What I'm looking for though is a saddle that is like an aussie, but lighter. Synthetic is fine, but I like leather too. No horns though. Don't like them. I need comfortable stirrups and thin leathers as my knees and feet will hurt without them.
I plan to trail ride and do some endurance for now. I have an english saddle that would fit him should I want to start showing.
I don't mind spending some money on a good quality saddle either.
I need a fleece or something like that for his girth. He is cinchy and the farm rode him in a fleece one for regular workouts. He liked it better. I'll ride him in other ones, but comfort is my main objective.
What width tree do the narrower arabs normally take?
And bits...I know their mouths are narrower. I don't think any of my bits will end up fitting.
