I have a Pathfinder and I love it!!! But then I have had several Abettas and have liked everyone of them. The Pathfinder is the best so far. It has lots of ties and rings for attaching saddle bags and what ever else you need. I have had mine for about 3/4 years now and it is holding up well. I put alot of miles on it.

Thanks for the tip, I am going to need a new one by next year so I saved it to my favorates! I am not sure what size I would need though. The one I have now is a 15 I think but it doesnt seem small by anymeans. 15 is the smallest they have listed so I am wondering if there sizes run smaller and I would need to go bigger. And would it fit my horse. Buying a saddle is kinda scarry for me. :(

I'm pretty sure that they run normal, I think they're just extra limited for some reason..I thought it was weird too. But the one we purchased seems true to size

You should try sitting in it! I swear that it's played a part in making my mom more comfortable riding her horse. She's always struggled with fear issues with horses, and she's so much more confident lately. I swear it just makes you feel like you're riding on a big pillow, it's very comforting

I just bought an abetta barrel racing saddle. Its going to be here anytime tomorrow!!!!

But anyways, I know what you mean about how it can be scary buying a saddle. I don't have much money right now as it is, but Horseloverz.com has a good return policy if for some reason it doesnt fit your horse, or you, and they are very well priced! You should give them a look!

I think my dressage saddle is the most comfy trail riding saddle, or my collegiate all purpose because it was extra squishy. I don't like riding in a western saddle for more than an hour because my butt and ankles start to hurt, but maybe I just haven't been riding in the right western saddles.

I think I may just have to take you up on your advice! I like the stirrup concept, I have serious problems with my knees, and it all seems to be stirrup related. As soon as I'm in the saddle for more then a few hours, I'm in agony. I'm convinced it's the angle of the twist, and I've been interested for awhile in trying something new in hopes to aleviate the problem.

I love my Western to death, but it's sure no long distance saddle.

Definitely not! Grr if I could only get you in this saddle! Haha
I have a dressage friend who felt just the same way but we sat her in this saddle and her mind was changed pretty quickly =P

I think you will be very satisfied if you choose this saddle! The stirrups were a bit stiff when we first bought it, but that's pretty normal, and with a little water and a broomstick through the stirrups overnight we were good to go
