    Saddle Advice

    I'm looking for an all-purpose saddle that is fairly inexpensive...I have heard collegiates are a good brand. Is that true? Are there any other nice brands? Thanks for any input!

    The old Collegiates are pretty decent middle-of-the-road saddles. I have one myself; its a really good fit for me (very comfortable) and it fits a wide range horses at my barn....though I do have to use a riser pad for the high withered horses. Be wary of the newer Collegiates, the leather is of lesser quality.

    I would go for a used name brand saddle rather than a new cheap saddle. You really get what you pay for.

    I agree. There are some pretty sweet saddles out there that second hand but they are nicer than new saddles a lot of the time. They are already broken in and the quality will make the saddle last forever.
