Hmmm.... looks like I'll just have to move me and my horses to Australia, it would only cost me like $40,000 haha I wish. I wonder If it would be possible to do cattle work in an english saddle, that sure would make things easier.

^ I did cattle work in a Wintec 500 for about 6 years before I got my stock saddle. As long as you are used to your tack and the way your horse moves, you should be fine in anything!

Dressage or all purpose? I might just do that for now while still looking for a good Australian stock saddle.

AP. I've had that saddle for ten years and it's definitely my old faithful - Fits everyone and so comfy! I onyl use my stock saddle on Bundy as it's made for him and use my wintec on any other horses I have. I actually have two wintec 500 AP's now, I bought another because they are so handy :]

Dummy me I forgot all about this Saddle, it is available with or without a Horn and a good strong Saddle

What do you think of something like this ?

^ That's interesting. A very western styled seat, with fender styled panels, knee rolls and a horn! Have you seen it in person? Is the horn just 'tacked on' or could actually be used for roping or similar? I'm not sure about the combination of the western seat and the knee rolls though - The seat looks like it would sit you back in the back of the saddle, which negates the use of the knee rolls unless you are flung forward.

I would have to ask about the Horn and the roping part, I figured if someone can could work some cows in a Wintec 500, this one might give a little more security

Me, I need Velcro and a Seat Belt to stay in a Saddle

^ Lol, sometimes my boy nearly leaves me behind and it wouldn't matter if I WAS velcroed in I don't think!

It's a very interesting looking saddle though, I would love to talk to someone who has tried it.

I have an Aussie saddle by Down Under. It is nice enough - I know it is not super high quality but I really like it. It is uber comfy and after my Western Saddle turning my AQHA into a paint horse, uber comfy for my boy and me is of the utmost importance! I wouldn't rope a cow with it though - but genuine stock saddles from AU don't have a saddle horn anyway. I am sure my saddle would hold up to cutting cows and team penning activities. One of these days I might buy a really nice Aussie Saddle!
