Oh, and seeing as Gamer is going to be in hunter green now, that saddlebag is staying.
WOW! Even my Percheron cross didn't use the purple! He used the blue except when he was porky and then it was only the red. I have seen those purple ones and they are almost flat they are so wide! I wondered how one's legs fit around the wide saddles.

Drat on the green saddlebag, but Gamer will look fabulous in any color

It has the CAIR...riding without the pad tomorrow will tell me if it will work or not, if I see even a spec of dry spot its going to be a no-go.

The saddle currently has the white (extra wide) gullet in it right now so the fat mare would need a wide wintec to find a gullet wide enough

I'm staying positive...the right saddle will come our way eventually

Hi there, I'm new to endurance riding and saddle fitting. My Arab mare has narrow shoulders. I'm going to do the at-home wire measuring trick I saw on the tack forum, but if anyone has experience with fitting a more narrow horse let me know. My boyfriend's dressage saddle fits her...sort of...but I can't stand riding in it. I've never purchased a saddle so I'm still trying to understand which measurements go where and what to consider.

Thanks!

I am not an expert, but is there a tack store nearby that will try the saddles to your horse? That might be the best way to learn and see what fits your horse.

I live in the middle of nowhere...Nothing is nearby! :)

I am actually going to make a plaster cast of her back (maybe, who knows if she'll stand for that!) and take it with me to a few places and see how it fits.

I have a brand new Pampa Light Endurance saddle for $900 plus shipping. I used it once and am debating returning it (I have until this weekend to decide). Doesn't include the stirrups or girth. Brand new its $1600 but I got it on sale. :)

It slides back on my mare but I think its just an issue with my mare since the Prestige did the same thing...we aren't used to an English girth rigging. Very comfortable, we gaited/trotted 10 miles on various terrain with no issues. Its about 12 lbs, leather, fiberglass and sheepskin.
