My first question is what saddle would be better. I am getting a wintec for my horse and have been offered a trade. The girl interested wants to trade her wintec 250 all purpose saddle for my close contact saddle. I love close contacts and currently ride my horse in a wintec close contact that his half leaser bought. She doesn't mind me riding in her saddle but I would like one of my own. So my question is to do eventing, hunter/jumper and schooling shows would the wintec 250 all purpose work well? Or should I hold out and try to sell my saddle and get a wintec close contact?
Also if I do trade my tack will be mismatching. I have all brown tack right now and if I trade I will have a brown bridle, brown breastcollar and black saddle. Is that ok? I am pretty new to showing and such but does it really matter if your tack matches?
