I ride in and English general purpose treed saddle currently and a pelham bit ( her showring bit) But I am looking to get her going bitless and have bought a new side pull halter to try her in it could double for riding and tying her up should I need it. She is a very safe , sensible pony.
Saddle wise the other day at a friends house she showed me a freemax treeless western saddle that I would hope would fit my pony they look so comfy.I am looking for saddles that come in xwide for our wide Native ponies with no withers. I have some saddle bags with drink older that my youngest daughter bought me as a present.
What do you guys suggest for longer distance riding main priority is comfort for my pony but following that comfort for me as a middle aged rider :) I would like to start at a couple of hours and build up from there to doing at least day rides with overnight camping.
