All of my belongings were lost in a Barn fire 3 weeks ago. Replacing saddle that I had before.
Pam B on Nov 27, 2018
Bought my first Abetta about 20 years ago and have loved it. After hundreds (maybe thousands) of hours on trails time for a new one.

I hope it fits my hard to fit horse and it is light weight.

Rated #1 in the horse trail riders edition. Light weight for us both. Arabs are on the small side and could use a nice light saddle that will lasts a lifetime.
Les F on Apr 17, 2018
I wanted a good quality and light weight saddle.
Linda C on Feb 16, 2018
Light weight and great reviews.
Joanne L on Sep 28, 2015
I have a new horse and my old saddle does not fit her. The horse is wide and has a very short back. I tried a friend's Abetta on her and it fit perfectly. Can't beat the price and my friend's experience other reviews are good.
Tammy D on Jul 23, 2015
Light weight, short length in skirt 19" , hopefully room for high withers
Kristy W on May 8, 2014
Bought it because I needed a lightweight, inexpensive, high cantle traiil saddle. Thought it would fit my horse, but he actually needed full QH bars, so I ordered the Big Horn full QH trail saddle instead.
Patricia G on Jan 17, 2014
My horse needs a lighter saddle.
MYRNA M on Dec 16, 2013
I have a draft abetta saddle and love it! So after reading the reviews of this saddle I decided to purchase it for my quarter horse.

Christmas gift for my Wife.

Does this fit horses with high withers?
S B on May 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This item comes with Semi-Quarter Horse bars.
What is the shortest length stirrup for the 13" saddle?
ANGELA P on Apr 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, that is not a standard measurement. All stirrups are adjustable and can have additional holes added if needed.
I'm trying to get saddles for my young daughters. Deciding between Abetta and Big Horn synthetic. Which has the shortest stirrups?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2014
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!
Does this saddle do well on wide-withered horses?
Leanna on Mar 22, 2015
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 it have breast collar rings?
bonnie s on Sep 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no. unfortunately not. however, FWIW, I have been EXTREMELY happy with mine!
How do I attach a breast collar to it?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can attach the breast collar directly to the latigo rings near the front of the saddle.
Are the stirrups plastic ??
annie o on Jul 3, 2015
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.
how do you clean these cordova saddles?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I use a clean brush and clean soapy water...condition any part that is not fabric / nylon
Iam 5'11 and. 125lbs what size seat do i need and is the stirrups gonna be long enough for me?
Polly M on Nov 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 15 inch. I am 5'11 and ride a 15. Your small frame would allow a 14 but the stirrups may not be long enough.
Is the seat suede or smooth on this saddle?
A shopper on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The seat is suede on the one I bought.
Would this saddle fit an Arabian?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it fits my very typically built Arab gelding. It is an extremely comfortable saddle that I use for both endurance style and western pleasure riding. No problems with rubbing or pinching with a light high quality blanket. Super lightweight to handle. I feel this saddle is an excellent value!
Im 5' 2'' and 87 pounds would 14 fit me?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe so. I am 5'3"- 123 lbs and and I ride the 15" seat. Saddle feels sturdy, comfortable and has held up to endurance training on an Arab who likes to throw me curves ;) Enjoy.
Does this saddle have a Flexible tree?
Jan H on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it has a regular Ralide tree. Abetta does, however, offer a number of saddles that DO have flex trees, just type "Abetta flex" into our Search bar to see all your options.
I'm a 5'10", 175 lb male. 16 or 17 inch seat?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'd suggest the 17". I'm 5'4", 115 lb female and the 16 fits me nicely. I've had someone use my 16" saddle that was about your size but we both agreed it was a tad small. Hope this helps! GREAT saddle!
Does this saddle come with the rigging to attach the cinch?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does. The rigging is nylon, rather than leather.
I have a high withered thoroubred. Will this saddle fit well?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It should, I have a high withered horse(Tenn. Walker) and it fits fine.
Does saddle runs small? My leather saddle has a 15'' seat, would it be the same in synthetic ?
annie o on Aug 12, 2015
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?
A shopper on Sep 29, 2013
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!
What is the skirt length on the 16 inch seat?
SassyWelshMare on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: 23"Long
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.
June H on Aug 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not have anyone that reads wither tracings. However, most saddle manufacturer's will!
