saddle ideas for endurance (update need info on wintec pro endurance)
I'm looking for a nice light hunter type saddle for my arab mare. Once I get her legged up I would like to compete her in longer distances(50+), so I want something super comfy.
Can anyone think of a reason a close contact say Collegiate would cause problems in terms of weight distribution? I am a lightweight under 5", so I like a shorter flap as well.
For my longer distance rides I have always competed in custom dressage saddles, but none of my saddles fit the new mare. I also want the ability to get up and out of the saddle, so the shallower the seat the better.
Mare has big shoulders and hardly any wither, so I'm looking into wides.
I'm open to any ideas, but for longer rides endurance and western type saddles kill me.
Thanks for the help!
