Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: Bought this saddle on ebay in like new condition for less than $300.
Likes: I am updating the review I gave when I bought the saddle about 2 years ago. The saddle itself has held up very well. I have been on 4 hour trail rides and it is very comfortable. But I do use a fleece seat cushion, one reason is to save the suede seat. It's so light, easy to tack up and clean too.
Dislikes: It seems that the regular tree must have stretched, or flexed, because it now fits my very wide QH. I have no way of knowing what type of tree since I purchased it used on ebay. They should have added front D's for a breastcollar.
Quality: Entirely cordura except for the pommel and horn. The molded stirrups are plastic and I've added padded foot rests for comfort. The Abetta 15" seat seems to be made for a woman. My hubby says its too small for him, so he uses his 15" leather saddle.
Summary: Overall I like the saddle. My next saddle though will probably be a Lady Fabtron or a cordura saddle I found online from Scrugs Farm & Tack.
