So I'll be buying my mare her own saddle and I have a trainer to help with correct fit. I'm really excited. We are going to do both show ring trail classes and cowboy races and anything trail related we can enter in lol I also work with cattle and like to do camping trips with our horses. We don't ride far and hard but an 8hr ride is not uncommon for me either.
My mare has issues with saddles as it is. In the past she was beat with different objects because she would not stand still for saddling. I have that nipped in the bud and can saddle her just fine now but she gives me that nasty mare face lol she obviously doesnt like it but lets me do it. I think partially its because she needs a better fitting saddle and the other part of it is her past. My trainer doesnt think she will ever 100% be ok with a saddle. I have to keep the cinch loose on her, so a good fitting saddle is a must.
So obviously my goal is her comfort on the trails and also my own comfort as well.
So my question is: what do you guys recommend?
