SHOW SADDLES FOR HORSES
Show saddles is designed to show off the horse's conformation, in particular the shoulder, therefore a minimal saddle with a close fit and straight-cut flap.
On the show saddle there is a thin knee block and normally a flatter seat, however later models now have a medium knee block along with a deeper seat.
Show competitors ride with their leg placed underneath their body and their hips over their heel, a position more forgiving on the horse's back that encourages better movement.
The best way to find a well-fitted show saddle is to speak with a qualified saddler before making a purchase.
