PhotoWeatherbeeta USA of Edison, N.J., is recalling about 1,700 Collegiate riding saddles sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The saddles were manufactured with screws that are too short, causing the girth of the saddle to detach from the tree of the saddle, posing a fall hazard to the rider.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall includes 16 models of Collegiate riding saddles. All of the saddles are branded Collegiate and have a Collegiate nail head in the head of the saddle and Collegiate brand printed on the stirrup keeper. The saddles measure between 15 and 18 inches and were sold in black or brown leather or synthetic depending on the model.
