Understanding how a saddle fits?
Soon after buying my new big boy, I realized I had no idea how to measure saddles, how they should fit, or how saddle fit affects the horses movement.
A friend gave me an old leather saddle that fits my bum just fine and is pretty comfy, but looks SO silly on my new horse, as he is 16 and a half hands and almost 1200lbs. He is huge and the saddle is tiny. Looks like a pony saddle on him, and there is no way it can be comfortable for him.
So here we are on a saddle hunt... Budget is important, because I dont have all the money in the world. It doesnt need to be a show saddle, just a comfy trail/working saddle.
How do I find a saddle that fits my little butt and his huge butt. Is that even possible?
Where do I even begin?
