My horse needs a narrow and yes, the saddle fitter wants shorter flaps for me as both myself and my horse are tiny and longer flaps seemed to irritate him.
I've now tried a Klimke, Ainsley, Cobra and a Schleese. Hated the Ainsley from minute one (which is ok, my horse hated it too), Schleese was wonderful but it was an 18" so really huge on me and was a tad too wide for my horse, now debating the Klimke vs the Cobra.
My horse was sore in his withers and horribly cranky today, called the saddle fitter and she's coming out Fri. To watch me ride him in both the Klimke and the Cobra to try and figure out what's making him sore as we are unsure if it's one of the saddles or because he was being a dolt yesterday and what was supposed to be a short ride turned into a very long one as his response to anything and everything was OOOOOH CANTER!!!
Took nearly an hour to get him listening and behaving.
