I noticed dry spots on his withers and a bump on his spine after I rode him like the third or fourth time. Since then I have been riding bareback as much as I possibly can. I only ride him in his saddle maybe once a month though his owner rides him in the saddle at least twice a week.
Is there anything I can do to help make the saddle fit better without buying a new one? I apologize for the shoddy picture quality - they are all from my phone.
I feel like there is tightness in the withers even without the pad. (side note, I DID NOT tack the horse of in the picture with the saddle pad. That was his owner...)
Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
