western blanket with english saddle
I know some stuff about english riding and I've rode in it once before at my friends house but I just bought my first english saddle and I've rode in it a few times but I want to make sure that I can continue using my western saddle blanket, not pad, with my english saddle until I can get an english pad, I've read that the thicker the pad the worse it is for the horses back under an english saddle and my blanket is very thin, I used it twice under my english saddle and I've checked after the ride and made sure that my horses back wasnt sore and it wasnt. Is it safe for me to keep using the western blanket under my english saddle for now until I get an english pad???
