Saddle pads / saddle fit - question
I've had my saddle fitted in the last month or so, which has helped my horse's back, but the problem of un-even pressure / hollowing still stands.
My horse has MASSIVE shoulders, so we have to push the saddle back a bit inorder to prevent pinched nerves & shoulder pressure. The original problem we had ( putting the saddle in the normal spot - more forward) caused hollowing behind his left shoulder, we moved the saddle back & added a gel pad. The hollowing filled out, and a recent discovery showed hollowing starting on the right side, a bit further back from the shoulders. Does anybody have any suggestions? I am thinking about getting a thicker half pad to help. Is there another material that is better than gel for pressure control?
