Why did you choose this?
How do you know what size to get?
Best Answer: When trying to find the right "fit", sit in an English saddle at the local tack shop. Place your hand, fingers together and palm flat, behind you on the back of the saddle right where your butt stops and you feel leather. There should be one hand's with in that space, to the top of the cantle (back). If there is too little or too much, go to the next size up or down. I hope this helps you out. Good Luck :)
Which saddle set is better for me? I am extremely new to English, and I want to show jump. I already bought a saddle pad and half pad. Which is better for me?
Silver Fox English Starter Set 15 Havana
Best Answer: Well the saddle that I purchase was for my daughter. She is 14 years old 5'4 and I got her the EquiRoyal Event Saddle Package and she love it.... Hope this can help.
Does the saddle come with a saddle pad?
Best Answer: The set we purchased 2 years ago still looks very good. I purchased two for my daughters who show only in 4 h shows and do not ride every day. It does not come with a pad nor does it come with rubbers for the iron stirrups. the girth is also not a great one, so plan on buying saddle pad, iron pads and a good girth. Even at that , the set is a good value and holds up well.
What kind of bit does the package include?
Best Answer: The bit that came with the package was a snaffle bit with D rings. I bought the set for my granddaughter to learn to ride English and to use in training her horse. it has worked very well and she has placed in competition with it.
I need a saddle for jumping. Is this a good jumper saddle?
Best Answer: good for a beginning all purpose... I used it for jumping training
i need a 15" and my horse is a 14.2 hand arabian. what size to get?
Best Answer: We got this for 9yo daughter 18 months ago. Our arabian is about the same height but not super slight of build like some. The saddle fits fits her and my daughter great. We had to add extra holes to the stirrup leathers for her. We immediately changed out the bit & cinch-cheap. The bridle is starting to show wear. The top finish is starting to wear off/crack. For the price, I would buy the set again. I am a average female adult & the 15" saddle is too small for me.
If i had a 15.3 hh Thoroughbred what size would i get?
Best Answer: It depends on what size you the rider needs. As for all saddles once you get the size you need ie 15". Then You need to check the fit on the horse.
do the irons have stirrup pads?
Best Answer: the set i ordered did ship with pads , I was surprised as i did not expect them and ordered a set that i did not need, but when working with horses a back up set is always good.
Should I order a 17 seat if I am a western seat of 16?
Best Answer: Remember this is a general guide â€“ the size, weight and height of the rider combined will affect how different saddles feel based on their design. Western saddle measurements are 2" smaller than English or Aussie measurements. Example, a Western 15" saddle equates to a 17" English or Aussie saddle.
does this AWESOME SADDLE come with all of the things in the photo???
Best Answer: Yes it does it comes with the saddle, girth (but I would order another one that fits your horse as the girth is not that great), bridle and reins, saddle pad as well as a standard loosing ring snaffle at least that is the one that came with my set anyway. But be careful my black saddle is rubbing off the black exposing a red leather underneath. But if you don't mind that its a wonderful starter set
how to i find my saddle size with out a saddle?
Best Answer: Use this information to help determine your seat size:
***These are general guidelines, they do not guarantee the fit*** Upper Leg Length Seat Size Up to 16 1/2" 15" seat Up to 18 1/2" 16" seat Up to 20" 16 1/2" seat Up to 21 1/2" 17" seat Up to 23" 17 1/2" seat Up to 23" 18" seat
Does this work on a "beefy" horse?
Best Answer: I have used this saddle on a Quarter Horse and it fit rather well, I have also put this saddle on my friend's Percheron cross mare she was on the "beefy" side and it was an OK fit it was on the small side and we needed a bigger girth as the one that came with it was too small. I may not recommend this saddle for that for a horse of that side because it was not a proper fit for a horse of that size. However if you plan to ride a beefy Quarter Horse or breed that tends to have a wider back and deeper girth like the Standardbred then this is a good saddle just have to change the girth.
is this leather real? and would it be okay on arabians?
Best Answer: Not sure if it will fit your horse or not, only you can answer that question. Second, I actually purchased 3 of these packages and for the cost they are great. I have had mine for 3+ years, one I use on a regular basis and the other two I use when I show. The only thing I bought extra were girths, but I did that so I had the proper fitting girth for my horse. Real leather, maybe but it's not the highest quality leather - I didn't expect it to be considering the price of the package. To sum it up, I am pleased with these saddle packages as it meet my expectations.
Does it come with stirrup grips?
Best Answer: Yes it does. I didn't realize, and bought a set which I didn't need. It's not a fancy saddle, but for the price, it's great.
I am 14 and I am 5'9 with really long legs . I am worried that the flaps will not be long enough. Do u think the flaps will be long enough ?
Best Answer: Flap Length: 16"
I have long legs. Will the flaps be long enough ?
Best Answer: Bought this product a year ago it is my absolute favorite Sable for a cheap one! Due to your long legs...depending what size you get you should be fine. My friend uses my saddle and she has longs legs never seemed to bother her and she jumps in it all the time. Mines and 16 I'm only 5ft tall she's about 5'6
will this saddle and girth fit a 14.5 to 15 hand paso fino and me standing about 5'3 to 5'4?
Best Answer: The saddle will fit. I got it for my 16-17 hand TB and it fits her great... The girth on the other hand is crap you'll probably have to buy one that will fit
does this set come with a saddle pad, do the irons come with stirrup pads, and are the reins split or full?
Best Answer: The package includes the saddle, 4 1/2" stirrup irons, 1" x 54" stirrup leathers, a 48" web girth and a horse-size snaffle bridle complete with 5/8" x 54" reins and 5" bit. Accessories styles and sizes may vary. so the irons may or may not come with pads. English reins are not split.
Will this saddle and girth fit a 15.2 hand quarter horse??
Best Answer: IN general I would say it should......but there are many variables to saddle fit (wither height, gullet width, etc) Girth size will depend on barrel type as billets on a 15 in saddle tend to be on the short side. My suggestion is to call sustomer service and talk with them about your horse's confirmation before making a rock solid decision. But again, in general I would say it should fit and the girth will probably need to be on the long side if you have a round barrelled horse!
what does the kit come with?
Best Answer: Bridle, caveson, reins, bit, saddle, stirrup leathers, stirrups and a girth. Great saddle for the price.
I am new and I would like to known how to determine the size of the saddle?
Best Answer: When you see a saddle size of "18 inches" That 18 inches is obtained by measuring from the silver nail on the front (pommel) to the middle of the back of the seat (the cantle).
If you are trying to find a rider's size seat a good rule of thumb is to measure from hip to knee. That should be a fairly good estimate. Others things to consider when buying a saddle is the height of the pommel (if your horse has high withers you want a high pommel) and width of the gullets. The width should be wider for very broad horses or drafts. Hopes this helps!
I am looking for a beginner English saddle I do western but am trying English and would like to know which english saddle I should buy?

Like how the saddle looks, Is there any way I can get just the saddle?
Best Answer: Yes just search the saddle name only
Considering purchasing this set for my niece to start English lessons. Her horse is a 15.2 APHA. She's not as wide as some stock horses, but much wider than your typical TB or Arabian. How well would you say this saddle would fit?
Best Answer: For the price, this is an excellent set. For an inexpensive saddle, it is fairly flexible, although when I first got it, I oiled it really well. My Arabian has quite a round barrel, and it fits him fine. Haven't tried it on my husband's "tank" quarterhorse. It really is a good deal for the price, and the irons come with pads, although they're not shown in the photo. I purchased some, and didn't need to.

Does it come with a bit?

Can I see a picture of the knee rolls?
Best Answer: My daughter is now 12 yrs old. We bought this Silver Fox English Starter kit (14") because she was interested in riding English since she had previously been western. She loved this saddle. It fit her well. She felt stable and did not slip around. The knee rolls specifically gave her security and did not diminish the overall look of the saddle. This saddle has a classy look. Even as a beginner she fit in with the rest of her class and did very well. I believe this to be an outstanding package and would recommend it to others.
will this saddle fit my saddlebred?
Best Answer: If you know anything at all about saddle fit you certainly know that every individual horse has a different width and shape of back and that there is no such thing as a universal saddle. If your horse usually goes in a medium tree then i would say it is fairly true to size, perhaps slightly narrow.
I have a 15hh Rocky Mountain do you think it would fit him?
what size would you but for a 15 hands quarter horse and a person being 5'9????
Best Answer: The seat size is to fit you the saddle itself should fit any horse but proper fit for both you and the horse is key. I would try out saddles of similar brand to see what fits best. I have had this saddle on a 15h quarter horse myself and it fit her very well girth was too small so I would suggest a good girth the one that comes with this saddle is one that would not be my first choice. I hope this helps :)
what size would I get for a 15 hands quarter horse and me being 5'9????
