[QUOTE=tinyliny;1893389]unclearthur felt it hard to believe that such marks could be caused by a saddle too wide that it sat ON the witherbone, but I dont' find that hard to beleive. I have seen it, more than once.
What I got the impression was that uncleArthur thought that that scenario would be unlikely because no one could be stupid enough to do that to a horse, not that that wouldn’t cause those kinds of marks. But if you have seen them I guess there are people around who would be stupid enough; who am I kidding I think we ALL know there seems to be an abundance of stupid people around.
But all the same, I think unclearthur and bsms both make a valid point, one my saddle maker fiend, who is the guy who taught me most about riding and training horses, also made; there are not so much hard and fast rules about fitting saddles rather guidelines within which a well fitting saddle will conforms.
