There is a trained reiner at our barn I could learn what its supposed to feel like on.
Do you guys know of any adjustable western saddle brands? Sorry I have so many questions!!
Good for you!
As for the saddle, I've never heard of a adjustable western saddle. I know of treeless western saddles and like what Toto said, they don't hold up well. Truthfully, you'd rather want to buy one with a tree because they distribute your weight a lot better than a treeless. But that may just be the cheaper-end saddles, I have had no experience riding in one but I've heard not so good results from them.
But if there is a adjustable tree western saddle, someone please tell me. I'd like to know, with a growing 3-year-old a saddle that doesn't adjust all that much can be a little challenging. Hehe.
