    If a saddle is sitting down too low in the front, doesn't that usually mean that the tree is too wide for the horse? I've been having this problem with Kubie with his full QHB saddle, so I switched him to a semi QHB and it fits him a lot better.

    That usually means that yes. This saddle, as the maker states, is intentionally made with a low pommel

    The pommel is low ON THE HORSE and the back is POPPED UP. Both of those mean that the saddle is not balanced on your horse and does not fit properly.

    Do whatever you want...

    Hey, I was just making sure. My horse has a hunter's bump, a downhill back, and the pommel is built low. I am just brainstorming here.

    The lower pommel design may not be good for your particular horse. It doesn't matter how it's designed if it won't work well in the long run.

    I can try a riser but he is great in it. His overall attitude is great. He even JUMPED in it! He NEVER jumps! My trainer said that it fits him well even. She knows the brand. She has one of her own.

    You said that about the last saddle as well. You shift between being accepting of the advice offered to trying to justify why what you have is just fine. I am not near as experienced as most that have commented on your saddle fit but I can CLEARLY see the saddle does not fit properly. I can tell you, as a larger girl myself, proper saddle fit is a MUST for proper weight distribution. Your boy may be great in your eyes with this current saddle/fit but you also said the same thing with the last one. With the saddle that low in the front, you are going to give him saddle sores. Yes, the saddle may have a low pommel, but the back should NOT pop up as it is if it were fit properly.

    I'm not trying to be snarky, just please stop trying to justify how much your horse loves a clearly ill fitting saddle. You're hurting nobody but him in the long run.
