This great saddle is great value! The 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.  Weighs about 16lbs.

General Info about the Australian Saddle:

The Australian (Aussie) stock saddle’s unique design, it will fit almost every horse.  The wool heavily padded underside will mold to the shape of your horse’s back while still maintaining a clear gullet channel for the spine.

When seated in an Aussie saddle, it’s more similar to sitting in a chair.  Your legs are out in front of you a little more than in a Western saddle.  This position is comfortable for lengths of time and reduces stress on your lower back.  The knee pads on the Aussie saddle should be 3/4’s of an inch or less away from your upper thigh.  If you are too close, you need a bigger saddle; too far away then a smaller size would work better for you.

Many people say that once you go “Aussie” you never go back.   The Aussie saddle, while being the last of the saddle development, has really earned a place next to the classic English and Western.  Made ideally for ranch work and for long endurance style riding, this could be just the saddle you have been looking for.  Seat size:  the Aussie saddle is measured from the front and center of the pommel, straight back to the center of the cantle.
