Hello, I have a young 4yr qh with a weak topline, me/high withers and a short back. I think this because of the dips behind his withers and white hairs that have developed over the last 3 or 4 months.
I do have a saddlefitter coming to my barn next week and have been struggling with this saddle issue for long enough. In the meantime I would like to know brands and models of saddles and pads that work for you that have the same problems with saddle fit that I do. I am guessing a good saddle pad like a SMX or similiar that have extra cushioning in the pocket behind the withhers will help. The saddle that caused the problem was a semi qh bars and so I have been riding using a bareback pad for the last couple months. When I ride with others, I use a full qh bars with a built up pad.
Just want to know if I am on the rght track and thanks again for any help!
