Hi guys, need some advice from you knowledgeable people on a new saddle.
i'm after a saddle to do arena work and trail riding in. The saddle maker suggested this reining saddle he had as it provides a really stable seat and great leg aids. He said it would be good to trail in.
Has any one done trailing in a reining saddle? I would like my butt in one piece:lol:
When I trail ride I do so in either my reining saddle or more often in my rope saddle. Only b/c it is not as expensive as my reining saddle. There is no reason why you could not trail ride in a reining saddle. However a true reining saddle that is of a good make is not going to be cheap and if you find one that is ask why.
Thanks for the quick response. The saddle maker is a one man outfit with a really good reputation. He usually makes to order for horse and rider. This saddle is pre-made and one that he thinks will be a good fit for us both. He said I can try then return if Im not happy. The saddle will cost me a bit of money and I want a decent one but I cant afford to splash out on a second one.
Here is a photo, love to hear all your thoughts,
Looks nice. Did he say what tree he uses?? Not talking size but type. Looks like he dose nice work.
I think that looks like a nice saddle!
The tree is manufactured by Ralide.
liked your response as I want to know the negatives and problems. Could you tell me what kind of effect having a set back seat and forward legs would have on me and my horse on a trail ride.
Also those types of saddles tend to have less skirt to enable them to stay out of the way of the hips and shoulders of the horse.
A trail saddle is more soldily set on the horse. Side to side and front to back.
It truly does depend on what you are comfortable with and of course - what fits your horse.
