Question Beginning to get sores on middle of back?

Hey ya'll, so I have been riding my appy mare alot lately, recently we went on a long beach ride and when I unsaddled I noticed two round hairless spots on the middle of her back near her spine (nickle size) , one on each side. They are just hairless right now but I am guessing this is the beginning of sores. I have checked my saddle, and it all seems to pass the tests, I have been using it the whole month I have had her, the only change is I ussually use a the wintec stanard comfot pad and I didnt that day, what could be causing this? Also she has bald spot where her caveson sits, however I don't even have it tight, she just constantly opening her mouth which we are working on.

I would imagine it would be the saddle pad. If she didn't get the sores from the other pad you were using, it is probably just the new pad didn't fit her very well or the matieral was just too rough or rubbed.

However, another possibility may be a reaction. Has she had any new fly spray, shampoo, etc? My barrel mare had a reaction to her flyspray when I first started riding her and I thought it was saddle sores so I bought a **** expensive, brand-new comfort pad....Only to find out it was the flyspray. *mutters*
