Horse Tack, Saddles
A saddle is used for a rider to sit on the horse with. It adds security and function depending on what a rider is doing. For example if a rider is on a cutting horse a cutting saddle is used. It is a deep seated saddle that allows the rider to the stability to stay in the saddle when the horse is making quick moves from side to side to keep a cow away from its herd.
Saddles vary in quality and price. Some that are just basic all purpose or Western pleasure saddles can be on the less expensive end and do vary in quality while a more specialized saddle like a dressage saddle can be more expensive.
Buying a well cared for used saddle can save you money on even the highest quality saddle. If you are in the market for a saddle keep your eyes and ears open for deals through your local stable, friends with horses, tack sales and websites like craigslist. You are bound to find a deal that is a fraction of the new price.
Saddles are made for different body types of horses so keep that in mind when making your purchase. The tree of the saddle can make all the difference if your horse has a narrow or broad back. Do your research because you want your horse to be just as comfortable as you are.
