    Whoo ok!
    Fitted the saddles this morning, you guys where right! :)
    I have semi-quarter horse bars, but he's grown the the point where he needs full Q bars. I'm selling my saddles now (both the western and english) and I'm going to get ones that fit. When I fitted them this morning (I read online about fit and watched some videos) I saw that the saddles put quite a bit of pressure on exactly the spot where it was turning white! I'm so glad I caught this when I did, and asked about it! I had no idea what it was from, but now it won't cause problems down the road and I've learned something to look out for in the future. :)
    Guess I'll be riding bareback for a while! :p
    Thank you all for your help!!

    P.S. Anyone want some saddles? :~)

    You're welcome. Good on you for asking before it became a problem and you end up with a very crabby horse. Luckily, they're still pretty unnoticeable. I don't find solid white pinch spots rather unattractive, mostly due to how they got there and how easily it is prevented.

    Ride your horse again get him sweated up then pull the saddle. See if the areas where the white spots are showing up are dry ??

    That looks like a bad saddle fit.

    My own mare has spots on both sides of her withers, worse than that, from an ill saddle fit from me using a synthetic saddle on her during her pregnancy. The saddle stretched out and gave her nerve damage, thus the white hairs.

    I'd check your saddle-fit, just to be on the safe side.

    Ride him with the saddle again until he sweats a good bit. Then check those spots; most likely, they will be dry, meaning a lack of blood flow like I already said.
