Laura B on Aug 29, 2014
I have made many purchases from State Line Tack over the years and have always been satisfied with the quality of the items they sell and how quickly they deliver the items. The prices are usually competitive or below the National average for the same item elsewhere. Thanks State Line Tack. Your always the first place I turn to for any tack I'm looking for and also pet supplies. You will continue to have me and my family as loyal customers.

Can this child's tandem ride saddle be used with an english saddle as well?
Anne F on Apr 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have not tried to fasten it to an English saddle. I do not believe it would work. The tandom overlaps the back of a western saddle and is fastened tightly against the back of the seat. My fear would be that their isn't enough to an English saddle for it to stay safely in place. My daughter enjoyed ridding on the tandom saddle. It boosted her confidence after a bad fall.
Re: tandem saddle--Could someone ever attach a pic/ or tell me how these straps should attach to the saddle? I am a bit confused! Shawna
shawna on Sep 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Looks like they have it attached to the belly band and at top of saddle...but a better picture would be nice. We just attach the straps anywhere and make sure they are fastened snuggly. We have never had a problem.
Does this need a saddle pad under it also or does it has the "extra bit" of cushion?
Pam L on Dec 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it needs another pad under it, but we never actually used it. That piece of foam in the front is so big that the child can't even reach the person in the saddle to hang on to - and unless the horse is HUGE, the child is sitting on top of the tail. I took mine apart and took the front piece of foam out but couldn't get my granddaughter to try it again.
How to attach the ride behind tandem saddle?
A shopper on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: So sorry I cant answer this question. I gave it as a gift. The person I gave it to said they loved it though and easy to use. It comes with directions.
What is the length of this? I'm curious if it will be too long as my horse has a short back. Thanks
A shopper on Mar 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought this for my daughter and her son rides in it. Her horse has a long back and it fits him fine, but my horse has a shorter back and it rides good on him also. It is approximately 16 inches long. I hope this helps you.
How do I restrap on one of the stirrups? I have tried to find any videos to show me but no luck an I try to go off by pictures but still no luck.
Cassie on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I find that putting the straps through the rings of the girth works wel. You can adjust the straps to size easily rhis way.
We have an Aussie western saddle - would this work with it?
Shirley T on Jul 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe it will fit any saddle. It has two clip-on adjustable straps on both sides. I am using it with a full size square western saddle and pull it up close and snug over the skirt. We are enjoying the rides together!
