Re: Why use a saddle?

I thought I saw a photo in an endurance book (Lew Hollender's???) that
showed an Aussie man winning the Tom Quilty ride on a stallion with only
a halter---no saddle, the rider was only wearing shorts, no equipment at
all and everyone looked great.  I remember I was amazed anyone could do
so well without a saddle, I know I sure couldn't! :-)
