While I'm not big at all on saddle pad corrections, do you think a saddle pad built up in the front might help? <-I would just worry about pinching. Or some kind of orthopedic pad? This saddle was $286.27 leaving me plenty of extra money to buy a really nice saddle pad. Because as you can see the one's I have now aren't anything special and probably don't do my horses any favors. Just saying, I want to find a saddle that fits her PERFECTLY though. Or as close as I can get, I don't care if it is $500 (my maxx). Just asking about the pad. This is my 5th saddle so far, so I don't have any problems with taking it back and continuing my search.
Another idea, do you think if the rigging was back it'd be better? It seems if it was back just a little bit further it wouldn't pull the front down.
(I forgot to take a picture of her wither clearance with the saddle cinched! It was getting dark! She still had a lot of clearance though 2 1/2 - 3 fingers. I will take some tomorrow because I have it all weekend!)
The pictures of it sitting on the trunk, the truck is completely level. (excuse my muddy boots) haha
**Note** The picture you see with my 4 fingers under the back of the saddle is when her head is down in grazing position. Would a well fitted saddle do that?
