The All Purpose saddle, also known as a general purpose saddle, was designed to allow riders to use one saddle when riding on flat or over jumps. The all purpose saddle design has a deep seat with a long, but somewhat forward flap. These flaps usually have padding for under the leg, which gives support while jumping. All purpose saddles are ideal for amateur-owner and low-level junior competitors. As all purpose saddles often have a deep, secure feeling seat, they are ideal for younger riders, unpredictable horses and can be quite popular in trail riding, endurance riding and casual hacking.
