Lite Rider Australian Saddle

SAD 240

Many of our customers have told us that they would love to have one of our Down Under Series Longreach Endurance saddles, but the price was out of range. This Kimberley version of the Longreach should be just the ticket. This is a great quality, light weight saddle, ideal for endurance riding or trail riding. Unique single flap construction and super close contact, a closed-cell foam panels ensures a near perfect ride. Equipped with English style girthing - no overgirth... it's built in. Supplied fully fitted as illustrated. Saddle is made from a durable two tone brown or black smooth leather. Because of the super close contact nature of this saddle, we recommend our Merino endurance pad (PAD 580).

This saddle comes with 2.5" color matched stirrup leathers, an acrylic fleece girth, and your choice of brass safety stirrups, aluminum stirrups, stainless steel 4 bar stirrups, or leather covered stirrups. The brass 4 bar stirrups shown in the photos have been discontinued and are no longer available. Let us know which stirrups you prefer in the rider information text box.

Quality made

Beautiful Saddle

Posted by Mary Beach on Jun 26th 2018

I have ridden on my new saddle and found it to be comfortable and of high quality. Please go through all the motions of measuring yourself and your horse before ordering. I am 5'5" and 146 lbs and got a 17" seat. It fits perfectly but without any room to spare. So do not skimp on your measurements. Also gave heart girth measurement on my horse which is needed to get the correct girth. Girth straps that I had were too long but the one they sent with the saddle worked. Happy with my saddle.

Great light weight saddle

Posted by Winter on Feb 12th 2018

Beautiful saddle! Light weight so easy to tack up a tall horse. Especially when you have to get the saddle on horse that's taller then you! Super comfortable. I suggest getting the neoprene girth with the elastic buckles on one side. The fixed buckles I got make it very hard to tighten the girth. I got this as a dent and scratch and it was practically brand new for an incredible price!

Light and Comfortable

Posted by Linda Aloyo on Dec 31st 2017

I bought this saddle because it was only 16 pounds without the horn or stirrups. As I age I found that the lighter the better for saddling my 15 hand horse. This saddle is just what it says, Lite. Its an India made saddle which feels dry but I am sure once I get it oiled and conditioned it will feel just as nice as any other. I use Wintec webbers and the composite stirrup so there is no more weight added. I guess that's the nice thing about Aussie saddles, they are so versatile. Did I tell you how comfortable it is? Even with all my winter gear on.
