Same Saddle?

Hey,

I was wondering can you use the same saddle on two horses and it not wreak the saddle in any way?

You can use a saddle on as many horses as it fits without ruining it.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

If you mean an English saddle, then to a tiny degree but not enough that it will possibly make a difference. Keep in mind that any horse is always gaining or loosing weight and muscle so the physical makeup of a horse is dynamic. The only time you need to have a different saddle for a second horse is when the structure of the second horse is different and the saddle is too wide (or narrow) for that horse.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

iridehorses is right...in fact...I know a couple people that will ONLY ride in THEIR saddle. One guy has a western saddle, and if his saddle won't fit the horse...he won't ride it (strange right?)... I know of two others that only ride in their saddles...but their saddles are wintecs and they use the changeable gullet system like a religion.

You wouldn't "wreck" the saddle, but you would need to make sure it fit both horses, do you don't "wreck" the other horse . My two horses have very different back shapes and cannot use the same saddles, even with creative padding.

Absolutely, there is no reason why you couldn't use a saddle on a lot of different horses but the question is whether or not it will fit those horses

Yea because I was hoping to try Chinga's saddle on Punkin (large pony) to see if it fits. Because Punkins is to big for Punkin.
