size and design as yours and it fits my horse perfectly.

Yes i like the Aussie saddles

I just went saddle buying crazy and need to get rid of the ones that are not being used. I have a very limited space in the house for my horse tack and I have saddles coming out my ears!! LOL
