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.

I can't afford to fall (MANY past injuries, 70 yrs old). This saddle is PERFECT. I have 3 others w/horns because I pony other horses. I LOVE not having the horn when I ride alone.

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.

Would this saddle work for a typical gaited horse?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2015
Best Answer: This is my favorite saddle to use with gaited horses! I've ridden in dressage as well as the alleged "gaited" western saddles, and I've found this to be the most secure, comfy, saddle, and it puts the rider in an excellent position to help support the gait!

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

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.

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

How much lighter is the synthetic saddle from the leather one?
Molly on Apr 26, 2016
Best Answer: This synthetic saddle is SOLID, with that wood and steel frame, so it weighs more than you might expect! However, it is indeed significantly less than the leather version, which weighs as much as a comparable western endurance saddle.

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.

Have this saddle in black and like it. Problem is that I co-own the horse and my partner has much shorter legs than I. It's a hassle to change the stirrup length and I'd like to get another set of stirrups and "leathers" to switch out between riders. Do you have just these for sale?
Cheryl B on Nov 28, 2016
Best Answer: You can use Wintec webbers with regular English stirrups on this saddle. I don't have any for sale but State Line probably does. Kelly

Does Down Under still do the whither trace if you buy it from here?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2016
Best Answer: While the saddle will be shipped from Down Under, you would want to contact them as soon as you place your order through State Line Tack so that you can get them the information and they can add that request to your order. They are SUPER good about working with you! Select the wide tree option, so they will know to get one that can be adjusted. Hope this helps! I love my saddle, and their customer service is tops!

How high is the pommel?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2017
Best Answer: Not sure what you are asking...do you mean the gullet (where the withers go) or how high does it rise from the seat (in front of where you sit)?
