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!)

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.

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.

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.
