I'm new to this forum and also new to riding. I am looking around for an english saddle to buy because the one my instructor has for my lesson horse is too small for me. But I was wondering what your opinions are and need some advice. Since I am a beginner, I don't want to spend a lot on a saddle, so I've been looking for used and searching online as well.
Here are the questions: Does the color of the saddle matter in shows? Does the saddle type matter in English Pleasure vs. Dressage? In other words, can I buy a dressage saddle and use it for both? Or is that against the rules? (Remember, we're talking about beginner shows.)
Thanks everyone! I love this forum... I've been learning a lot! ;)
