Abetta Cordura saddle- help?

Wed, 23 Apr 1997 20:26:01 -0400 (EDT)

I just bought an Abetta Cordura Plus endurance saddle from State Line Tack.
I am not sure I will keep it. I sat on it for a minute with just a towel
under it to keep it clean. Right away I thought I felt my seat bones on the
saddle and it seemed hard. It is supposed to be a softee. If the tree will
spread, it will not fit my horse, who is a normal to high withered
standardbred. If it won't spread, it may be OK. Perhaps I should order one
for an arab??? Is an arab more high withered?
Has anyone had any experience with this saddle? Would you keep it if you
were me? Please help with with your collective wisdom.
I have read the Ride Camp endurance FAQ and info on saddles, but this one
was not mentioned. It seem that the sports saddle is the one of choice for
endurance riding.. I ordered a catalog tonight.
If you could only buy one and that one was a light synthetic saddle, what
would you recommend for around under $800. ??? I prefer to ride a western
type saddle.
Please help! Email me privately, as I have trouble keeping up with the
digests right now.
