I am about to purchase an Orthoflex Patriot Officer's Model saddle (this one is a stitchdown seat) and have some questions.
Does anyone have any experience with these types of saddles? Ie: Types of horses it fits - or a wide variety?
Do you use a pad or booties? If a pad, what type works best? If booties, where do I find them for this older saddle??
Has anyone ever changed the rigging to center fire rigging? This one isn't set up that way.
ANY other comments/suggestions, etc are appreciated.
