Um, what?

If the one saddle hurts his back, then it doesn't fit him properly. As far as the rest of your post, I have no idea what you're trying to say.

Translation please? Sorry, but sentences with periods and capitals are your friend. I read this three times and still don't understand.

As I mentioned on your other thread, the more info you can give the better.

If your saddle is hurting your horses back, then it really doesn't fit.

If your horse already has a sore back, you need a vet or chiro to look at the horse. Then find a different saddler to correctly fit a saddle.

ETA: Please don't ask for advice, then expect us to wave a wand and make your aussie saddle fit. If an english saddle fits your horse, you may have to just use an English saddle.

If he isn't your first horse, you shouldn't believe others when they tell you what you need for your horse without realizing first that it does not fit. You need to be aware of what is going on his back. If it makes him sore, it quite clearly does not fit.

You don't have to switch to English to get a saddle that fits him. Australian saddles come in all different sizes, so a fitter should easily be able to find you an Aussie saddle that fits both you and your horse.

If you swear that the saddle fits, then your horse desperately needs to see a chiro.

Yep I can't really understand what you were typing but from what I got out of the post, get a saddle fitter and a chiro.

OP, please slow down and write your posts with care so that they are more readable. Reread it yourself before you hit the "post" button.
