First of All, what is western pleasure riding and what kind of saddle does it require?
Western Pleasure Riding is a horse discipline that looks to the untrained eye like 'normal western riding'. However it is a competition discipline that is looking for calmness, ease of movement and how relaxed the horse is. It is a sport that judges the different gaites and temperament, control of movement and conformation.
Keep the following in mind before ordering your saddle:
- Most quality saddles are made on order, hence it can take a month or so before you receive it
- Quality western saddles lasts a long time, you might want to check out second hand western saddles before you go ahead and buy one brand new (depending on your budget)
- Remember there is no right or wrong answer to what saddle to get, the best one will be one that fits your circumstances such as your budget, location, time and your horses conformation and back.
