So, I measured Chili...
and was stunned.
From now on, I'm trusting my gut. I knew she had a wide back!!
I KNEW my friend's saddle was too small, bc Chili's trot was AWFUL in her saddle and I could barely stay seated (Chili's trot is beautifully smooth).
Her saddle measured about 6 1/4"-6 3/4".
9"-11" (depending on exactly where on her withers I put the wire and TBH, I don't know if I put it on the right spot)
I talked to the BO and looked at her saddles and just by looking at them, I saw the difference. They were WIDE WIDE WIDE whereas my friend's saddle was "regular"? So, I measured her saddle - 11". HAH! At least I'm doing something right with My Chili Girl.
So, now I'm looking for a much larger saddle than I originally thought and I have a feeling it's going to be difficult.
