Saddle causing the problem?
I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section I just couldn't decide where to put this topic.
Basically to make a long story short my saddle was rubbing my horse's withers and giving her terrible saddle sores. The saddle fitter tightened the tree(? Sorry the name escapes me) as much as he could. My horse is now lame. I was told that it could possibly be the saddle that is causing the problem. This is believed because the problem lies in her shoulder and the vet said it was a contusion. There is no swelling or anything else.
So my question is....Could the saddle be pinching her shoulder or something to that extent that could be causing her to be lame?
Thanks for any replies!
