I have two Abetta trail saddles and like them very much but because of arthritis in my hips I need to lean over the pommel to swing my leg over to dismount and the horn prevents me from doing this..
Elizabeth H on Sep 19, 2018
I have been riding in my friend's Abetta Serenity Endurance saddle and love it, however it is on backorder for 4 to 6 weeks.. so I bought this one instead. I'm sure it'll be just as great after I add a seat cushion.

I already have an Abetta saddle for trail riding. They are the MOST comfortable saddle for me and my horse. I am spoiled now and don't care to ride with anything else! I purchased a second one for family and friends to use when they ride with me.
Susan S on Feb 23, 2018
Reviews were positive. price was good.
Sharon H on Mar 17, 2017
I chose this saddle because I am a mounted archer. There are several features that make it ideal for the discipline. The cordura is sticky, important with the dynamics of MA. The stirrups make great platform for shooting/standing. No horn, just gets in the way. Lightweight, affordable.
Lisa B on Jun 9, 2016
Need a lighter saddle to allow my horse to feel comfortable on long rides. Researched this brand and found it met my needs. Can't wait to try it.

How are these saddles with high withers?
A shopper on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: So far so good! My horse has high withers but I put the saddle just behind them and with my weight in the saddle there is still clearance between his back and the saddle. Very pleased with how this saddle fits both myself and my horse.
How much does this saddle weigh?
Lita H on Apr 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 18 lbs.
DOES
FULL QUARTER HORSE BARS MEAN 7 IN GULLET?
WHAT SIZE GULLET IS FULL QUARTER HORSE BARS SADDLE. I NEED A 7 1/4 GULLET
A shopper on Apr 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This saddle has a 6.5" gullet width and 22.25" length bars.
What size do I need? I am 5'4", 130 lb, 52 year old woman. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
A shopper on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5'4" also but about 20 pounds heavier. I like a nice roomy seat but would think a 15" or 16" would work for you. This is such an excellent saddle and I hope you enjoy it as much as I am.
I have a large Appendix mare, when the endurance saddle is on and girth is snug, should you be able to fit 2 fingers under the second opening by the seat?
Karen F on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That's how this saddle fits my horse as well. It's the tree of the saddle that rests on the horse. Also the girth position on this saddle is different. It's farther back. It took me awhile to get use to but my horse never had an issue with it. When I take the saddle pad off, his back is evenly wet so I used that to judge the fit as well. My horse is a 15.1 TWH with high withers.
how many inches is the gullet width?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Quarter Horse bars with 6 1/2" gullet.
What is the skirt size on the 17" saddle?
Kloe W on May 24, 2018
I have a 16'2" Morgan and need a wide saddle. Is the Abetta wide?
Renie on Nov 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would say yes. It fits my fat mutton withered quarter horse perfectly.
I am considering buying the 15 inch brown, i need to know if the stirrups will go up short enough for me as i am only 5 feet tall My horse is a morab cross and will it fit his size
14-2?
Joyce w on Feb 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am 5 feet 2 in. and was able to adjust the stirrup for my heigth, however, I changed the stirrups to regular trail riding ones, since I am not an endurance rider and wasn't comfortable with the large ones the saddle comes with. I think it is probably a better saddle for a smaller horse like your 14.2 one, I had bought it for my 16.2 TB and didn't think it was a good fit for him. I did use it on my 15.h quarter horse, and it fit her better. I didn't find it comfortable for me for regular trail riding, but for endurance and more standing/forward position, it may be better
size -what does 15, 16, and 17 mean?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The numbers indicate the size in inches between the inside of the pommel to the inside of the cantle- basically the seat. 15.5 to 16 is about average. Happy trails!
how much does it weigh?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Can't remember exactly- as the saddle did not fit my horse and had to be returned, however, it was not heavy at all. Abetta saddles are
All pretty light weight! Used to have an abetta endurance saddle that I wore out. Easy to clean and not too heavy....good saddle for the price.....
Does it come with swivel stirrups? Description says it, but picture looks like regular ones.
A shopper on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are regular. And really, swivel stirrups aren't really necessary with these stirrup leathers as they are narrow and flexible. They turn very easily. I've never had a twist problem.
I'm considering the brown color saddle, but the picture only shows the black saddle. Is the seat on the brown saddle the same color or a contrasting color, and is it synthetic or suede? Thanks!!
Missy W on Jun 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The seat is black, as is the trim on the saddle. A very nice contrast. The seat is synthetic, gets a little warm at times, but is really comfortable.
Is the seat size equivalent to an English or Western saddle?
Patricia M on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is like a western saddle size....but a 16" fits like a 15"due to the padded seat. I purchased a 16" which usually fits me,but it is too small....want to buy it? Lol
does this saddle have d rings for breast collar?
Catherine E on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it has D rings for a breast collar. It's a really nice lightweight saddle. I'm very pleased with how it is working out for me and my horse.
Is this a flex tree?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the flex model is called "Abetta Serenity Flex Endurance".
Does the seat on this saddle fit true to size? It does not look as thick as the Sublime model... Thanks!
Kylie L on Feb 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That one picture looked wierd to me, like the seat was too thick. But mine feels just perfect to sit in. Same as the ones I have bought in past years.
what type of girth is used with this saddle?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It uses a Western style cinch.
I have a paso fino short back with good withers and she is in shape horse should this fit her?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have three of these for three different horses all with different body types (typical QH, flat-shoulder low withers, and curvy chubby Arab), and it fits all three well. We use a good pad with grip and they all do well. It's been very versatile for us for saddle horses (haven't used on our drafts).
I have always ridden in a saddle seat saddle. Looking at getting the Abetta Endurance saddle. Can anyone give me a idea of how I choose the size 15,16 or 17? I'm roughly 5"6 and 145lbs. Any comments would be greatly appreciated... Thanks
Kelly Y on Mar 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Western saddles are sized differently, they are larger than english so a 15 or 16" would be OK for you, you're almost exactly my size and I just bought the 16", its about right, its not tight or too long either.

Would this saddle fit a lower-withered horse that is about 13.3h? Lots of the reviews mentioned higher withered horses.
A shopper on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For this items measurement please start from buttress line to the toe, then compare with size chart I have listed below.
https://www.statelinetack.com/ContentFiles/Sizing_Charts/E024609.JPG
Will this saddle fit a little 13.2 narrow, short backed Paso Fino? I need something lightweight and for his high withers.
Janet M on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think it could....if you can get it small enough. I am returning mine- won't fit my halflinger/paint 14.2 mare....but it is a great saddle- I have used them before. Comfortable, light, you can hose it off. I bought it for long trail rides and endurance rides....
Would this work for a paso fino?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Goodness, I really can't answer that.
I use mine on my Lipizzan horses for mounted archery. They have fat round, shorter backs with generous shoulder. It fits very well and is super balanced and comfortable. I will likely buy another one. Good luck.
what is the return policy?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2016
