Does anyone use saddle bags on their english saddle when trail riding? I am considering buying some since I am planning on doing some longer trail rides this year, and would love some opinions on what styles/brands people prefer. I am just looking for something that can fit a water bottle, a camera, possibly a snack, nothing too large.
The english bags seem to come in either a pommel attaching or cantle attaching style. I have used both with my western saddle with no issues but am concerned about how they work with an english saddle. I worry that the pommel bags may get in the way (and bounce a lot) especially if we are jumping over logs and such. The cantle bags all appear to slide over the top of the cantle. I worry that this could be uncomfortable while riding. I also worry about how stable both styles of bag will be. Western saddles have so many more places to attach things!
Any personal experiences and opinions will be very appreciated!
