I'm getting a horse within the next month (it's a rescue staying for additional month for time with the trainer so I do have access to ride/test saddles).
Anyways, the horse will be mine primarily but my daughter will also spend quite a bit of time riding.
I am 5'8" 130 and my daughter is 5' and about 80ish (growing an inch a week it seems!) and nine years old, so lots of growing in the horizon. We both have only ridden western. The horse will be for trail riding/pleasure for the most part. Though, competitive trail riding has gotten my interest.
The horse is a TB with super high withers and pretty round being an ex broodmare. We are definitely looking for budget friendly that will last.
Should we or can we get a saddle we can share OR
Should I get her a cheap Abetta type saddle and me a slightly better used? OR
Both inexpensive Abettas? Or something else entirely?
Can anyone give me more info on endurance saddles? They just look comfortable to me...never sat in one and know they aren't really applicable to the type of riding I will be doing. Just a girly reaction of Oooo, it looks pretty :P
