I think that my saddle is hurting my horse - she was only 4 when I bought it 2 years ago and she has definitely grown since then. I have an HDR advantage synthetic all purpose, and it has a fairly deep seat. This is what it looks like just to show you the seat -
My horse has a pretty low wither and wide back for her size, and I think that my saddle may be pinching a bit. When I was tightening my girth the other day, she pinned her ears which she has never done before. She has also been more dificult to mount lately, and this year she seemed more sensitive on her back when I mounted her bareback (she used to let me run and jump, last time I tried she pinned her ears and started walking away). I also noticed that when I am jumping, it rocks forward and comes off her back. Excuse my huge butt in this picture, I just wanted to show you what it's doing
Do you think it's time for a new saddle? Or are there products or things I can do to make it fit better? Or am I just unbalanced?
