Saddled Up by Sintakhra Saddled Up by Sintakhra
So much Sweetie Belle as of late. She is absolutely adorable after all...

This idea came to me when I watched Winter Wrap Up a few days ago, when Twilight was putting on her Saddle. -Why- are saddles used in Equestria?

Also, yay, new background! Rarity's Carousel Boutique.

Allow me to explain: Saddles have something called a saddlehorn, but it isn't what you're thinking. 

The saddlehorn, when used by the human rider, is a place to hang reigns. 


Ponies have saddle bags and no one says anything about them because they obviously serve the useful purpose of storing items.  The saddles also has ability to carry items, such as very large diamonds we are not supposed to speak about.  For a human analogy, some of our larger backpacks have frames on them, to which things like sleeping bags can be tied.  A saddle has a flat cushioned surface for carrying items and an horn for hanging strapped items.  The decorative ones are used at formal gatherings to hold drinks and appetizers as one mingles.

I think the saddle on Twilight was what they call a 'saddlebag'. However, it really does look like a normal saddle, now that I think of it. Giggle

She does have saddlebags, but sometimes they wear actual Saddles (such as the guests at the Grand Galloping Gala) :)
