When a rider begins shopping for a new saddle, it soon becomes apparent that saddles can cost a lot of money. If the saddle is to be used for show or performance sports, it probably will be fairly expensive. A comfortable pleasure saddle will do nicely if the horse and rider will be out on the trail most of the time. While the cost is not expected to be as much, it is just as important that the saddle fit both the horse and rider correctly.
To make sure you get the best deal on a new saddle, it is important to find discount saddles either online or in a saddle shop. When buying a saddle online it is essential that the correct measurements are used, and make sure the seller guarantees the saddle can be returned if it does not fit correctly.
