Most comfortable trail saddle by a mile

I'm just so excited about this saddle that I want everyone to know about it. I'm always surprised that more people don't have it!

It's the Abetta Brushpopper




It's a lot like the Abetta Pathfinder, but it has this REALLY padded memory foam seat, and paired with its padded endurance stirrups, it is by far the most comfortable saddle I have ever tried (and I've tried all of those expensive Circle Y trail saddles, while they were comfortable, they were no comparison)

It's lightweight (19 pounds) easy care because it's cordura and only $413-$455 at the Buy Abetta website at Abetta Brushpopper Trail Saddle


Just thought I'd drop by and advertise

I'm trying to decide between this one and an Australian Stock saddle. I've always loved corduras... so easy to take care of and you can go for rides in the water without worrying as much

what's the weight & price tag on that abetta? My mom (61) wants a synthetic & I don't know where to start (I'm a rawhide or fiberglass covered wood tree kinda girl, and synthetics just don't come with that.)

I LOVE my Abetta, and it's just the non-padded saddle! :) I'm going to be getting the Trinity (aka Serenity) endurance one though and can't wait :) That might be a bad thing though... my Fell requires a wider saddle than my other horses, so the Endurance one will be for him... I'll probably love it so much I'll have to buy a second one for the other horses lol!

If it's not made of leather, you really can't call it a saddle. :) (just kidding).

Seriously - I guess you can consider that comfortable for casual riding. But for hard riding or a long day in the saddle, I have always found synthetics can be very un-comfortable.

Of course, we are all built differently and one size doesn't fit all.

I don't think of Abettas as being synthetic, really. They're made of cordura (nylon), leather, and neoprene. I definitely wouldn't want to be sitting in my

I think it looks comfy with that cushy seat and padded stirrups & I love the fact that it's only 19 lbs. I just hate to spend that much money online because it is such a pain to send back if it isnt what I expect. I wish there were a tack store here that carried them so I could check it out in person!

Yeah I definitely agree..when we bought it we couldn't find anyone anywhere who said anything about it or that had even heard of it. It was a bit of a risk, but I'm glad we took it and now I'm trying to spread the word wherever I can. =)
