Child's Cordura English Leadline Saddle
All Purpose Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: Child's Cordura English Leadline Saddle
Category: All Purpose Saddles

Purchase: I needed something for the smallest disabled children to ride in beyond the bareback pad, for those kids who needed a bit more stability on the horse. I also wanted something my half-sisters-in-law could ride in. I purchased this at a local tack store for $75. It did not come with any fittings.

Likes: This is the itsiest-bitsiest, teensiest-weensiest saddle on the market! It is perfectly designed for children between the ages of one and five, and has a little grab bar on the front for them to hang on to. It is light enough that those little arms can carry it all by themselves, and durable enough that it stays sound even when those little arms drop is in the mud. The horse doesn't even feel it on his back; it's lighter than my racing saddle. Easy to clean because it's cordura.

Dislikes: It doesn't come with fittings. It is quite hard to find leathers short enough and irons small enough for this saddle. It is also hard to find a girth long enough; I need to use my adjustable girth with the extension, or I simply put a cheap surcingle all the way around the saddle. The saddle itself is excellent, but finding fittings for it is not easy.

Quality: This is a rather flat, lightweight cordura saddle that seems to fit kids in diapers well. The tree is a hard plastic, and because it is so small it only sits on top of the horse, so it fits any size horse or pony.

Summary: The perfect saddle for those ambitious and eager youngsters who are really too young to ride in a big kid's saddle. Easy to clean, fun to show off, and everyone loves it. It fits anyone (horse-wise) so you can even order it online and not worry about size. Just make sure you can find fittings before you spend a lot of money on a saddle and fall in love...but can't use it.
