Comparison Shop Fabtron Saddles
Below are Fabtron saddles for sale from several major online sellers.
From Amazon, HorseSaddleShop, and StateLineTack
- HorseSaddleShop is one of the largest saddle dealers in the country. Almost every
saddle they carry is in stock and ships the same day.
- Most of the saddles shown are new, but some might be used.
- Shipping is almost always included in the price for locations in the continental USA.
- Some saddles by HorseSaddleShop are listed twice. Why? It’s because HorseSaddleShop is one business (located in Bremen, Indiana), with two websites (HorseSaddleShop.com and eSaddles.com), and they often show the same saddle on both websites. In case one website would have a better deal on a saddle, saddles from both websites are shown.

Saddle Rigging Positions
On a Western saddle, rigging positions are commonly referred to as “full,” “7/8,” and more. Here is a quick breakdown of what those common rigging positions mean.
Full Rigging: The front cinch position is the full distance from the cantle to the pommel. This puts the front cinch directly beneath the pommel of the saddle.
7/8 Rigging: The front cinch position is 7/8 of the distance from the cantle to the pommel. This puts the front cinch a little farther back than a full rigged saddle.
3/4 Rigging: The front cinch position is 3/4 of the distance from the cantle to the pommel. This puts the front cinch a little farther back than a 7/8 rigged saddle.
Center Fire Rigging: The front cinch position is (approximately) centered between the cantle and the pommel.
More Rigging Terms
Single Rigged: This means there is a front cinch, but not a back cinch (sometimes called a “flank cinch”). The term “single rigged,” by itself, does not let you know the position of the front cinch (full, 7/8, etc.).
Double Rigged: This means there is a front cinch and a back cinch. The term “double rigged,” by itself, does not let you know the position of the front cinch (full, 7/8, etc.).
Full Double Rigged: This means there is a front cinch and a back cinch, and that the front cinch is in the “full” rigged position (the full distance from the cantle to the pommel).
