    So I had the chiro out to Sary a couple days ago and he said he was a little sensitive where the back of the saddle sits, I think he has put more muscle on his back,

    So do I need to get a new saddle or can a riser help this?
    it's my work saddle and it dosn't have an easychange gullet so I think i'd have to buy a new saddle. I've never used a riser before and don't know that much about them any info would be appreciated

    A saddle pad might help,but you need to be careful that the pad doesnt make the saddle rise to high at the front puts more presure on the back and also the other way you know anyone who has a saddle pad? Ask then if you can borrow it.
    How thick is your saddle blanket?

    Well my saddle blanket is medium thickness, not super thick,

    I could ask around about borrowing a riser, I have used a gel pad on but I think this might be making the saddle sit tighter across his back? I'm not sure?

    Anyone else got any ideas?
