    Question Fitted Saddle Blanket for Nonfitted horse?

    Okay, so my horse passed away last month. she had low withers, which meant we used a fitted saddle blanket for her. Her saddle blanket was pink, along with a black and pink saddle and looked all in all very showy, so I was going to use the same tack on the horse we may be getting soon. Can I use a fitted saddle blanket on a horse that doesn't need one?

    Not sure I quite understand your post/the issue at hand.

    Do you mean a fitted saddle pad, like this one?

    As long as it fits the saddle correctly then I don't see why it would be a problem. When they are referred to as a "fitted" pad, they are not referring to the horse, they are referred to as fitted to the saddle as opposed to am AP pad like this

    I'm no expert, but since the blanket is fitted for low withers I'd be careful using it on other horses, especially ones with higher withers. You don't want it to pinch or put pressure on the withers. If it was fitted for very high withers I'd say go ahead, but for yours it will depend on just how much higher your new horses withers are. If they are low or average it should be okay, just slide your hand in and make sure that there's not a lot of pressure when your trying it on. Good luck!
