    If it helps you make the decision about trying the non-high wither model, here's my TB's back.

    Have you considered a wither pad with a traditional cut out to relieve pressure on his withers? I am currently in the same boat with my mare and am looking at purchasing one of these pads, Equine Comfort Half Pad with Wither Relief. This pad is a little expensive but I have seen similar pads for much cheaper ($50.00). Just food for thought :)

    Oh and I absolutely love your horses mane! The colouring is beautiful.

    Yeah I've tried all sorts of pads with that saddle and I've come to the conclusion it just isnt going to work for him.

    And thank you! I never used to like greys really but I think he is gorgeous :)

    Join the club! I was never partial to greys whatsoever until I fell in-love with my gelding :)

    My TB has higher withers and the only saddles he likes are a wide tree with a half pad to get it off him. Though now he's built enough topline that he doesn't need a half pad. Narrow trees, and even medium trees get the saddle off their withers now but it causes muscle atrophy by not being wide enough and pressing down into where muscle should go

    I measured him with the wintec gullet gauge and it came up medium, I bought him a Passier saddle that should be cut back enough to give him that wither clearance and hopefully it'll be a bit too wide so he'll have some room to muscle out
