    [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.

    Look at the large white patches on Trooper's side. There is a matching one on the other side. It came from spurring the hell out of him. There is a reason he was terrified of cowboy hats and lariats until he had some remedial training. He still has some bare, lumpy flesh in those spots as scars, 4 years later.

    That wasn't ignorance. That was cruelty.

    That is absolutely astonishing. I have seen some people who are hard on horses, usually beating them with sticks and so on, but never seen a horse spurred like that. I hope you had an opportunity to do the same back to the person who did it.

    ^^ Never met the guy. He was returned like that to his original owner at the end of the summer...who was PISSED! Trooper got his name because of the slang expression "a little trooper", meaning someone who doesn't complain and just does what he is asked. The original owner was a former college roommate of mine, and he offered to cancel the sale to us (which we had arranged for earlier in the summer), but we took Trooper anyways. He is now an excellent horse, easily the best of our 3. He takes care of my youngest daughter, who refuses to ride any other horse.

    But I think there is a special place in hell for people who harm animals that way...

    While what happened to this horse is heart breaking. That is not the ignorance tinyliny is talking about. We are talking about ignorance to the proper guide to saddle fitting.
