For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Abetta
Model: Serenity/Trinity Endurance Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I had been thinking about getting a Reinsman for my paint mare, knowing their reputation of quality, craftsmanship, and comfort came unsurpassed. The only thing that was hindering my buying (and believe me, I almost bought one!) was the cost. I ant a comfortable trail saddle, but the economy isn't so great right now and like everyone I don't want to spend a lot of money. After reading the reviews on Horse Tack Review, where I rely almost weekly for reviews on horse products, I saw some raving reviews for the Serenity Endurance saddle, so I bought one from Green River Tack for $360 plus shipping.

Likes: I ride English and part of my hesitation with the western saddle was the bulky feel. I realized hat an endurance saddle would be right in the middle---it would give me support for the trail, but also give me greater feel of my horse and still allow me to go over smaller jumps, because there is no horn. When this saddle came, I fell in love with the first ride. The memory foam seat makes you feel like you're cheating and not even riding, it's so comfortable. It grips like crazy---my horse took a nose dive and it just felt like I was going down a steep embankment: I never even felt unsettled. It gives plenty of clearance for jumping up to 2 feet, maybe higher. The stirrups are padded for extra comfort. It fits well on both my paint pleasure-bred mare and even my warmblood stallion. It's easy to clean and weighs only 16 pounds.

Dislikes: If I have to sound picky, I'll say that the stirrup leathers (or whatever they're called on an endurance saddle) still have to be broken in like any saddle. They don't turn out very well until you take a few rides.

Quality: Comfy and nice. This saddle is easily worth what I would have been looking at for a used Reinsman saddle. It's easy to clean, sits balanced on all of my horses, and even looks attractive on a horse.

Summary: I should have been an Abetta rep, because I left the saddle with my trainers to use for lessons for a week and they told me I sold 3 saddles. From heavier riders to the girl they say is "60 pounds dripping wet," everyone sunk into the foam and fell in love with the saddle. You won't believe the comfort and stability of this saddle, and for the price (!). Your first ride will sell you, even when the saddle is new, because there's not much to "break-in." Order 1 seat size larger than normal, because the memory foam is thick and comfy. Move aside Crosby; I LOVE my Crosby but this one has been winning out lately, even for my "English" rides!
