Reining saddle-stirrups are free for more movement and the area where you sit is smoothes for sliding stops and change of postion.
What do you mean for western saddle like a all round?
I don't quite know what I mean. I see ads for Western Saddles and I just want to know more. I've been trying all day to see a pictoral with different types of western saddles so I can learn the difference. I was actually trying to figure out which one my daughter inherited and I think I've figured out it's a trail saddle, but I'm curious. I like to learn this stuff, and believe it or not, I'm not finding what I'm looking for on the internet. I could read it 1000 times, but I'll understand a lot more if I see pictures.
