Appreciating The Wide Variety Of Saddles Available Today

Appreciating the wide variety of saddles available today is all the easier once one learns bit about this fascinating and extremely useful tool for riding a horse. Basically, the saddle is a supporting device for a horseback rider. It's fastened to the animal on its back and is kept there by what's called a girth, for starters.

These days, the most common type of saddle is the one intended for equestrian use, and which is also called an equestrian saddle. While not intended for use on a horse, there are a wide variety of other riding tools made for other animals such as camels, making this simple yet versatile device extremely common throughout the world.

In history, many experts maintain that the saddle first made an appearance about 800 BC, though they were fairly crude and usually just made up of one or two padded blankets and a cinch -- called a surcingle -- that kept the pads attached to the back of a horse. Gradually, the saddle began to improve and by 200 BC a special saddle tree was added to it. By 380, stirrups made their first appearance as well.

Generally speaking, almost all of the various kinds of saddle available today date their genesis to the 1700s and 1800s. Today, most such riding tools have been built specifically for one sort of equestrian or horse riding discipline or another. These include the classic cowboy, or Western, saddle as well as the sleek and minimal equestrian riding tool used in Olympic or other competitions.

If a saddle is properly cared for and maintained, it can last for literally decades. There are many examples of the Western saddle (first pioneered by Mexican vaqueros in the 19th century) that are still being written by men and women who received the saddle from fathers who got them from their fathers who, in turn, received the saddle from their own fathers.

The modern saddle as people know it today is the result of a segmentation into two different general types; the English and the Western saddle. A variation of the English saddle came into being as a means to improve the equestrian discipline of dressage, while certain variations of the Western saddle developed into the classic US Army cavalry saddle, the McClellan.

Saddles and horses go together like peas and carrots, to quote one very famous movie character. They are as ubiquitous in the American Southwest as is John Wayne in any number of famous cowboy movies. They can come in a great many styles and are built to serve many different purposes. The famous equestrian saddle is often seen on the back of many an Olympic-caliber horse, as well.
