Do any of you have one of these saddles? If so, how do you like it? I have a Arab/Quarter and am thinking of looking at these saddles. I think the saddle I am using now is too long for the short back of my horse.
Alberta's are decent synthetic saddles. They wear like iron, they are mostly comfortable and as long as it fits your horse, they are great! Flex trees can be helpful as long as the rider is under 225lbs.
I have the Abetta Comfort Endurance with the Arab tree. For my super picky, hard to fit, short back Morgan, this saddle is a hit. I did not do the flex tree based on such mixed reviews. Plus, if my husband wants to ride I do not have to worry about the weight issue and a flex tree. Personally, I did not like the regular Abetta Endurance Arab tree as the seat was not to my taste. The Comfort seat is heaven on the bum. Just my experience. Good luck in your saddle hunt. Now if I could ever find a dressage saddle the Stinky Pony liked as much as his Abetta....
