Snowy River Australian Saddle

(2 customer reviews)

$1,645.00$1,700.00 CAD

Truly handsome, timeless & totally functional… that’s the Snowy River Saddle!

Considerable time & precision is taken to build each Australian saddle with a special low maintenance sheepskin panel that distributes the rider’s weight evenly over a larger area on the horse’s back. You’ll find it deep seated, secure & above all, unsurpassed in comfort. This style of saddle is considered a crossover saddle. It has the fleece panel like a Western Saddle with the tree and poleys of an Australian saddle.

The saddle horn is securely attached to the steel gullet & angled forward out of your way, but is always there when you need it. Totally hand-crafted, with a special sheepskin panel so production is limited. Available in tree widths to suit most horses and with an adjustable gullet, backed by a 10 year product warranty on the tree.

All of our Australian saddles come fully fitted with 2.5″ stirrup leathers, a fleece or felt girth, and stirrups.

With the fleece panel we recommend the Bad Dog Ranch 1/2″ saddle pad.

Send us your wither and back tracings so we can custom fit your saddle to your horse. Also check out our YouTube channel for more details on how to do a wither tracing!

    I’ve ridden horses for 45+ yrs. and this saddle has to be the most comfortable I’ve ever ridden in. I thought my riding days were going to be far and few between as my hips and knees would just scream after even a short ride. So I did some research on the Aussie saddles, contacted Amber and ended up with the Snowy River Legend saddle… the best money I’ve ever spent. So if your getting into your senior years like me and have knee and/or hip issues or just plain achy muscles and think your riding days are coming to end, try an Aussie saddle before throwing in the towel. I can’t say enough good things about this saddle and the excellent customer service Amber provided.

    Absolutely love this saddle. Been looking for a good saddle for two years. and contacted Amber. She directed me to do a back tracing for correct sizing and I ended up with the snowy river. Excellent saddle and excellent customer service. My advice is to not get the cheap knock offs that have become so popular. Consult this store and get the real deal.
