Finally decided to trade in my Crates Freedom Trail for something more comfortable and vesitlile. Am really happy with my Crates Reiner and bought the freedom because I had liked Crates so much and at that time had planned to do lots of trail riding. I have found that it isn't as comfortable so I've decided to sell it. My horse is really short backed so the reiner isn't a good fit. At this point I'm looking for a saddle that I can just throw on and ride. I'd like to be able do some sorting, try my hand at roping (probably just breakaway but you never know), do some barrels and western games and also some local showing. Anyone own or recommend a saddle that would be reasonably good for those things. How about an "all around" or something like the Crates Light Versatility? It's a tall order but any recomendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
