I have been given the opportunity to start evaluating and retraining foster horses for a local rescue. I sold all my tack when I sold my horse, so I have nothing. I'm trying to find a cheap, older, beater saddle that is an average size, as I will be throwing it on who knows what kind of horse, and I also don't want in it to be too nice...if a horse rolls on it or trashes it, I don't want to have to worry about it too much. Needs to be a 17.5 or 18" (could go with a smaller seat but I have a very long femur, so I guess it depends on how it's shaped). Medium tree, jumping or all purpose, the deeper/stickier the better I really don't know what to expect, just that I need a good, versatile saddle that can handle getting rough handled a bit. Doesn't have to be pretty. Same goes for if you have any girths or bridles that you no longer need.
Will pay for shipping, please email as I rarely remember to check this board. Bronwyn (dot) Johnson12 (at) gmail.com
I have a Wintec All Purpose saddle for sale. Brown synthetic that takes a beating. Exchangeable gullet system so you can alter the width per the horse. It doesn't take much time to do, but you need a screw driver. 16.5" seat, so may be too small for you. Bought it new in 2010 and doesn't have a scratch even with a lot of trail miles. $250 and includes a 42" girth.
The saddle is a supportive structure for a rider or other load, fastened to an animal's back by a girth. The most common type is the equestrian saddle designed for a horse, but specialized saddles have been created for camels and other creatures. It is not known precisely when riders first began to use some sort of padding or protection, but a blanket attached by some form of surcingle or girth was probably the first "saddle," followed later by more elaborate padded designs. The solid tree was a later invention, and though early stirrup designs predated the invention of the solid tree, the paired stirrup, which attached to the tree, was the last element of the saddle to reach the basic form that is still used today. Today, modern saddles come in a wide variety of styles, each designed for a specific equestrianism discipline, and require careful fit to both the rider and the horse. Proper saddle care can extend the useful life of a saddle, often for decades.
