Please recommend saddle pad/saddle for this horse (high withers)
For those that have horses with high withers, please recommend what you use. Ideally, I would love to have a saddle custom made, but that's probably not going to happen in the near future. However, I want to make him as comfortable as possible within my means. Could somebody please recommend what pad/saddle combo works best with their similar horse?
Links and/or specific brand and model names would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help in advance.
Here is a picture of my boy and what I'm dealing with. Yes, I know he could stand to gain some weight and muscle. I am working on that. I just got him 4 days ago.
I second the Thorogood. If you don't like synthetic, they also make a 1/2 leather/faux leather version called the T8. It looks like all leather, but only the seat and flaps are real. Can't tell the difference.
