    saddle question???

    So I got this new saddle today:
    I do barrel racing but I didn't really want to get a round skirt becuase I want to get into reining, so I got a square skirt instead. It's a 16 inch.. Really pretty. The back is just a little long. Can this affect the way my horse runs and turns? He seemed fine whenever I worked him today, but I was just wondering if a square skirt will slow him down? I need to know soon because I have a show this weekend and I would like to use it. If not I have my old 14 inch that my butt can barely squeeze in

    As long as the saddle fits so the front concho is sitting behind the back edge of the shoulder blade and the rear skirts are in front of the horse's flank, then you should be fine. If the front is over the shoulder and/or the back is over the flank, then it can definitely effect your horse's comfort and athletic ability.
