Talking Gizmo's New Saddle

Got a new saddle today for super cheap. Wanted to get back into english a little bit so I wanted a beater saddle. :) So yes, I know he doesn't have a pad on and there is no girth or stirrups yet, but I had to see how it fit him so I ended up taking pictures. So what do you think?

Nice looking! But you spelled better wrong lol
Could you get some pics of the back (rump) end and just on top of the withers? That way we could see down the spine.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

lol, I didn't mean "better" I mean that it is an old saddle that I don't mind if it get something wrong with it so I meant beater. But I can see where you thought that I meant that. . I can take those pics tomorrow for sure.

Kitten_Val: I'm not sure how old it is. But its not new for sure. It has some nicks here and there and there has been work done to the girth leathers because they are nylon underneath the leather. It is a Cambridge though. I think I got a good deal on it. It was $75 but I had $60 left over in store credit from Christmas still so in reality I only paid $15 for it, which is a good deal.

I'm not sure about the brand (never heard about it), but it looks to be in a very good condition!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

Yep it is. I was looking for more of an all purpose, but for the price it will work for me :) I will let you know if we don't like it though.

Gizmo,

Kind of hard to see clearly. Photos aren't so clear. Anyway, it looks like itmight be ok. There's hint of maybe being a bit narrow at the front part of the tree. Really hard to tell without being there to run my hand under it. The angle looks maybe a bit steeper than the angle of your horse's body, but again, I am NOT sure from these pictures.
That kind of dressage saddle is closer to an all purpose in the fact that it has a forward angling flap. In fact, looking at the d rings it has on the rear, I wonder if it actually isn't an AP?

I was wondering that too... Especially given a fact flaps look more forward than typical dressage saddle.

Maybe by the picture but I could fit three fingers in there. I'm not the best judge of saddle fitting so the lady at my tack store tried to help me out as best as she could. I took a measurement of his withers with a coat hanger. And it fit to this saddle. Gizmo has such weird withers and body that its hard to fit a saddle to him. I really lucked out with my Western because it fits him like a glove.

Oh awesome. The tag said dressage on it, but it could be all purpose in actuality. Which would be great. Was looking to get set into one discipline.
