Lately I have been reading about western and english riding, the differences and the activities, I love both of them!
Some days I just feel like western, other days I feel like english. I have barrels if I wanted to try barrel racing, but I also have been attempting to jump and could also easily set up a jumping course.
I don't show or anything since I'm not into that side of it, I ride for pure enjoyment.
My question is, does it matter what saddle etc your in? I don't really like western saddles as I learnt to ride in one and just kept grabbing the horn for support, (Bad habbit much?). I rode in a stock saddle for a bit over a year and only just got an all purpose.
Here's a photo of us with our gear:
Sorry I have no photos of the saddle, it's just a kincade all purpose. :)
