    Critique my tack ;)

    From my previous threads I was critiqued alot so I thought I would just saddle him up and give me your honest opinion. I feel like Im not doing it right anymore. I have been out of horses for a few years and gettin back into it.

    Some said my gullet was too big
    Cinch to far forward

    Or does it look ok?
    Im not sure about my breast collar.. I feel it looks weird and maybe too low? What do you think?

    Its so frustrating trying to find the right stuff for him. I am looking for a flank billet and back strap of a similar color if you know anyone who is selling any. Thanks!!!

    Breast collar does look too low and the strap that attaches to the cinch needs to be tighter its dangling far too low. You could lift your breast collar up some by punching another hole or double wrapping the strap. Personally I loove a deep seat :) but that's just me Hahaha.

    Lift the front of the b,collar until it is almost at the V in the neck. I'd add another strap on each side and run it to the cinch ring on the saddle. It looks like you are using the flared roper cinch. Could be the pic. If you are switch to a straight one as it's more comfortable for the horse. It looka like the keeper is interfering with his elbow.

    The front of the saddle is slightly misaligned. The back is straight but the front isn't even. Make sure when you're completely cinched up that the saddle is even!!

    When you are fully tight, the center D ring in your cinch would be in the middle of the horse's legs.. atm it's too far to the horse's right. Was he fully tightened when you took this pic or was the cinch loose?

    Also the breast collar needs to get adjusted shorter so the middle is in the center of the horse's chest BUT not so tight that it cuts into their body when they put their heads down. But atm it seems loose.

    Before you cinch up, pull the top of the pad up so it's not sitting on the withers.

    Otherwise pretty good :)
