The pony saddle was developed in an effort to provide more comfort for the different body structure found in ponies. Ponies at times tend to have thicker more massive necks, rounder, wider (mutton) withers, and barrel shaped rib cages than that of horses.Even though these areas of the pony are typically larger or just as large as that of the horse, the short back of the pony creates a need for a saddle with these features in mind. Taking into account the rider's of ponies are typically children, teenagers or very small adults, the over-all size of the pony saddle should be reduced to accommodate the size of the rider. Pony saddles or youth saddles are interchangeable and should be used to maximize the comfort of pony and rider.
