Sorry about the title, I couldn't think of any better way to describe this My problem with my saddle pad is, when I ride it always ends up really tight over the withers. I suppose it is probably due to poor saddle fit? (I never ride long/hard because of this fear) My saddle pad is a wool felt, it is contoured, and it has the cutout to go over the wither area. Before I cinch up, I pull the pad up into the gullet. But then as I ride, the pad weasels it way down and gets tight over the withers.
I'm just wondering if anyone knows if this is something caused by incorrect saddle fit or placement or . . . Something else? I wondering my maybe I cut my saddle pad in the front if that would help, then my pad would fit more like a real "cut out" saddle pad, it would be fully split in the front instead of having just that cut out oval area (hope I am making sense there there ).
