This pic was taken last year and it pretty much sums up my predicament .(actually now that I look at it again it looks to far forward...) As you can see it doesn't fit him properly. (he is ASHxTB and 13 yrs by the way). The saddle is a County competitor, spring tree, 16'', no 3 fit and it is the old style. (this is the new style http://www.countysaddlery.com/html/s...ompetitor.html )
I thought maybe a raised back protector pad would help.
But im worried it will put pressure on his withers. Sorry I didn't have enough time to get recent/close up pics tonight.
I also have another question that doesn't really fit into this category, but since im already here:
My sister has been 'stealing' my stock saddle in the afternoons and the only other saddle I have to ride him in is the one above. I used it this afternoon and it made his back a little sensitive. I am sick of arguing with her/ chasing her to get it back lol. So do you think I could ride in the mornings before school. (if I can drag myself out of bed lol) I looked up the temp. For this area in may and the lowest was -4.6. Lol bit cold. To cold? Obviously not EVERY day was this cold, but still....
