There are various types of saddles which do not fit the dressage, close contact or all purpose category.  These include the SIDE SADDLE, the VAULTING SADDLE, the BAREBACK PAD/SADDLE, the ENDURANCE saddle, the SADDLE SEAT saddle, the PLANTATION saddle, and the RACING SADDLE, (sometimes known as racing plates).  There  are also ENGLISH SADDLES  designed for specific breeds – ie, the Arabian, Morgan, etc., whose conformation requires adjustments to the shape of the saddle.
