see the weird part about it was that the saddle appeared to fit really well when it was on him bareback...when my trainer was looking at it to see if it fit. The saddle pad is really thick, so I don't know if that has gotten anything to do with it.
I've also heard that it could either be a pressure point or the air is circulating in there making it not sweat.
The part on him was warm to the touch, but not as warm as the other parts (if I recall correctly)
I've already ridden in that saddle a good 6 hours...the longest time for about 3 hours I believe and he wasn't sore afterwards...
I'm going to take pictures of the saddle bareback this time (which I should have done before I bought the saddle), and then have my trainer look at it again...then I'll put a thin felt blanket or an Indian Blanket instead of the thick saddle pad and see how the sweat patterns are then.
If at all possible I'd like to keep the saddle...but I will sell it if it definitely does not fit, and is causing Sonny discomfort
