I am looking to buy a good used saddle for trail ridding. I ride western now but I was thinking of buying an Australian saddle(with a horn).
I have heard people say they were really comfortable. Does anyone ride Australian? Are they really comfortable? Pros and cons? And do u think it will be hard for my horse to adjust from western to Aussie?
The best thing about them is you can wedge your leg into the saddle above the knee when the trail gets rough or your horse acts up. Not all horses like this saddle, it has to fit right.
I like the cordura saddle for trail riding. It is fairly cheap and extreamly lightweight but solid construction. A great everyday saddle.
