I use my english saddle for everything!
I've never had a problem or anything. But i've only been on 2 trail rides with my saddle. One wasn't too long, as it was just a walk around the property, but we never did it. And the other one was through woods and everything. We did great, but since Vega was so green, she got nervous when she was left at the top of a very steep hill. So i turned around.

I always ride in my English saddle. :D When I'm on trails definitely.
I have also never had any problems. I find it nice to ride in...I don't really like Western saddles. A lot of people I know ride in Western to trail (even though they ride English normally), but I don't like it. LOL! :lol:

I used to trail ride a young gelding that my parents owed in an english saddle...we didnt have a western that fit him well. After I broke him out we sold him.
I Never had any problems and used my close contact stubben.

I have en english endurance saddle for trail riding, but I have also ridden in a dressage. I would not ride long distance in an all purpose, when I trail ride it's usually for 4 hours, sometimes more.

When I used to ride English (about a thousand years ago :lol: ) I rode everywhere. There were 4 and 5 hour rides in the mountains, and through woods. Keep in mind that most of Europe still rides only in an English saddle. In fact most of the horseback castle tours in England and Ireland are English.
It is primarily in the US that we ride Western (although in Australia they use the stock saddle).
