Today I noticed that my gelding has some roaning areas where my saddle sits and concerned I took note where they were and rode with my usual saddle and pad.
After when I removed my tack I confirmed that the white hairs are from my daily riding in my saddle that aparently is creating pressure points enough to damage the hair pigment. He is a 16 hand QH gelding, I have a full QH bar crates saddle which from my experience is a pretty wide saddle so im really surprised im having this issue! I use a basic wool pad (not a double thickness). So im just looking to you all to find out what my options are.
I can't buy another saddle right now and even if I did I think in the end it would have to be custom anyway. I know pads are not the best solution but I want to at least make him more comfortable until I can.
So does anyone have a pad the recommend?
Here are some pictures of where the pressure points are. Thanks for your help.
