Why did you choose this?
Does this saddle do well on wide-withered horses?
Best Answer: If you mean a horse that needs a gullet or tree that fits wider than a typical "regular" tree, or a horse that has mutton-withers, this saddle will not fit. The gullet opening is too narrow, and the front of the saddle tree will pinch the the shoulder, causing pain and restricted movement, and the saddle will have a tendency to roll. Wintec and Big Horn make a higher quality lightweight synthetic saddle, and I know that Wintec makes at least one model in a Wide with a square skirt. See if they also have wide in the round skirt. The downside of the Wintecs several years ago was that the fenders were so stiff, you needed stirrup turners. Maybe they've fixed that. If Big Horn makes a wide, that would also be a good alternative - their trees in the synthetics are the same ones they use in their expensive leather saddles.
Does this fit horses with high withers?
Best Answer: This item comes with Semi-Quarter Horse bars.
What is the shortest length stirrup for the 13" saddle?
Best Answer: Unfortunately, that is not a standard measurement. All stirrups are adjustable and can have additional holes added if needed.
how do you clean these cordova saddles?
Best Answer: I use a clean brush and clean soapy water...condition any part that is not fabric / nylon
I'm trying to get saddles for my young daughters. Deciding between Abetta and Big Horn synthetic. Which has the shortest stirrups?
Best Answer: I bought the Abetta because it's incredibly light and comfortable. I'm 5'1" and use the second to the shortest stirrup length option. I love this saddle!
Is the seat suede or smooth on this saddle?
Best Answer: The seat is suede on the one I bought.
Are the stirrups plastic ??
Best Answer: Yes, the stirrups are plastic. Though this is not my favorite feature of the saddle, I otherwise love it as does my horse.
Does this saddle come with the rigging to attach the cinch?
Best Answer: Yes, it does. The rigging is nylon, rather than leather.
Does saddle runs small? My leather saddle has a 15'' seat, would it be the same in synthetic ?
Best Answer: My 13" saddle measures 13" from the inside swell to the rise of the inside cantle. It is not as deep as I am used to so it feels a little different than my leather Western Saddle, but I cannot say it runs smaller just that the pocket is not as deep.
I am 5'5" and 130#, average length legs. Would 15" fit me best?
Best Answer: I bought this saddle in May and I LOVE IT! It's built well and is very light weight. I am 5'4" and 190#. I bought the 17" so I'm sure the 15" would fit you fine. Enjoy!
How do I attach a breast collar to it?
Best Answer: There are no small D rings on the front of the saddle, only the larger rings for the latigos. I'm not sure how attaching a breast collar to those rings would work out. This might not be the best saddle for use with a breast collar.
I have a high withered thoroubred. Will this saddle fit well?
Best Answer: Gullet: Regular Tree - 6 Â½â€ W x 7 Â¼â€ H
Bars: Regular Tree - Semi-Quarter Horse bars.
does it have breast collar rings?
Best Answer: no. unfortunately not. however, FWIW, I have been EXTREMELY happy with mine!
my horses are 16-17 year old paso fino's (narrow back, high wither) and I need a cordura saddle for hot, damp, salt air near the beach, so less metal is better. Is there anywhere I can send a tracing of their backs in order to pick the right saddles? I need 2.
Best Answer: Unfortunately, we do not have anyone that reads wither tracings. However, most saddle manufacturer's will!
