Hey, so I'd really like to do team penning and cattle work, however I have had saddle fitters out and horse chiropractors and the saddle fitter said my horse has a very short back(which I already knew) and that finding a saddle that would not be to long or pinch somewhere would be hard seeing I needed a 15" seat, and that most skirts would rub somewhere uncomfortable. And the chiropractor looked at my horses back and said she has permanent damage that we can lessen that was from a bad fitting saddle from her previous owner that was to long(which all westerns seem to be on my horse)
I've been riding english all my life, and english saddles are short enough and don't sit past her last rib which is what the westerns do. I tried team penning on a friends horse and I really enjoy it, so my question is would I be able to do cattle work with an Aussie saddle?
Oh also my horse has a wide flat back to Aussie saddles fit wide horses?
P.S I meant 2 ses not 2 ies for aussie in my title...plus if this is in the wrong spot please tell me.
