It's one of those things that I'd rather be safe than sorry. I'd rather not push it aside now that I know about it and find out another 10 years down the road. She has had many saddles fitted by many different people, pads, the works for that and the cinching quickly was never something that I caused. In the beginning I didn't have the strength to tighten very quickly so if that is the case, which I hope it is, it was either the Trainer or someone else and I'll be ecstatic and happy because the dancing around is a unique quirk I can live with and have lived with. XD Thank you for the advice. I hope to god for her sake it is just her being stubborn and habitual.
