I'm new in this neck of the woods and have some questions about English tack.
So my dilemma is that I ride western and store my big ol' saddle in the house to counteract the mold/mildew of my tackroom (not as insulated as it should be and don't want to deal with the possibility of ruining my saddle). I don't want to haul it back and forth during the winter because it is heavy and too slippery outside, just not a good time!
I could get a synthetic Western saddle, but I like the idea of English riding and the different position, etc. I ride in a 15in, I'm 5'4" & 125lbs. Looking to do mostly casual, minor trails, and road riding.
Is this a decent saddle? If it is, what size would I be looking at, 16.5?: Next Gen Wintec 250 All Purpose Package - Statelinetack.com
I like the 5 Star saddle pads for Western, do I need that on the English side of things or would something else be good?: English All Purpose Style Pad - Mile High Ranch Saddle Outfitters
Any response would be appreciated :)
