So..I'm a western rider, touched my first english saddle yesterday when I accepted it as a trade for breastcollar/bridle/reins, haha.
It's an all purpose, which is just fine for what I plan to do. I just want to get an english foundation on the horses I start so I can sell them as all around 4h horses.
So..not worried about riding (aside from the fact I know I'm going to fall off at first, haha), but saddle doesn't have leathers or stirrups.
I need help with leathers and a girth. I want a girth (and extender?) that'll work for a majority of horses. I have no idea of size or how they would compare to a western cinch..or, anything, basically, haha. I think I'm going with a girth that has an interchangable fleece/neoprene slip on thing, just don't know what size will fit a majority of horses.
As for leathers..What length do I get? I plan on doing hunters and pleasure with the horses (good or not, just to add to their experience). I'm 5'7" and prefer a longer leg so I don't cheat on posting (I do know that much, I rely on my stirrups if they're there too much, even western). Soo..whst length should I look to buy?
