Saddle for TRAILS (story)
So a few days ago, a family friend has let me come to her house to learn more about horses and get experience around them to prove to my dad that I can take car of one. Since it is a little too icy to ride, we have just been cleaning out stalls (5 Quarters and 1 pony. I clean out 3 and she gets the other 3) feeding, watering, and taking them to the pasture. I know some people will probably think I'm crazy by saying this but I'm actually having fun doing all of that, even cleaning the stalls! Hahaha.
She was showing me her tack room last weekend and she had a lot of cool stuff! She has told me that she has a saddle rack that she would give me (when I have a horse of my own) which I thought was really nice. She also offered me a 15" Simco barrel saddle for $150. It's a few years old but looks in great shape. She said that she would save it for me if I wanted it, and if I did buy it and decide later to sell it that I could prob get the same amount I paid for it.
I was just curious if it would be an ok saddle for trails? I don't plan to do barrels or anything. Just wanting to do some trails and/or camping with horses. I don't have a picture to show of it. What do you all think?
