All Purpose or Close Contact
In my spare time, i've been looking for saddles between 600-1000 dollars. But I've come into a predicament. Should I get a close contact or all purpose?
As of right now, I have a close contact that I love dearly, but it's soo small, so it's going.
Anyways, I've been doing mostly flat work, but I'm either a. Working with Gem who cannot jump or b. Getting Montana back into shape so I can jump him (most likely come spring time)
I have also gone out and will go out on more trails and while I was fine (after a few rides) in my CC, I'm wondering if an AP (or eventing) saddle would be better for what I'm planning on doing.
I do not plan to show anytime soon, and the only event I do plan on going to are hunter paces, but I don't believe there are any saddle requirements.
So I guess what I'm asking, if you were in my position, what kind of saddle would you have?
