My bestie RubieLee gave me this sweet Bona Allen gaited horse saddle. Well my horse isn't gaited, which is fine because the saddle still fits my horse and doesn't sit weird on him. The thing is it also doesn't have knee rolls and my horse goal for the year is to learn to jump English. Sounds crazy but I can jump western just havent english. (I think its just cause I'm chicken.)
So does anyone out there jump with out knee rolls? Is it better for your leg strenght and does it make jumping easier when I do get a saddle that is equiped so? Another thing is should I just use the saddle for trail and schooling and save up to get an English saddle with knee rolls???
Any advice would be appreciated.
