Abetta Saddle Personal & Individual Reviews:
Lori: I needed a lighter saddle to allow my horse to feel comfortable on long rides. Researched this brand and found it met my needs. Very happy.
Joyce: 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.
Grant: I log a lot of miles in the saddle so I like a lightweight saddle. It’s easier for saddling and for my horse to carry. It’s a good buy.
Ellen: I tried several saddles and ended up liking one of the endurance saddles quite well. It seemed to combine the best of both worlds, was lightweight and comfortable.
Annie: My Abetta Classic and special Trail models are great light weight saddles for me (and my poor old body/shoulders), and a good fit for many horses I have tried them on. The Abetta Endurance did have centerfire rigging. It also had quite a different too-wide and squar-ish gullet and angles. It did not fit anything I tried it on.
Walker: The best saddle is the one that fits the horse first, and the rider second! I have ridden bareback most of my life but I also have many saddles - there was always something to fit each of my horses and their riders. Buy something lightweight. Not that the horse can't handle a 32 lb saddle but, the older you get, the more you will come to hate slinging or sliding it up on the horse. But, I personally don't like Abetta because I don't like center fire rigging.
Michelle: The Abetta endurance is the most comfortable saddle! My saddle cost 1/5th the price of my Tucker endurance saddle and beats it in every way. It is light (only 12lbs), comfortable, and grippy. I have lower back issues and my first ride in this saddle felt so much better throughout the ride and after. The saddle is flexible, conforming well to the horse, and enabling the rider to actually feel the horse's movements. I converted the centerfire rigging to take an English girth by ordering a girth converter. My horse is a TWH/Percheron draft with high withers, and the open section across the top of the saddle suited him perfectly. He also wasn't soaked in sweat when I removed it. I loved the velcro straps that keep excess stirrup leather secured. My horse seemed happier, and I was definitely happier.
Lorraine: Lightweight! Love that.
Shelli: The saddle is lightweight making it great for people like myself that can't lift a whole lot of weight. It has a foam padded seat that is pretty comfortable, and is certainly well made, durable, and has great leverage on the stir-ups. It's easy to clean, and holds up to abuse quite well.
Maggie: I have had my saddle for over 20 years and have used it on the trails and endurance rides. It has thousands of miles on it and still in great shape. Have only replaced the off billet and tie strap a few times. These saddles are well built and a great bargain.
Helen: Just got the Endurance saddle and have ridden in it many times now and I love it. Very comfortable and well made. Thrilled about its fit. This is a really nice saddle at a fair price.
Tad: As a trail rider, I have been riding Abetta saddles for quite a few years. Love the ease of care (hose it off) and the light weight. This saddle is very comfy. Once you get past the fact that it is not real leather - tell the tack police to take a hike - this saddle is great. For the money it cannot be beat. I would recommend this saddle for anyone who spends long hours in the saddle. AND it fits my hard to fit horse.
