    saddle fit

    I recently checked the fit on my geldings saddle and found it was too small for him. I've bought him a new saddle that fits him but his back is very tender. I know that this is from the ill-fitting saddle but am not sure what I should do about it. Somebody suggested a back massage and I have also been told that it is best to let the back rest and heal by itself.

    Obviously, I have stopped riding him atm and any advice would be appreciated! Thanks

    We've always just let the horse rest a while. I figure its like wearing shoes that are too small. After a day or two you start feeling better. :)

    When did he sore back start? You sure that its what caused it?

    I would give him a few days off and make sure that when you go back, you use plenty of paddind.

    Cheers
