no saddle blanket????
now i would never think of riding in a saddle without a saddle blanket but ive seen numerous photos etc over the years of people riding with no saddle blanket :shock: would this pose any problems for the horse? why would someone ride without one? ive always wondered about this
iv seen quite a few of these too and they have puzzled me but a friend told me they mostly just do it for photos and not atually riding ( still not quite sure why)
I think using a saddle blanket's better protection for the horse. ;)
But that's a bit odd, I've never seen that, LOL maybe it's just for looks?
Sounds weird. I can imagine how DIRTY my saddle will be if used with no blanket.
Have any pictures? I've never heard of such a thing, outside of fitting a saddle.
I've heard that a pad/blanket's main purpose is simply to protect the saddle from leather-damaging horse sweat! I'd think as long as the saddle fit VERY well, it shouldn't cause any harm to the horse to ride without a pad.
Many of today's moisture-wicking/shock-absorbing/super-fancy pads do seem to have nice benefits though!
I know I've seen this before and I have allways in my experience belived that for the horses welfare you should use a saddle pad
I see ppl riding without a saddle pad mainly in english in books or somthing I dont' know why?
