View Full Version : Saddles for young horses

I have a deep seat saddle that I had for a horse I no longer have, I know it has to be fitted for her, but I was wondering if it ok to use a deep seated saddle on a young horse just being started????

Yes - Rider can always ride in two point or ride such that most of their weight is on their thighs, not their butt. :lol:

It's not about the saddle, it's about what the rider is doing in the saddle :)

There are no "young horse" saddles - there are only saddles that fit the horse and the rider :)

I don't sit heavy on her and she only get ridden 3 times a week for maybe 20 min.
I like riding in this saddle and wanted to make sure in wasn't going to be a bad decision to use it.

Consider that lots of young horses are started under a Western saddle!
