Saddle fit #2

Ah I thought it was going to be a good fit till I got on, it was just too tight around the shoulders and when I sat it almost touched his withers...

Now we tried the Wintec 500 on him and it was the best fit! WTH?? I have a 250 and it doesnt fit there really a difference? Its my friends sons saddle so its too small maybe I'll just look for a 500.

Either way I need saddle with panels that look like this Bates because theey sit on him really good in the back (I think)

The back panels are not flat enough for him

^ Yes, you need to be able to fit at least four fingers width in the channel so the saddle does not sit on the spinal processes causing pain and back damage and of course an unhappy horse. My new gen. wintec can fit a whole hand's width in the middle of the channel towards the back

Try a new gen, wintec. They have flatter panels and they are bigger for better weight distribution.
