Ok so I bought a new horse, was riding him the other day and when I got off I noticed a couple spots under the cinch that were swollen and raw, I looked it up online and the spots are called gall, I bought some stuff called blue lotion which is an ointment that says its good for saddle sores, cinch gall, and other minor scrapes and abrasions. Anybody ever used this stuff before? What would you guys suggest? How would I keep this from happening again? I read online that it could be caused from an ill fitting cinch which I believe this one is a little big for him, what is a good cinch to buy? The one I have is kind of like some kind of compressed wool or dense felt material I'm not sure exactly but it worked fine with my other horse I don't know why its bothering this guy, any suggestions?
