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

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.
