Endurance Saddles & Aussie Saddles
Australian saddles, outback saddles, and endurance saddles are designed to keep both horse and rider comfortable on long trail rides over difficult terrain. With a padded, deep seat and large thigh blocks, these saddles keep you balanced and secure over the duration of your ride. The longer and straighter flap accommodates a longer stirrup to lessen the chances of the rider’s leg cramping. They also feature a number of dee-rings and tie-rings to clip saddle bags and water flasks, which allows you to keep your equipment and ride supplies close at hand.
Our selection of leather endurance saddles includes saddles from high-quality saddleries such as Bates Saddlery and Thorowgood. Our Bates Outback saddles and stock saddles feature the CAIR Cushion System which effectively flocks your saddle panel with air; this eliminates pressure points and keeps your horse’s back free from pain. If you ride Arabians, a common breed for endurance and competitive trail riding, the Thorowgood endurance saddles showcase a short panel design to fit shorter-coupled Arabian types.
If you routinely ride in wet conditions, you may want to consider a synthetic endurance saddle. These durable saddles maintain their integrity when subjected to excess moisture and are extremely easy to care for. We carry lightweight endurance saddles from Tucker Saddlery which feature Gel-Cush technology built into the seat of the saddle for lasting comfort.
In addition to our new endurance saddles, we also carry a number of used endurance saddles on consignment.
Hit the trails and enjoy the ride with your new endurance saddle. For optimal comfort and performance, it is imperative that you purchase a saddle that fits your horse and your body correctly.
