Product Summary:

Down Under Kimberley Synthetic Endurance Saddle without Horn 
Beauty meets function… meets value! The intelligently designed Kimberley Synthetic Endurance Saddle from Down Under will impress even the skeptics. The suspended seat and smooth poleys on an Australian saddle offer superior comfort and a balanced secure ride. Plenty of dee rings and adjustment points make for a great trail or working saddle. Crafted of the highest quality synthetic leathers for easy maintenance and durability with long-lasting equi-suede on the seat and poleys that won’t lose its nap or grip.  The heart of this light weight endurance styled saddle is the same sturdy wood and steel tree that is in the rest of the Kimberley models. The saddle is made of a woven synthetic material, with synthetic suede seat, poleys, and wear patches for extra grip. Nubuck trim on the back of the cantle. Saddle comes with billets so no overgirth is required.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by awesome saddle Got this saddle to be an everyday rider and it looks like it will fit the bill. Not to many frills but well made and looks good. Sugie likes the fit. Comes with a jam up girth. I did replace the stirrups with some aluminum ones because I wanted wider ones, but they are fine. I liked the large poleys which seemed too big at first but helps out alot if you like to ride hard. It's not a cadilac, but a jeep. Well pleased and will buy another leather fancy one later for Sunday riding. July 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Saddle I love the light weight and fantastic comfort of this saddle. All my tack is synthetic and I have never been disappointed. No worries about getting wet, nice look, great overall saddle. My horse also is happy with this saddle. I have used the heavy all leather ausie before and this is hands down better for me!!! Would have liked english style irons. A+ saddle May 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! These are much better in person than photos show.The material is very hardcore, seat is padded, nylon straps all very nice. Flaps are short like an all purpose, is mono-flapped. Very nice saddle- can't wait to get a stock model too now! January 17, 2011

To help me stay on my naughty gelding who has learned that bucking lessens our desire to ride him

The stirrup leathers slide off of the hooks. The pollies rubbed my horse's shoulder and caused the hair to start to turn white. I was very dissatisfied.

Wide tree for large horse, plus comfort for the rider.
Donald M on Oct 23, 2015
I read the reviews and they were very positive, so I thought I'd try this saddle out for myself.

Can you switch out the nylon leathers for tradition English leathers?
Darla N on Oct 13, 2013
Best Answer: Yes you can, however, I would recommend something like wintec webbers. Or you could configure the traditional leathers to have the buckle by your ankle. If you are in a saddle that fits you, the buckle may pinch/rub your thigh.

What is the weight of this saddle?
dianne m on Oct 6, 2014
Best Answer: I purchased a Black Down Under Kimberly Synthetic Endurance Saddle wide tree without horn. The weight unfitted was approximatly 15 pounds. I tucked the flaps beneath and was able to store saddle, stirrups, multiple girths, cloth pad and other items in a suitcase on my trek to Mongolia in 2013. The saddle fit the smaller Mongolian horse well and provide great support for me.t

If I ride a 171/2 close contact saddle, what size would be appropriate in this saddle?
A shopper on Sep 23, 2015
Best Answer: A close contact saddle usually means English? If you ride a 17.5 English, you would probably take a size 16.5 Australian (1 inch size smaller). Generally that size is for women 120-140 lbs, pants size 6-8, or, men 130-160 lbs pants size 32-34.

Would this saddle work for a typical gaited horse?

I have a quarter horse that requires a 32" girt with his western saddle. What size girt should I order for this saddle as I suspect the 22" will be too small?
A shopper on May 19, 2015
Best Answer: Australian girths on the average run about 3 inches longer than Western cinches for the same horse.

Hello. I just got this saddle in a 17" but it is really too big for my small horse. Can I trade this for a 15 or 16"? Otherwise I really like it.
Christine S on May 2, 2015
Best Answer: The seat size shouldn't make a difference on how the saddle fits your horse, it may make it a bit to long on her back, so I would maybe go down to a 16 if your butt fits in it, there should be a few inches between the swell and your thigh. Take a wire hanger mold of your horses withers and send it in and they can tell you what size to get her. This has been the most comfortable saddle I have EVER had and I love it!! Hope you can get it to work for you
