    What Do YOU Think???

    So I am an english girl and always have been. I tried western ONCE when they had a buckle series where you had to do both enlighs and western to win and I lost by 2 points >.< anyways my question is I have all the western show stuff that I need to ride. A nice rail shirt, pants, hat, and boots but I lack a western saddle and bridle (borrowed from a friend of my last time). So I am thinking should I save up to get a western show saddle and bridle? I mean I don't see myself doing it that often other than I would LOVE to do more tail classes. I do kind of like western and there are shows that I can show D western at and he can possible be a western horse (he has the jog for it lol) I just don't know. I have a piggy bank that has money in it for my shows this year and.... gah I don't know should I or shouldn't I....

    Save up for a western show saddle and bridle?

    I would think about how often you are planning on using it. If your not going to use it very often then it might not be worth it. If you are going to buy one I think I would get a used one.

    Thank you I like that idea. There are about 10+ shows I can think of that I can ride western at it's just that western is not my passion like Engish but a lot of people keep telling me D would make a great western horse. I think I would enjoy western trail classes more than western flat, now the western trail classes are limited in this area (maybe 4 or 5 shows) so gah I am just not sure..

    I like doing everything. I would definetly buy a used one like bgood said. So if you decide you want to sell it you can most likely get your money back. I wouldn't go all out on one for it neither, if you plan on using it much

    If your not going to show a whole lot I would look at a good used saddle so your not over invested

    I would buy a nice used saddle. It doesnt have to have tons of silver on it- but instead a nice clean look. No matter what you go with just make sure it fits you and your horse well
