Is it possible...?

Is it possible to jump in an All-Purpose saddle? Or does it have to be a Close-Contact? I found an All-Purpose saddle I want, but I also want to jump. Should I look for a different saddle or buy the one I want?

Yes it is possible, its what they are made for, jump and flatwork. But I have been told that they are not the best for jumping. Its in one of my old threads somewhere....

Yes sure is. You can get some that will sit you closer to a jumping position than dressage. I jump in a Wintec 500 ap and it is really good. It sits you in a decent position to start out, and half the cost of a jumping saddle :P

Great! I found a wintec 500 AP that I think I want. It's only 250! I'm really happy that I can jump in it too.

Sure thing! Most people I know with horses can only afford one saddle, two at the most, so it's usually a General Purpose and maybe a dressage as well. Riding schools will almost always have you ride in a GP, whether you're jumping or not.
I've only ever ridden in a GP and I do more jumping that dressage.

Yess it's definitely possible. :)

All of the lesson saddles at my barn are all purpose and kids jumping every shape and size of fences in those. They work really well. Especially wintecs.

Sure you can jump in an all purpose saddle. The problem with those is that they are made for all purposes so they wont offer you much support.

Some people like them and some don't. Some all purpose saddles are better than others. I would suggest for you to try out a few and just see what you like best.

Good Luck

You can definitely jump in an all purpose. That's why its called all-purpose because its made for all purposes.

...ands that's why they arent the best for position when riding. Because they are build for "all purposes" they don't give you a very position 8)
