Which Saddle for Senior Dressage Horse and Senior Western Rider?

I have recently acquired a 28-year-old gelding who has had a long, illustrious career in dressage events and lessoning. At some point, after I know him better and I'm sure he is as fit and healthy as may be, I would like to ride him occasionally, perhaps once a week or so, gently--for both of us. To my knowledge, Jazz has never had a Western saddle on his back. My experience with English saddles was 55 years ago, and even now, I am a novice rider in Western riding as well as a novice horse keeper! My question is: what kind of saddle would eventually be comfortable for both of us?
