Best invention ever
My 2 year old daughter rides in this in the arena & trail rides. She loves it the stirrups even go short enough, has a handle she can hold on to. It really holds her in well & she seems comfortable in it. Was easy to attach to both my saddles. Have gone on 2+ hour trail rides stays in place & love the she is able to go with me.

Simple and quick to install, horsee accepts without problems
Bought for two young boys who were nervous riding alone. Installs in 1 minute once you set strap lengths for that particular saddle/horse. Lots of padding for the bum , and very flexible. Boys took to it quick. Easily last through numerous kids , if not generations. Fabric so can be washed.

It is a good idea
We love the idea, and my daughter loves to ride with me. With our old saddle, I haven't figured out how to fix it where it doesn't slip. We could use some more rings on our saddle. It is a little bulky too. Would only work on a full size horse as it is quite wide.

Good product, does what it is supposed to.
Like another reviewer said, this saddle does not come with any instructions as to how to hook it up so that was really confusing, as the way we had figured it to be left it unstable and unreliable.Once we figured it out (looking at pictures online) it was much more stable/reliable. My 6 year old and 13 year old both use it and enjoy it. My 6 year old is 48lbs, my 13 year old is 90lbs. I'm happy to be able to ride with them, and have them be comfortable.

Do not buy.
The reviews made me think this was a great idea. However, it did not work at all for us! It came with no instruction on how to hook it up. So we did the best we could. We couldn't seem to get it secure, and when we tried to tighten it up one of the nylon straps broke off. Our kids never did get to ride in them. We bought them in Feb. when they were on sale. But didn't hook them up till we really started riding in April, so it was too late to return. Now they are just sitting. Sure wish we had the $100.00 back that we spent on two of them.

Fantastic!
So glad I found this! Best way to take my kids with me. Very secure. We walk, trot and lope with it. Highly recommended, (with a safe horse).

We love it!
My 4 year old granddaughter, Patches, our horse, and I just love our new tandem saddle seat. She can now ride comfortably with me and safer too. I think that it's a quality product. Thanks!

My son loves it!
I have a 7 year old son that weight 45 lbs, and is tall for his age. He loves this. It's great with the stirrups, and the small cantle in the front has a handle he can hang onto. Also has hooks to fasten his own water bottle too. I was tired of putting him in front of the saddle with me, and he didn't feel comfortable enough in back for me to lope. He says he butt feels much better now! Would defintely recommend this to everyone!

for my small grandchildren to be able to ride with me
DIANE C on Feb 27, 2016
I bought this to take my friend's kids on rides. I also bought the "mustang nylon kiddy-up Stirrups" for when the kids feel comfortable enough to sit in the saddle alone. (I'll still be leading the horse ofcourse!)

Does the saddle have enough padden in it that the child is not in pain while riding?
tonya f on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is exactly what we wanted and our 3 year old grandson enjoys riding on it with us. It is comfortable and it is secured well to the saddle with 2 straps on each side so it does not move.
can the tandem come off the saddle?
jamie on Jan 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it detaches from saddle.
No it doesn't hold a child secure. I used mine one time. After a short distance on a trail me and my son started to go up a very slight incline. The tandem saddle came loose and my son started sliding back, fortunately I grabbed him before he went of the back of my horse. I looked over the tandem saddle and a couple of the straps had broken. Pretty much any where a little bit of pull was placed on the saddle it had torn a hole.
ate there safety straps for the child?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you mean like a seat belt, no there are not any. As you can see in the photo there is a small saddle horn for the child to hang on to, or they still sit close enough that they can hang on to your belt loops or waist. The way it attaches to the saddle it pretty secure and didn't slip around. Stirrups are helpful in child keeping balance also. (doesn't come with instructions, had to refer to this photo to attach)
Will this attach to all western saddles?
Samuel L on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe it will. There are no instructions with it,but you attach the long straps to the saddle dee ring. This is a nice seat for kids, but I attached a tie down strap to the rings on the place where they can hold on, as it did not come with a strap. Any strong rope or band with snaps will work for more security.
how does the tandem saddle get secured to the saddle? No instructions were included.
Annette B on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It attaches to the cinch, I had to YouTube it for instructions! You will never get it right if u don't. Very lazy on Tough-1's part not to include them! It's made well but the stirrips are wayyyy to long and my daughter is 9! Had to buy an assist set to sew on myself
Can this attache to an English saddle?
A shopper on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not to sure, about English, I ride western. There are 2 straps that attach on both sides, one I tie to saddle bag ties, the other to cinch. I did find that there are really no directions to follow other than the picture. I was not real satisfied with how it connected to saddle at all. Had to gerri rig basically. It's a good thought but not sure I would purchase another. Hope this has been some help. Happy trails.
what is the child weight limit for this?
jessica b on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is not really a weight limit for this item as it's basically a pad for the child to sit on. As long as the child can fit comfortably in the seat then this item will work for them. The weight limit would be determined more by what horse you're riding, if it is big enough to handle the weight of a larger child or not.
What size is this I'm trying to find the right saddle still never found one so I can e to this sight again?
Mackenzie H on Jan 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This "add-on" saddle will fit a toddler to about 10 yr old depending on size of child. It can only attach to another saddle. It is made of a canvas type material and is sturdy. You cannot use this saddle by itself. I hope this is helpful.
How long are the stirrups? or How long can the inseam on my grandson be before he outgrows it?
TERRY H on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When adjusted all the way out and measured from the center of the seat to the top of the stirrup tread it measures 32".
