    I have a concern about synthetic saddles though ... a lot of people say that they are not that great for your horse because they do not change shape like a leather saddle does or something like that, and I was wondering if that is true? I love synthetic because they are so easy to take care of and I don't do hardly any showing, but if a leather saddle is better for my horse I would gladly stop being lazy and take the time to keep a leather saddle.

    Check out ebay - you can always change the gullet when you get it to whatever size your horse needs!

    Well I tried some saddles on Willow this weekend, and took some pictures. My pictures suck so I'm not going to bother posting them, but I pretty much confirmed that it is pinching her. I tried a few other on, but all the saddles at my barn are too narrow. I guess I'm going to be riding bareback for a while!
