I have no idea what I'm supposed to be looking for!
I'm looking for a decent, all around English saddle for my gelding Divo. I want to do Dressage with him in the long run, not high-level per say, but he's my English 'starter horse'.
But...I'm completely lost when it comes to English saddles! Theres jumping saddles, Dressage saddle, all around saddle and for a Western rider, they all kinda look the same -cough cough-. Then people start talking about flaps and pads and and and
I'm wanting something in the $400 or less range. Not a show saddle, but something I can just use and work with, that fits my horse and is relatively comfortable, and won't fall apart if I try to clean it. I wouldn't want to use a $700+ saddle for dirty training work, where the horse is possibly trying to rub me off under say, a tree or a large thorned shrub.
So...suggestions? I don't even know what the seat sizes mean
