Specialized Saddle fitting?? Sliding backwards

Hi all!
So my new specialized Eurolight just came in and even with the breastcollar still slipped back. I tried this exact saddle (except with western rigging not dressage rigging) and it fit great on a 25 miler. So where do I add the shims to stop it from sliding back? Do I need to move the pads in or out??

It may be too wide. You can try moving the entire fitting pads up towards the gullet around an inch each.

You buy it from Shelby ? She will probably be at VA highlands. Usually she sets up a booth and helps people get them adjusted.

Last time I spoke with her she said she's doing biltmore hope for horses but not VA Highlands. :(.

I'm still debating doing highlands...it's a long drive!! And I don't have a partner for a ride and tie. Maybe an LD would be good though. You going?

No my sister is having a family reunion that weekend, figured it might be a good place to meet chicks :),
Just got a new horse , will stick to flat lands for awhile. I honestly don't get alot of enjoyment out of trying to make time going straight up and straight down all day. Will probably look at Sandhills in the fall, maybe skymount.

Can you ask for sliding/hard stops without sliding plates? Brighteyes Reining 16 04-30-2012 09:12 AM
