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!

Sounds exactly like your saddle is the root of your problems. :(

Yes a saddle can cause lameness

A poorly fitting saddle can interfere with shoulder movement as well as causing back problems that can show up as lameness. Any saddle that fits poorly will cause pain that can show up as lameness - your horse may not be lame, just that it will not move properly if it is in pain - like having a stone in your shoe , you are not going to walk properly.

I would reccomend that you change your saddle before you get more problems as a saddle that fits poorly will cause real problems over the long term if not changed.
