OK, so I'm buying my first horse and I need help choosing a saddle. I have a small list of a few requirements I would definitely like the saddle to meet:
-English pleasure saddle, pretty basic. (I do about 3' foot jumping, and flatwork too, so does a pleasure saddle sound like what I need?)
-Price limit is pretty low-- no more than $300
-Synthetic if possible, easier to maintain (Or do you think it is better to use leather? Which would you recommend)
-Wintec Brand is my favorite (Any other brand suggestions?)
Alright, so now here's the question. Lefty, the horse I'm buying, is a 15.3 hand gelding, wears a 46'' inch girth, and 72'' turnout sheets & blankets. What size saddle would he wear, and how to they run? By inches, or another way? I've never bought a saddle so I'm sort of new at this. So ultimately, WHAT KIND/SIZE SADDLE SHOULD I GET HIM? COULD YOU SEND ME ONE?
