I just bought my mare and couldn't be more pleased with her! She is an absolute doll. The only problem is her withers
They are unusually high. I have an English all purpose and jumping saddle but both, just layed across her back look like they wouldn't fit. (I haven't tightened the girth because I don't want to make her uncomfortable by not putting it in the right place) I'm not sure if I'm just sitting the saddle to high up or if it's just not going to fit at all. I'm an experianced western rider but turned in my cowboy boots for a new style I know nothing about, lol! If I put the saddle so it sits behind her withers and I were to wrap the girth around it looks like the girth would be about 2 or 3 inches from behind her front legs. I personally would think this is too far back :-/ When I got these saddles they were both used for a TB so I assumed they would fit, but I never saw them on their horse. The tree is very small but it does not have a cut back pomel. Someone please help me
I'll post a picture if it will help... Thank you so much!
