    Re: Got a new saddle!

    This was from last month. They had a costume contest after barrels/poles. She was a 'paint by numbers' (for the non-hoese folk, she is a paint, like a pied bp).

I use it as my every day saddle. Synthetics fit my horse really well, she's very small/slender. The longest I've rode in the saddle has been 6 hours, and I've done that several times. It gets uncomfortable by the 5th hour, but it's not unbearable.

    I prefer synthetic because it cuts down the weight she has to carry. I've come to be a synthetic lover, although, I do miss the smell/sound of a leather saddle! I ride rain or shine, snow or wind so I prefer a cheaper saddle that won't get ruined/stained in the rain. I do have some leather saddles, but I like fun saddles, this one is definitely flashy!

    I've had a Wintec for 8 years, that is one of my favorite saddles to date. That saddle has been soaking wet many times, stepped on by horses, and rolled on and it still works/rides great! I also have a pink 'ostrich leather' and black synthetic saddle by Tahoe Texas Lights. It does get uncomfortable after an hour or two.




    Thank you for your response! It was very helpful and I passed on what you said and the pictures. We'll be picking up a synthetic saddle this week, after sitting on one in person we both love em. And have only heard good things like what you said. Thanks again! And I love all your threads/pictures, gorgeous horses



    Lol, I do love it! It's very unique! It's really fun to run barrels/poles with all her zebra gear

    No problem! Like I said, I really like synthetic, and I hate to admit it, but I do ride in shorts from time to time and leather against sweaty skin hurts really bad! There are a lot of horse people out there that hate synthetics. They are cheap saddles, I'll give them that, but I don't keep saddles for years and years, I change them out all the time. I have a few right now that I ride every now and again just because they are fun to ride in.

    I just picked up this plantation saddle at our local horse auction for $20 which is a fraction of what it's worth. It's an amazing saddle.
