Thank you bender, I'll try those.
I've never been to a chiro before but my instructor was talking about the one she uses and I may give him a call. I have back spasms every once in awhile (not when riding) and it may be beneficial just all around. My hands never go numb, but sometimes I will get a shooting pain up my spine when riding. I can't really remember what I was doing at the time that it happened, but It's only happened about 3 times.
netty: None of these horses are mine and so I just ride in whichever saddle fits them. The saddle on the chestnut is a Wintec all purpose. I've found it puts me in a very bizzare position. I feel like it tips my pelvis pretty far forward.
The one on the pinto, I'm not sure what it is but my instructor also hates that.
I've ridden in a pretty nice stubben that I feel like puts me in a better position, but I don't have any images of it. I also rode in a very well made dressage saddle (not sure on the size) that I felt put me in an AMAZING position. The dressage saddle I ride in now is a wintec and I absolutly hate it. It makes me feel like I perch.
I believe most the saddles I ride in are about a 17".
