The use for hunt seat saddles
Hunt seat saddles, as the name suggests, is primarily used for hunting animals. A hunter uses his horse to jump over obstacles when hunting and hunt seat saddles are meant to make jumping more secure. Hunt seat saddles usually have soft seats and spring tree to absorb shock during landing. Finding some saddle pads beneath it may not be uncommon too.
