Brand New Western Saddles Are Not Always The Best

Sep 15, 2008
When it comes to buying Western saddles for your horses and you want the best value for money, why not look for pre-owned ones? In this way, you could get some excellent gear at one third of the price it would have cost you otherwise, plus you have the advantage of getting horse saddles that are already broken in and ready for use.

The best places to look for good pre-owned saddles would be anywhere where there are horses for sale, or places where you can get horseback riding lessons. If you do not see the 'saddles for sale' typical sign hanging anywhere, then just go ahead and ask if they have saddles for sale.

When you are looking for proper pre-owned saddles, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind, such as the brand of the saddle, the model of the saddle, the fit to the horse and the present status of the saddle. The brand and the model of the saddle will tell you the actual quality of the saddle. Good brands saddles, no matter how old, are as good as gold.

The fit and status of the saddle is important, as this will influence your ride; the horse will not listen to your body language if it does not accept the saddle. This is why it is very important that you find a saddle that not only matches perfectly with what you have in mind, but also is comfortable for your horse.

Do not buy any used Western saddles over the internet, no matter how beautiful and perfect they look. Buying anything that is even remotely connected with horse supply should never be bought unless it is checked, by putting it on the horse, and also inspected for quality.

The horse is not an animal that can be trifled with. Many horses refuse to listen to their riders if they are unhappy with their saddles and other gear. Check out the Western horse tack shops as well. For information on what to look for, speak with a veteran horse-rider or educate yourself online.

Anytime you shop for Western saddles or anything pertaining to a horse, the best bet would be to purchase a pre-owned one that can be tested for gentleness and readiness. You need to keep in mind that new is not always the best, especially with regard to saddles. The best saddle is the used one because it has been broken in and the horse will find it comfortable.
