I bought a 4yr old quarterhorse geldig. ( birthday April 6th). I am not sure if he will fill out a bit more or not.
My problem is every saddle that I use on him does not seem to fit properly. He has a short back and all the saddles seem a bit wide without a builtup pad. How important is the sweat pattern? Some saddles bridge and the last one I used he was dry just behind the withers and a little from there onto the front part of his back.
I do not have a saddle that fits him and have been using others saddles. I need to purchase one for him as I don't want to keep borrowing, at least until I find or have one made for him. Any advice would be appreciated.
Also the saddles seem to slip back on him, he looks to have good conformation (he is foundation) and looks like an easy fit. Thank you in advance! Or am I being too obsessed as I know I can be....
