Hi, I just bought a 4 yr old quarterhorse gelding. He has a very short back and withers seem not too high or low. I am curious to what brand and model saddles you all use that fit your qh. The 3 that I have tried seems to dig into his shoulders behind the withers. Very little room between withers and pommel of saddle.
I was told by a couple people at my boarding stable to just use a built up pad, but I really want to find a saddle that "fits" him well with no special pads. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be. I tried the saddle from my privious Arab on him which is narrower an it was the worst fitting of the 3.
The guy I bought him from uses a simco saddle and says it fit him and all his other quarter horses. Thanks in advance!
