    Yeah, I didn't see any accusations or fault-pointing either, just several suggestions about a poor-fitting saddle and some good questions for your honest consideration (what groundwork have you done, is there a contract in place, etc.). Not sure how any offense could have been taken by any of these replies, but I'm glad everything worked out for you in the end.

    Poor saddle fit can cause erratic behavior. Horses aren't legos, they have certain back widths and length quirks, so you need to find tack that fits them AND you.

    Sounds like the saddle didn't fit, so he acted up.

    If you consider that piece of advice finger pointing, then you are in the wrong passion my friend.

    If a saddle didn't fit my Arab, and they seem to be particularly sensitive, he let me know in uncertain terms.1. Tail switching 2. Tightrope walking 3. High head carriage 4 Refuse to move. By this point just dismounting didn't get him moving, the cinch had to be loosened. This would all take place in a matter of 50'. I don't know what he'd have done if I pushed the issue. BTW - standing your ground doesn't make you a b**ch. You are looking out for your own best interest. If the other gal wasn't looking after hers, those horse would be gone but she's not having to feed them. You are. Send a registered letter. Be brief, right to the point, no apologies, just after xxxxx date a board fee of $5 per head, per horse will be charged. Failure to pay in full within 30 days will result in the horses being sold at public auction.
