opinions on buying the saddle before the horse?
im western saddle shopping since im going to be getting a horse in the
near future so whats your opinion on getting a saddle before you buy the horse? should i do it?
oye that eagerness to shop gets the better of me some times. Dont you have to buy a saddle that fits your horse? Im not really sure how that works, as I have never looked for saddles.
yeah thats what i was wondering. cuz i know some saddles usually fit all horses like my old wintec fit every horse i used it on.
I wouldnt because you dont know if the saddle your going to buy is goin to fit your new horse right in the fututre then you will have to get a new one
I bought my saddle before my horse because I ride TONS of different horses right now and wanted my own saddle and if it doesn't fit my horse, well, i'll have to resort to my treeless, and that's fine with me
if you buy one with QH bars or semi-QH bars you will probably be ok unless you end up w/ a great big warmblood or draft... or a teeny little fine boned arab.... I think the semi-qh bars fit just about everything...... My western saddles fit almost everything i think... so does my english, it's an HDR, not the new QH HDR but just a semi-qh and it fits most everything... although I did try a stubben on my short fat qh one time and it didnt come anywhere NEAR fitting...
well my next horse will be a QH so you think ill be okay getting QH bars? how do you know if its QH bars?
edit: sorry i forgot this.... my saddle has full QH bars, but my 4-H horse is a QH and it fits horribly on him..... so it really comes down to the individual horse.... i can ride in my saddle on another qh and be fine
it should say somewhere full qh bars or fqhb, it's usually a 7" gullet...
