I've been riding for about three years and have tried everything from western pleasure to dressage. I've decided that I would like to go more into dressage, but would also be interested in a little jumping. I won't be doing very high jumps considering my horse was in an accident a while ago and is still recovering, but the vet told me I could do small ones. I've been told by many different people to get close contact for now, and if I decide not to go into jumping just get a dressage saddle. Others have told me to just get an all purpose so I can do both with no problem. Some people have told me that all purpose doesn't give you a completely balanced seat and that close contact would be better. I'm so confused at what to do and ultimately what I want is for my horse to be comfortable. What should I do?!!
