You can jump in a saddle seat saddle the same way that you could jump in a western saddle or bareback. However, it will be difficult because the balance in a saddle seat saddle is different from that in a hunt seat saddle. With a saddle seat saddle, your weight is further back, and the stirrups are much longer. Also, saddle seat saddles lack knee rolls. If you are going over high jumps, it will be very hard to keep your balance in a saddle seat saddle.

No. Hurdle saddles or jumping saddles have knee rolls and a deeper seat which helps to hold the rider into the saddle.

This depends on what you mean by 'best for eventing'. You'll get the best results from a dressage saddle in the dressage phase. After that you can use either the same jumping saddle for stadium and cross country or you can buy two seperate saddles for each jumping phase. If you want one saddle then a eventing or all purpose saddle with a forward flap would work best over most fences and jumps. For two saddles, a specialized eventing saddle and a seperate jumping saddle for stadium. Eventing saddles for cross country will have very forward flaps for galloping and stadium jumping saddles will be a bit deeper in the seat for higher jumps. The brand doesn't matter as much, so long as it fits the hrose and rider correctly and will hold up to the amount of use you intend for it.

Well im not sure if this is all the saddles for a horse but here are the ones i know of: Western Saddle, English Saddle, and Jumping Saddle. Hope this helps! There are many different sadles for horses. There are western saddles and English saddles. There are many styles of western saddles: cutting saddle for cow cutting, barrel racing saddles, trail riding saddles, western pleasure saddles, reining saddles, and saddles designed for different horses, like gaited horse saddles, which are shaped and positioned to allow the horse maximum shoulder movement so they can gait more freely. They all have several things in common: The saddle horn, most have a back girth, they are shaped differently than English saddles in the high cantle, and they have a rectangular skirt, and most have decorations, which can be sliver, or just carvings in the leather. Western saddles were designed for the cowboys, who spent long hours in the saddle. They wanted comfort and needed something to tie the rope to, saddle bags to, and other things, so the western sadle was invented with a saddle horn, a back shaped well for holding saddle bags, and several little strongs hanging off for tieing stuff to. English saddles include: jumping, dressage, all-purpose, saddle seat, trail riding, and a few others. They are shaped diferently, as in they are shaped more to fit the persons body. They only have 1 girth, no saddle horn, a low cantle. English saddles were designed for good contact with the horse. They are less bulky than the western saddles and allow a better feel of the horse.

It's how the saddle attaches to the seat post. Regular saddles have two saddle rails that can be slid fore-aft in the clamp Pivotal saddles are kinda bolted directly to the top of the post instead. Makes for a stronger connection but with less adjustability.

Saddle seat is a type of English riding that involves a high-stepping horse, and the rider has his/her legs farther out in front than in most English saddles. Western is a type of riding where the saddle has a horn, and is deeper and more secure than an English saddle. Western riders do not jump.

It is a cross between a classic dressage saddle and a close contact jumping saddle - also known as a VSD or "all purpose" saddle. It is meant for flatwork and low jumps. These types of saddles in the USA have a bit of a more forward flap and higher cantle, while those made in England proper have a straighter flap and lower cantle. The English-made saddles are more true to the idea of the working hunter saddle and are generally of much better quality than those widely distributed in the USA. In addition, you will find these saddles referred to as "GP or AP" saddles in the USA, and as "working hunter" saddles in England.

There are many different kinds of saddles and many very good saddle manufacturers. Saddles are broken into 2 basic types of saddles. The western and English saddles. Most saddle makers usually make one or the other of these 2 kinds. Western saddle makers cater to different riding styles. Western pleasure, roping, cutting, equitation, trail, show, are a few. English riders also have many choices with hunt seat, all purpose, dressage, saddle seat, and close contact. From the outside looking in it seems confusing but before long you will have it narrowed down to what will work best for you and your horse.

Crosby Saddles. I have just started jumping and am looking for a Crosby saddle. They are amazing! You may also want to look for a used saddle. Wintec is also a good brand to look at. They make good quality synthetic saddles. Synthetic means that they are made without leather, shortening the expected lifespan of the saddle, but making it cheaper and easier to care for. Most Wintec saddles also have an adjustable gullet system so you can change the saddle to fit the horse more easily. If you are going to be showing though, you should check if synthetic saddles are accepted in your area.
