Needing advice on what kind, size, and style of saddle to get
I am new to the English style of riding and I have some questions, so I thought this would be a good place for ideas.....So, I have a Paint mare that I am wanting to get an English saddle for. I stand about 6'0 130 lbs. My riding instructor told me that I need at least an 18" saddle with an extended flap....I am wanting to do some jumping but not anything too serious. I also enjoy just trail/yard riding :) So she told me to get a Close Contact...I had thought I might need an all-purpose. So if you all have any ideas I would really appreciate that! Also if you all know any good affordable saddle shops, or certain manufacturers that tend to be suited for taller people.
