Oh to be young!!
I've reached the point where I only trail ride. Slowly.
And I go for comfort! My endurance saddle is comfortable for me (and my horse), allows me to "feel" the horse and provides a little bit more support on steep inclines than an English saddle. No horn. I'm not roping cattle, so who needs that spike poking up at you? Good riding is good riding. The tack changes with the task...but balance, seat, clear communication --- it's all the same. Find what you enjoy....and then do it. For as long as you can!
Also, the endurance saddle is light enough (19 lbs) for me to handle with no problems!
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
