I have been a western rider for my entire life. (a whole 22 years lol). I had wrist surgery last year and was off good normal riding for almost 2 years except for the occasional ride around the pen on my old barrel horse. I have some new younger boys around here now and I have been ridding them western but I have realize I am having trouble with balance. Its amazing how much you loose when you can't possibly ride consistently for 2 years,
SO to my point, I am looking for an english saddle to help build myself back up to a better rider but I have NO CLUE what type of saddle to buy. My head is spinning with AP, CC, Dressage? I have no clue! My main mount had used to be an all round 4-H horse so He is used to english, he's good at bareback ridding but I want an english saddle just to trail ride in and such. No competing just my posture and balance back (and tbh I think I like riding english better than western on a nice well broke horse).
