An all purpose saddle was perfect for me while I was on a budget and when I was working a lot of younger horses all at one time. The versatility and durability is great! It helps me keep my position in a strong upright hold for jumping, yet I can lengthen the stirrups and change up the dynamics transitioning into my dressage position.
When looking to buy an all purpose saddle, make sure you find a saddle that fits your body and your horses' confirmation. Also, make sure you can easily ride in a jump position, seated, and lengthen the stirrups for a balanced dressage posture. If you can hold all of the positions comfortably and your horse doesn't show discomfort or constriction of movement at the walk, trot, or canter, you found a good match!
Happy riding !
