thank you Andrew for your input and THANKS Taffy for posting photos for me.
Hubby and I went to the barn and took photos and felt under the saddle. I think the photos will speak for themselves. I placed the saddle in the "sweet" spot with the tree (by feeling underneath) slightly behind her shoulder, that is when the girth is so far back.
I have since written a letter to Henry Miller, he is Amish so has no phone or internet. I have included the photos posted above and pretty much wrote to him what I wrote above. Hopefully he can help me. I was very disappointed when I called the Double Creek saddles and spoke with the owner. She was very vague and told me she thought the saddle was suppose to slide/go over the shoulder. Has anyone ever heard of this???? She then tried to get me to buy one of her custom made saddles. I was not a happy camper to say the least!!!!
I need to find a good saddle fitter, I am in North Georga, can anyone tell me who/how to find one? What can I expect from a saddle fitter?????
Please post comments on my saddle and possible solutions, I really love the saddle from MY BUTTS perspective, but it also has to be a good fit for my horse.
