Re: [RC] [RC] Aussie saddle - Laurie Durgin

There is a Syd Hill endurance saddle and I have a "Longreach Endurance" by Outback Saddlery on the net.I second the comfort and security.I 'Like" riding english and learned that way, but Arab spins aren't conducive to riding englilsh saddles."I don' like the ground'I like 'riding" ;}

I wouldn't trade my Aussie for the world. We've purchased additional
aussies, including one for my teenage daughter all other saddle are
collecting dust. However, The Aussies that we purchased are modified for
endurance riding. The polys are tipped vertical and dropped do that they
don't snug you into the sea but are there when you are in a two point
position and posting. When we purchased the saddle for my daughter we
originally ordered a traditional style. One ride and she hated it. She
fought the polys to post adn I felt trapped. We swapped that saddle the
next day for an endurance modified version. Talk to the saddle makers about
your needs and what you will be using the saddle for. There are big
differences in Aussies just as there are in english and western saddles.
I.e. I won't team pen or rope in a western barrel saddle.
