    Is it time for a new saddle?

    I was just wondering if I need a new saddle. Stirrup wise it's fine, but lately I've been getting a sore tale-bone from riding. I've had this saddle since I was about 8..and I'm 15 now so..It's probably about time for a new one right?All I know about the saddle is that it's not a "Real" barrel saddle and it's a size 15. It's nothing fancy or custom, but I've had it for a really long time and It's been perfect for me over the years.

    Are there any ways to tell if it really IS time for a new saddle or if it's just my riding that's hurting my tale-bone?

    Thanks for the help! :)

    Doubt it's the saddle.
    There are two reasons that I get new saddles:
    1) Doesn't fit my horse.
    2) Broken or worn out anywhere.
    If your tailbone hurts, try getting a pad for the seat of your saddle. I use a neoprene one for long trail rides, and it's really comfy :)
