What is the difference between a mounted and and unmounted?

MONTED

UNMONTED

A mounted saddle is one that includes mounts such as stirrups, leathers and girth.

An unmounted saddle does not come with these. 

Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy a fully mounted saddle.

Sometimes it’s a better idea to buy an unmounted saddle and choose the mounts yourself as you may wish to use a different girth etc

Mounted is kind of like having a DVD in the optic drive–its loaded, unencrypted and useable.

Unmounted is just the opposite, encrypted and unavailable–data safe mode.
