I purchased this saddle as I am looking for a lightweight alternative to my 35 lb saddle, the reviews were good, and I'm hoping it fits my horse. Additionally, the same saddle is much more expensive elsewhere.
Christina L on Jul 22, 2018
I like Aussie saddles and the one I have is a wide frame. I needed a normal frame. I like this saddle but the stirrups are wonky and the stirrup leathers are too wide to fit thru the hole.

I was trained english growing up, but now want a sturdy trail saddle to trail ride that is not so bulky as a western saddle.

I have a gaited horse and chose the no horn for steep mountain riding. The reviews were good on it.

Is this 17" aussie the equivalent of a 15" western?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2015
what country makes your austrailian outrider saddle? what country makes the Kimberly brand austrailain saddle
trhoak on Jan 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Both these brands have most of their saddles made in India.
How much does this saddle weigh?
jim k on Mar 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Weight: 20 lbs
what size should i order if i normally ride in a 15 western?
martha o on Mar 26, 2016
Are the panels wool or foam?
R C on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe they are a wool felt over a firm foam. The underside is more like an English saddle than western.
What's the return policy for this saddle?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If a saddles does not fit the horse or rider the saddle must be returned unused. Please note that saddle returns are subject to our 10% restocking and handling fee. When fitting a saddle for your horse use a clean blanket or towel before placing on your horse’s back. We do not accept returns on used saddles.
what size girth does this fit? my horse is 71" around. Will it fit her?
grace g on Jul 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You will get an approximate girth size by measuring from the lowest billet hole on one side, underneath your horse up to the lowest billet hole on the other side. Then you should also have room to tighten up.
Will it fit high withers TB ?
Rosylea&Co on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Without seeing your horse I am going to say yes, it should. I have a QH and it is fine on him. He is a little more than average as far as withers height is concerned. Looking at the saddle there seems to be enough height for a high withers TB
How to measure the saddle?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: saddles are measured by seat size and tree width. the seat on an austrailian is sized similar to english dressage saddles. measure from pommel to cantle in inches. tree width comes narrow (high wither horses), regular and wide (large quarterhorse/draft). The best way to measure for tree width is get a wither tracing. I have a spotted saddle horse that the regular tree width is great. I am 150 lbs female with average build and I purchased the 17 inch and its perfect.
Do any of your AO saddles come in 15 inch?
Pam G on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: None of them are available that small. Aussie saddles run larger seat sizes than equivalent Western saddles, however, so perhaps one of these might still work for you.
My gelding I would like to get this saddle for is very short, has high withers and needs a 6" 3/4gullet.
Does this saddle work for a horse like him?
Saskia H on Nov 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it should fit well. The gullet is wide, like I needed for my mare. However she has very low withers and the pommel sat very far above them. For a high withered horse like yours, I would say it should fit. Definitely has good clearance for high withers
What is the tree width? Sizing of the saddle seat like English or western?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is measured like English. I do not know how to measure a tree correctly but I will look into it and see if I can give you a measurement tomorrow.
does the over girth have a ring on the left side, and holes on the opposite side?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's actually a double girth - from right to left is similar o an English girth and from left to right goes up under the flap into a ring then buckles like another English type girth. My only issue is the stirrups are too long, so have a hole punch - I'm 5'7"
I'm wondering if this saddle would fit my short backed Saddlebred. He's got the body of an arabian, does this have a medium sized tree? Is it good for short backs? The longest he can take is an 18 inch English saddle.
Candra on Mar 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I'm not sure if I can answer your questions, but I can give you the info I know. My husband uses this saddle on a very old Tennessee Walker (15H) with very high withers, average length back. The saddle measures 21 1/2 inches from the front most part to the back most part. Across the front under the tree where the cushioning starts to sit on the horse is 5 3/4 wide.
He says it is a very comfortable saddle for him.
I hope this helps somewhat. Good Luck.
Can anyone take a picture of how this saddle should be rigged? I purchased a used one online, and I am missing the girth. I do have the leather overgirth, and it has a D ring on one end, and hole punches on the other. Also attached to each side underneath are hole punched straps. Would appreciate a little guidance.
Mary S on Dec 31, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Barbara - look carefully at this girth.

http://www.statelinetack.com/item/down-under-kimberley-australian-soft-girth/E000439/

The end with two buckles (on the left in the photo) goes on the off-side billet.

The end with two buckles and a strap (on the right in the photo) goes on the near side. Buckle the first billet to the girth just like a regular English saddle. The strap on the near side goes through the D-ring on the over girth, then back down through the buckle.

If this is still not helpful to you, check out videos on YouTube - they will illustrate the process nicely.
Has the problem with the stirrup leathers been fixed in 2017 or 2018. Several are reporting the leathers are too wide for the stirrup Keeper ring?
Nathine on Nov 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The leathers are not too wide for the stirrup keeper ring. However, the only issue I have found is that you can not bring the stirrups up for shorter legs.
How wide are the stirrups where the leathers should enter?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are about 1 1/4" wide.
Does this saddle come with a cinch or do I need to buy that separately?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Cinches are sold separately.
If I ride in a 19inch English what size of this saddle do you recommend?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Australian seats run approximately one inch smaller than the English seat equivalent.
Anyone have a pic of this saddle in brown?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine came in 2-tone. Light and dark brown. Didn't like it at first, but now I'm glad. It's a nice contrast and goes with any tack.
I have An 18h 3 year old Percheron, would this saddle fit him? Is it true that Aussie saddles conform to the horse after riding in it for a certain amount of time?
