Alrighty, to answer your questions here:
I do not have a current picture of me in my western saddle, but I will get one Monday when I go trail riding with a couple of friends. Whoever said the stirrups might be a problem could be correct - I'm so used to riding shorter rather than longer.
For short rides, I do use my English saddle. But if I'm doing an overnighter, I won't use my English for a couple of reasons. First, my knees really start hurting in my English saddle. Second, there's not really a place to attach saddle bags on my English saddle. I don't have the greatest position ever either, so I also prefer a western saddle because there's more security going up and down hills. Only thing I dislike is that I can't jump in it.
I wear jeans when I trail ride. Usually Silvers are my brand. Getting a little personal here, but I get the sores on my inner butt cheeks and a little lower. I can remember peeing after the six hour ride and how much it burnt the sores. :-p Sorry, I know that's a little graphic, but I hope that will help.
Okay, I lied, I do have one picture, but I'm afraid it won't tell you much except maybe the stirrup length. Like I said, I'll get a better one on Monday. Or maybe Sunday if it's as nice as it's supposed to be.
I'm the one in the back.
