Saddle Coming Forward!

When I jump my saddle comes too far forward and I have to get off and put it back, when i've got off I can lift the whole back of the saddle right off his back! My horse has pretty high withers and the saddle came with him. I am jumping higher now though.

Do you think it doesn't fit him or he just needs a crupper?

It does sound like an illfitting saddle. A crupper may keep the saddle in place but it is a wrong solution. A crupper, in this case, will put undo stress on your horse's tail

Yeah, it sounds like it doesn't fit him, maybe use a crupper? I'm not sure if that's a good idea either because of its tail.
Hmm, maybe get a new saddle?

Yeah, maybe i'll have to get a new saddle. Eep. So expensive.

The saddle is really short lengthwise, does that make any difference?

No, the length is influenced by the size seat(for human).. You want to be concerned with the underside for the horse. Tree size, gullet width, etc.

But do get one the correct size for you. ;)

I know saddles are exspensive but is there any way that you can trade in your old one for another one and if you have to make payments on the new saddle if there any, better to have a happy horses then a ill fitting saddle

I don't think i'll be able to trade my saddle, god knows how old it is!

I really don't want him to be uncomfortable though, and I know he would hate a crupper. He doesn't even like tail bandages.

Oof, well new saddle then I guess ...

Well is it in good shape?
'Cause old saddles aren't bad at all!
Most saddles last lifetimes, anyway. :) Especially leather ones.
But yeah, I think getting a new saddle (a good-fitting one) is the way to go!

Well not really ... . It's synthetic and really comfy but the fabric on the seat has holes in it and with the webbing girth straps the holes take ages to find and the stitching's rubbish and it's a bit of a mess really. It's all safe just really manky.

I'm quite excited now, new saddle
!
