    Thank you Celeste! I am needing some muscle relaxers right now though...who would have guessed I would ever come off of Chivas??

    I was just thinking the other day that he has never bucked under saddle with me; spooked - yes many times, bolted - yes but not far cause I could pull him back, but never bucking. Jeez.

    When I first started riding in my Circle Y trail saddle, I hit the dirt. I think that part of the problem was that I wasn't used to the saddle and my horse was more anxious than usual because she noticed that it was different.

    Your horse looks like he has a very wide back. He actually looks like his back is more solid than most. I wonder if the new saddles really hurt his back, or if he just noticed that they were different and therefore he was anxious. Anything new will make my horse on edge.

    You may be right about that Celeste. Horses do not like change!

    Also Drambuie has been feeling better and the two of them are fighting over the mare every night when I turn them out into the pasture. A lot of biting, kicking, running and bucking going on.

    I don't see anything that really sticks out as 'hard to fit' on the pics you showed. I would try out a cutback, those tend to fit the "foot flingers" (nicknamed from a farrier I know, no disrespect intended :) ) well and does not interfere with the shoulder.

    It may not look hard to fit, but he is! Most people here use a cutback Park style saddle for showing, but a western for trails on gaited horses. I really don't find those Park saddles to be very comfortable.

    I bo't a used endurance that was originally from National Bridle with a extra flare in the shoulder. It is leather and cordura. It was set on the horse, paddles, and he's so big behind the shoulders that it wouldn't even set down even when I pushed on it. It's for sale, in good shape.
