I have a horse, bought a year ago, coming on nicely now we have sorted out a few of her issues Smile

she came with a synthetic saddle, and unfortunately I am not able to afford to replace it at present.However, I would really like to have a go at some local dressage comps soon, just for fun, to help bring her on, and take her out and about to see things. Will a synthetic saddle be ok for this? Or should i wait until I can afford a new one?

No reason at all not to use a synthetic saddle. I think your plan sounds great, just the thing to bring her along nicely. Have fun!

Synthetic will be fine as long as it the right cut for dressage. Is it pretty straight? Hope you have a good time.

it is just a gp, but doesn't restrict her shoulder too much, and am only talking about doing prelim - novice stuff...... nothing too difficult (yet) Grin

Dh will have a fit if I buy 1 new saddle let alone 2! Shock Grin
