    Saddle Ideas??? Please!!

    I bought my horse a little over a year ago. She's a complete cow bred Quarter horse in every sense of the word. She hadn't been ridden much in a saddle before I got and was trained really badly. The woman who had been riding/training her was teaching her to buck, rear up, and to run away with people. All of this was taught to her in a western saddle. So when I bought her we fought daily until I switched from a western saddle to an english.

    At the time I was still trying to ride her western I kept noticing hot spots after I was riding her which probably didn't help her liking the saddle at all. I've started noticing the same issue with her english saddle now. I know that she has extremely wide shoulders, but I have tried a few different saddles with different widths and none seem to work. So I really need so ideas.

    Tex tan saddles and buffalo saddles are usually wider. Buffalos tend to run a little flatter over the withers though. What do you ride her in now? FQHB or SQHB?

    Flex tree saddle (say Abetta) may work for her.
