I'm Buying another horse very soon, so I thought I might start my saddle research.
I will be doing Eventing, low level to train the horse how to jump for the first year/s. 50cm - 1m.
I heard that if you are doing eventing but only can afford two saddles, get a Dressage (obviously) and a Jump saddle instead of a Event saddle. But I'm not a big fan of the flaps going over the horses shoulders. Pro's and Con's of a Jump saddle vs. Event saddle?
Also - the HDR brand... again, Pro's and Con's?
Oh also - I know you have to fit it to the horse and rider, etc. but might as well start by knowing if the saddles a good brand, and what to look for!
