    Western saddle for help

    Hey y'all. I recently purchased a western saddle for my quarter horse and it seemed to fit rather well except when I cinched it down the back of the saddle popped up. It fits fine in the withers(or so I think) and it doesn't seem to pop up once there is some weight in the saddle, what could be causing this and is it bad?

    It is really really difficult to help with being able to see the saddle and how it pops up.

    It COULD be really bad, it could just be that it needs to be moved back, probably, or forward, maybe, to that sweet spot where it sits just right.

    It also depends on how it's rigged. A western saddle with a rigging in the full position (directly under the swells), even if it fits like a glove, will tend toward popping up in the back because all the pressure from the front cinch is on the very front end of the bars.

    Can you get some good pictures to share with us, both cinched and non-cinched, with and without a saddle pad?

    I'll post some pictures when I'm at home. I can't figure out how to post them from my phone. It is cinched in the full position and I thought I positioned it right (concho is right behind shoulder bone) at least that's what I was taught all these years.

    Either it's a little wide in the front or your horse's ribs are a little wider than the bars.
