In my last post I brought up the unusual pressure the pads exerted, thanks for noticing!

Only trying to help here, as you've probably done this, but have you tried using a pad or something under your saddle when he's going through his 'light' phases? Gel pads are usually very good.

In my defence of my saddle fitting my girl, believe me she's telling me that her saddle doesn't fit! As soon as I have a horse who isn't working quite right I go through the whole process, chiro-saddle-teeth, so your 'stab' hurt

Frog- I was just pointing out the obvious, no stabbing dont take it to heart!
We all do the best for our horses! I was just a bit annoyed with your "you cant expect a young horse to stay the same shape" comment. Hence.... being a bit blunt with you! Im not dumb (dont take that the wrong way either) and know full well they change, my boy more than most. I am just desperately thinking about whats best for my weird boy and wanted others views on the cair system. I had heard that they have damaged horses backs and wanted to see wether this was a BIG and well known probem?!

I hope you can see where we crossed wires and dont hold it against me.

Yes I have tried lots of pads, gel, sheepskin, etc etc and all i find is they slip about and drive me MAD! hehe I just want a saddle on simple saddle cloth to work....sigh

All good, no harm done! Infact apologies, as my comment of 'you cant expect a young horse to stay the same shape' was a general "you" not directed, so yes, wires were crossed

I'd figured you'd tried pads, another thought, and this might be pricy, but could you purchase another saddle for his light stage and one when he's fuller?

Anyway all the best in your search

I was actually thinking about that Frog......hmmm what to do! hehe

Im temped to get the CAIR saddle and try it.......its on ebay so going much much cheaper than from a shop and if it really doesnt sit right and im not happy with it i can stick it back on ebay or ask the seller for the email addresses of the others who bidded and shift it that way?

Just cant help thinking that it may be a temp problem solver until he turns into a propa horse! lol

Thanks for all the help!
