Can you jump in an all purpose saddle?

A: If you are comfortable in your saddle, your lower leg feels secure and in a good position, you are in balance with your horse, and your trainer hasn’t suggested otherwise, I’d say you’re fine jumping in a GP saddle at this height.

Can all purpose saddle be used for jumping?

Here in the states, we list it as “all-purpose” because it has a deep secure seat and longer flaps than many jump saddles. This saddle is supportive enough for a rider to do lower level dressage, trail ride, fox hunt or jump with equal success.

What kind of saddle do you use for jumping?

Many riders use close contact saddles for jumping. They are characterized by a shallow seat which allows the rider to lift themselves out of the saddle when going over an obstacle. Close-contact saddles are also designed to let the rider stay in a forward position, which is essential for jumping.

What kind of saddle do I have?

Look for the manufacturer’s name and logo to be stamped in plain sight on the saddle. Check on the back, the skirts or on a plate underneath the jockey. Contact the saddle’s manufacturer for information about the saddle’s age. Most manufacturers will be able to tell you the age of the saddle using the serial number.
