When I bought my horse 10 years ago. Knowing nothing about saddles I bought the one at TSC that was on sale. A synthetic saddle made in the USA. My grandmother gave me another saddle we use on my husbands horse, old and small.
Well the girl that came to ride our horses tied to get up in the saddle and it kept slipping she said in the back. She never could get up in it. I don't have a problem but maybe I have gotten use to the way I have always done things. The synthetic saddle.
I realize they are both small I should go measure the seats. I think I have just gotten use to them and never had a problem with them.
No I am thinking I should go looking for 2 good comfortable saddles my husband thinks it's silly he doesn't like to spend money on horse stuff.
I don't have extra money sitting around so I going to have to save up for that. And look for a good used one.
I don't know where to start. What brands, what size, what style. Western is what I want I know. No wonder I have never bought a different saddle. It's to much headache.
Here is a saddle I can afford. (picture attached) But how do I know if it is good or not and if it will fit my horse when I get back home. I also have 2 different horses a TB thin with high withers and a Paint that wider and not as quite as high of withers. But he has TB in him too so he is not a flat round QH style either.
