    Saddle fit poll

    Here we go, I dragged all my saddles out and tried them on Ace this morning, I thought I'd set up a poll to vote on what you think works bst. As ever explaining why you voted as you did is even more helpful than just voting

    Just a reminder, Ace is 18 years old, and she has been a brood mare for the last 12 years. She is now 5 weeks into a fittening program, and is putting on weight and her top line is improving, but as you see she has a way to go.



    This is what I have available, and I would rather use one of these for now, once she is fitter then would be the time to set out and find a perfect saddle for her.

    Actually all of them look pretty low, but # C is just sitting right on top of the withers.

    Id say b or d. But its really hard to tell without it tightened or with out a pad. But the other 2 sit way to low in the front. B and D have a little bit of clearance atleast.

    D is too long for the horse's back.

    I personally would like the fit of A best if putting a pad on her got it up off her withers a little farther.

    You need to put on a blanket and sit in it. They can look good until you get weight in them.

    My opinion with withers like that would be a Steele saddle

    I would pick B, because it looks balanced and isnt kicked up on the horses withers either... and the back of A is lifting off a bit...

    Agh - I'm terrible with polls and voted for C instead of B!
    Consider one vote for C as a vote for B.

    I think B looks best...definitely not C...will kill her withers. Hard to tell just looking at pictures...but that seems the best choice out of what you already have.
