Not sure about buying this saddle
The saddle itself is quite well made and should last a good while with proper care and maintenance. However, three things concern me and one is that it is a saddle you are used to using. If you are used to the support of a western saddle and move to a close contact, it may be very uncomfortale until you get used to it. The second is that the horse you use it on is used to being under a close contact saddle. The third and most important is that you indicate that you ride ' all different horses and ponies '. You do not clarify if you are wishing to use one saddle on all. I do hope not as saddles are not one size fits all. The saddle must be fitted to your 'seat' and the tree width and rise must properly fit the size and shape of the horses back. If you are unfamiliar with this, I suggest you learn how to fit a saddle before buying anything.
