Getting into western riding?

Ok I was thinking of starting western riding with my little pony Patch here he is



And I was just wondering do you think this is a good set to start off with?
eBay.ie: Synthetic Western Saddle Set (item 220544211851 end time 20-Feb-10 13:38:13 GMT)
I just will be doing trail riding in a western saddle basically but I want to teach him to neck rein and all and eventually work up to riding in a curb bit and all like that

I wouldn't buy that saddle of any other Synthetic saddle. They are not are good as a real leather saddle. Good Luck, I know you don't want to spend a ton of money but you get what you pay for.

I think you will enjoy riding in a western saddle. I agree about the leather not plastic/fake saddles. Real leather is much safer and better quality. You can find good quality leather saddles fairly cheap on e-bay. Teaching a horse to neck rein is very simple. It wont take long and you will be a one handed girl.

That second saddle you listed doesn't look too terrible. I definitely would go with leather rather than synthetic they're just more comfy.

Just check the sizing and make sure you're getting a good fit for your pony and you. Pay attention to the seat size. You don't want to get a saddle that's way too big. Statelinetack.com has sizing chart to help you figure it out if you need it.
