Finally found a use for this saddle...

I may possibly have found the only real use for this particular saddle...



maybe if you put it on this guy, he might feel almost level...




See, there is a practical side to everything! LOL

    Crazy saddle!

    What's all that thick padding for in the front of the pommel?

  3. Wow, he'd just have to do a canter/walk transition and you'd be launched right over his head.

  4. Looks like some of those badly made saddles for Breyers that I always saw being used at live shows when I was judging.

  5. I know a lot of older saddles look like that..but not to THAT extreme. The horse would pick up to a lope and you'd wind up on his butt!

    WTF. seriously. How on earth could that be comfortable. The incredibly far forward stirrups would put you right into a rigid chair seat, too!

  7. Is this designed for gaited horses?

    Because about every trail rider I see who's only ever ridden gaited horses & never had lessons sits EXACTLY how this saddle would make you sit.

  8. I've ridden in an older, very well-made saddle that looked almost like this, with the front of the seat nearly at the base of the horn. It looked terribly odd too me, but when I got on and rode the friend's gelding (who was Halter bred QH, with a club foot no-less) around for a few minutes in it, wow! What an unexpectedly comfortable ride! So I won't turn up my nose at a saddle shaped like this just because it looks so strange. BUT! That one looks so cheap and badly-made, I wouldn't want to let it anywhere near a horse. Maybe it's make a good bar stool or something crafty like that! =P
