Same Saddle?
 
Hey,

I was wondering can you use the same saddle on two horses and it not wreak the saddle in any way?

You can use a saddle on as many horses as it fits without ruining it.

Its my good saddle that I've only ever used on Chinga I've been told that a saddle molds itself to a horse....is this true?

If you mean an English saddle, then to a tiny degree but not enough that it will possibly make a difference. Keep in mind that any horse is always gaining or loosing weight and muscle so the physical makeup of a horse is dynamic. The only time you need to have a different saddle for a second horse is when the structure of the second horse is different and the saddle is too wide (or narrow) for that horse.

iridehorses is right...in fact...I know a couple people that will ONLY ride in THEIR saddle. One guy has a western saddle, and if his saddle won't fit the horse...he won't ride it (strange right?)... I know of two others that only ride in their saddles...but their saddles are wintecs and they use the changeable gullet system like a religion.

You wouldn't "wreck" the saddle, but you would need to make sure it fit both horses, do you don't "wreck" the other horse ;-). My two horses have very different back shapes and cannot use the same saddles, even with creative padding.

Absolutely, there is no reason why you couldn't use a saddle on a lot of different horses but the question is whether or not it will fit those horses :D

Yea because I was hoping to try Chinga's saddle on Punkin (large pony) to see if it fits. Because Punkins is to big for Punkin.
