Post Eventing saddle vs. Hunter/Jumper saddle?

What's the difference between an "eventing/cross country" saddle and a "hunter/jumper" saddle? I always thought they were the same, until I started noticing they were classified into different sections...

Be careful with saddles labled "Eventing" saddles - because many of them are All Purpose Saddles.

Hunter/Jumper Saddles, are CC's

Make sure you do your research on whichever saddle you are looking at to make sure it is actually a CC or an A/P.

If it is an A/P - I'd stray away.

Since eventers do both jumping and dressage, many will get an "all purpose" saddle, which is a combination of the two (unfortunately -IMHO- don't do either well). So if someone calls something an "eventing" saddle I would assume they're talking about an AP. H/Jers use close contact saddles.

I hate all purpose saddles! I didn't realize that's what they were generally calling "eventing" saddles. Thanks for the heads up! I definitely won't make the mistake of buying one now!
