Anyone here used an Aussie style stock saddle? Don't get me wrong, I like the Eamor roping saddle I ride, I have done up to 9 hrs in one hit the saddle and no sores for me or horse. However I'm conscious of how heavy it is for the horse and also painful on my knees after 3 or 4 hours and have heard people tell me how light and easier on the knees Aussie saddle are, any thoughts? I use my horse for penning and cutting as well as trail riding but no one I know uses an Australian style riding saddle.
Does anyone live in Edmonton area and have one I can try?
