    Sweat Marks?

    Hello, I believe I posted a saddle fit critique for this saddle before. I think that it fits fine, it's not pinching anywhere or too loose anywhere. I'll have to see if I still have some pictures of it.
    Anyway, after our last ride, I thought these sweat marks were weird. Usually she doesn't get this sweaty, but w did a lot extra that day.
    What do these mean?

    The pictures on my phone are much more clear. It's wet everywhre the saddle was touching except for right along her spine

    These are the only two I could find, the one of us jumping isn't very good, but it seems to not move/lift much when we jump. Is that a problem?

    If I were you I would be pretty happy with those sweat marks. There shouldn't be sweat down the spine because there isn't any pressure there. The sweat marks where there is pressure look nice and even. Looks good to me :)

    Well, I don't know much about it, but it seems if the spine area was dry then the saddle was not pressing on it and that would be good. Also if the saddle stays in place when the horse is moving that also is good.

    That's what I was thinking, but I wanted to be sure. Thank you!!

    Yes that's good, at least that's what I was always told. Shows there is good air flow along the spine and no pressure points.
