I have a few tack questions that I want to ask. I ride in an english saddle, and it fits my horse almost perfectly. The only thing is that it is a little wide in the withers, and it sits very low on his back. When I ride, it seems like it tightens around his withers a bit and makes the saddle pad press against his back. I have heard of two things that can help this.
1. A contour (shaped) saddle pad
2. A sheepskin half pad.
Would those help at all?
Also, would the contour saddle pad reduce sweating?
Is it better to ride with a square or contour pad?
Is fleece better than quilted, or vice versa?
Thanks for your time!
