Yes! I do Endurance races and we ride in English saddles.
Yes but if it's somebody new and we put some in a western saddle so they feel more comfortable and sometimes when we put them in English saddles they feel less comfortable and feel like they're going to fall off but we all know they're not 😁
Yea my friend and I do, we both only own English saddles so we just use them
You can I do all the time
Yeah I mean you can, for me it's not as comfortable or safe but you can go on trails in any saddle
yes typically its a western saddle because its easier for beginners but lots of ppl use english saddles too.
