I agree with everyone else. So long as you don't jump high, you should be okay. That horn does tend to be a bit of a problem though

I was told that jumping in a western saddle can be very bad for the horse's back. As many western saddles are very straight the horse's back can be EASILY pinched and irritated in jumping.

If you're on a trail and theres like a log or something its ok, but don't make a habit out of it or train a horse to do that. They may not show it yet, but it can very badly hurt them. Don't jump much higher than id say logs or little ditches on a trial. I would not train in an arena over jumps with a western saddle... =/

Though like above, you can't alwasy anticipate....one jump wont damage them or anything, neither will little hops over obstacles on a trail. But actually working them over jumps in an arena? Is NOT good

I don't think it would be too much of a problem to pop over the occasional little jump. I wouldn't like to miss the saddle when landing and land on the pommel of a western though! OWIE!!!!
