Slightly stupid question - will full-seats damage my saddle?
There's a pair I have my eye on, I've been riding in dressage saddles a lot lately and will be working w/ a dressage trainer this spring, so I was going to get them.
However, I also ride a lot in my own Hermes jumping saddles, and much as I think a saddle should be tough enough to withstand regular wear, I can see how the seam of my jeans hasn't been so great for my saddle's twist...........
So will the slight grippiness of the full seats hurt at all?
Okay, good! I don't actually like the sticky feel at all - why I've never had full-seats before - but a pair of breeches I really want look much nicer in the full-seat style. Sort of silly fashion victim logic. Thanks!
