Product Reviews by Customers

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Secure Western Saddle I was looking for a western style saddle that had a little extra to keep me seated when my horse spooks...he tends to get nervous at least once a ride which may involve simply stopping or could be a jump spin. This saddle allows me to relax for most of the ride as it keeps you back in the saddle when something unexpected happens. Nice saddle for the money. Fits my FQHB short backed horse fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Question about tree size I have a large TB with medium withers. Will this saddle fit him? What is meant by a B tree, re: T.A. from Grand Rapids? I love the saddle but need more idea of the fit before I order it.. June 17, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Saddle Very nice saddle. Would recommend it. I like that I can use the western girths and that there is no rubbing from the strap over the tree like on an aussie. Lighter than I expected too. Fits my B tree horses very well. Nice that the price dropped too, since I ordered it just outside the price guarantee time frame:) December 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT SADDLE I have owned this saddle now for 8 months. The saddle is all it is said to be. I use it for starting colts and it has worked out very well. It holds you in and gives you a very secure seat. The saddle is light wieght and fits well on all the horses I've had it on. I totally recomend this saddle. August 8, 2011

The weight of the saddle
Thomas L on Aug 19, 2015
need larger gullet and deep seat. price was a good value, product reviews were key as well as price for purchase.
DONNA M on Dec 20, 2014
The overall reviews were pretty good. I have a horse that doesn't like a western saddle and I don't always want to ride english. I also want a saddle that both my husband and I can fit into. This looks like it will fit the bill.
Margaret Y on Dec 30, 2014
I have one and my sister wanted one.
Bonnie W on Oct 3, 2014
I would love to buy this saddle,but would it fit an Arabian? she has a short back and narrow withers.My Kimberly stock saddle seems to fit her,but this saddle has a western look with the aussie features! So has anyone seen this saddle fit a little arab?
thanks so much!

A shopper on Sep 8, 2013
Best Answer: I bought this saddle for my Arabian mare who is extremely difficult to fit because she has a short back and is very barrel shaped. This is the first saddle that has seems to fit her well and that she seems to be comfortable with. It has a wide gullet area - about 7.5-8" which is what she needed. She does not have prominent withers. However, we have not had a chance to ride extensively with it yet, that's why I have not written an official review for Stateline Tack. The smallest size - the 17" is equivalent to about 16" western. I am a small person, 5'2" and 112 lbs. so it is larger than I would like it, but not large enough to send it back. I had to have the fenders shortened by a saddle guy. I love the saddle and hope that I will love it and my mare will too on long rides. Hope this helps.

I have a rather stocky round barreled quarter horse paint mare. Would this fit her size?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2015
Best Answer: If you use a western saddle with Full Quarter Horse Bars, I would be very hesitant to put this saddle on her because it comes with Semi-Quarter Horse Bars. Other than that, it is a great saddle, very comfortable and very LIGHT. I changed out the girth that came with the saddle to a "roper" girth but that is just my preference. I bought this saddle for my OTTB who has very high withers; however a western saddle with Semi-QH bars does fit him ok so that is why I bought this saddle.

I normaly take a size 15 in a western saddle and this saddle only comes in 17 or 18 why is that it does not come in smaller sizes?
lynn w on Feb 13, 2014
Best Answer: Hi Lynn, I am like you, and would take a 15, and some saddles a 14. I went a head and purchased the 17 because it is supposed to be the same as American Western 15. I love this saddle, and am so happy with it. Yes, I have a little extra room, but I'm fine with it. I am so pleased I purchesed it for my Tennesee Walker. Hopefully you'll feel the same!

Good Luck!

I am 5'3". Are the stirrups adjustable, or would this saddle fit me as is?
Laura E on Jan 6, 2014
Best Answer: Hi,
I have this saddle and it is totally adjustable.. I think that the original length 'as is' would fit someone 5'3. I'm 5'7 and it was a little short for me so I feel that you should be good with the length they are but you can adjust them easily.

if I use a 16.5 western saddle, what size would I need in this saddle?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: A 17 Australian size is a 15 American western size.

This saddle was sized a bit long for me. They have to consider an average rider.

A perfect fit for me would require a custom fit saddle and that's just not in my budget at this time.

Also, this saddle is as advertised, a "semi quarter horse".

Happy trails,

John Connor

Does this saddle have 2 D Rings or Cinch Rings don't know what you will call it?
Raye T on Jun 25, 2014
Best Answer: It has two, they are exactly like a regular western saddle and uses the standard western cinches. I love this saddle, it conforms to your body and you sit firmly and comfortably in the saddle.

I have two Standardbred geldings. High withers. Would this be a good fit for Standardbreds?
Fara Simpson on Mar 17, 2014
Best Answer: I use this saddle for ny western dressage classes, attractive, very comfortable and puts rider in good position. I use saddle on both of my horses,one is Arabian with wide flat back and other Quarter Horse with high withers fits nicely on both with some wedging for Arabian. Both of these horses I have had only custom made saddles due to not having good luck with over-the-counter saddles in past, so was much relieved that this saddle works for horses and rider.

I am a tall female, 6' and 160 lbs. My horse is a 16.3 Brazilian Warm blood. Would a size 18 work for my and horse and me?
Carole S on Aug 22, 2015
Best Answer: The saddle width is based on the width of your horse - wither height and how broad across the back. The saddle size, 16 or 17 or 18, etc. is based on your seat size. You sound tall and thin. An 18 may be way too large. Google up how to determine your saddle and seat size. If you ride english, the sizes don't convert to Aussie saddles. For that matter, neither do western seat sizes. There are plenty of websites that tell you how to figure out what size is right for you. I bought the 18- and it was WAY too large for me and I weigh about the same as you, a little more, and am several inches shorter.

Do you carry this saddle in black? I have seen it in black on other sites.
A shopper on Jan 2, 2015
Best Answer: I believe this is the only color in this style, there are other styles of Aussie's. This saddle is extremely comfortable and looks good on both our bay and black Morgan's. Fits well too.

Okay so I have 3 questions:
1. How wide is the gullet? I have seen this saddle for sale in 2 places one says it has an 8" the other a 6"? I have a gelding who needs the narrower of the 2.
2. What type of saddle pad would you recommend to go under it?
3. Is it measured like a typical Aussie saddle? Where if you are a 16" western then you will be an 18" in Aussie?
Jess M on Feb 4, 2015
Best Answer: Gullet: 6". Any Aussie saddle pad should work with this saddle. You do go up two sizes for the Aussie saddles.

Is this considered a close contact saddle?
andrea s on Apr 29, 2014
Best Answer: Not really a close contact saddle. Good feel thru the back but not close contact thru the shoulder. Very similar to a regular Aussi saddle.

will this fit a trakehner arabian cross? She is short backed with a narrow wither.
Marti F on Mar 7, 2014
Best Answer: It fits my barrel shaped, short backed Arabian Mare where nothing else I tried would. Since it's cut back nicely it has nice wither clearance. My girl is very round. She seems to really like this one. Hope this helps.
