Sorry about so many threads lately! :S but I've had my western barrel saddle for about 2 years now. It has regular QH bars. Now my gelding I just got 3 weeks ago and he was (still is) on the skinner side. You can't see his ribs but he has no muscle mass what-so-ever. My saddle pad is kinda small for my saddle so I'm looking at getting a better more expensive one in the near future anyway.
Ok, so my question is, Is that his wither kinda hits the saddle when I'm riding. (it's not completely hitting and rubbing but it's just touching his wither) now would a better pad and more muscle and weight fix this? Bc he is pretty slender around the shoulder right now so I feel like the saddle has nothin to really rest on but I might be completely wrong. He doesn't seem to care when I ride him in that saddle and it doesn't seem to bother him in anyway but opinions are helpful.
