I need an old, cheap, crappy, but usable synthetic saddle for swimming in the lake...

I can't afford to spend much, so I'm going for a very low price. It can be ugly, old, and crappy, just as long as it's safe and rideable. Also, I'm using it on a Fox Trotter, so it doesn't need to have a back cinch or breast collar. My Fox Trotter is narrow, but I prefer a medium tree, and I ride in a 15". Thank you so much for your help!

There was a vendor at equine affair in columbus, oh this year that was selling their new saddle that was built for getting we. They had it running under a waterfall fountain set up. It was super col. Maybe try to find a list of the vendors there and see if you can find them.

He has a bone that is VERY uncomfortable to sit on, and trust me, that hurts even if you're a girl. :P I have an old bareback pad, but it slides all over the place.

He is... he is only 16 years old, so I don't know why he's so swaybacked, but he is! He is a rescue horse, too, so maybe that has something to do with it... Thank you!
