Hello everyone. I was hoping if someone could please help me out with my western saddle troubles. I had an older horse with extremely high withers and narrow shoulders and I could not for the life of me find a saddle that fit him. I finally found the perfect saddle for him about a year ago and then he lost a little bit of weight and made his shoulders even more narrow and now the saddle sits to far forward on his shoulders like on a slant and now the saddle is almost sitting right on his withers. I've been thinking about getting one of those pads that are built up on the withers to lift it off his shoulders and off his withers which would make sense,....something like this...
Western Saddle Pads : Cavallo Horse and Rider Simple Boot
The #809 western built up pad
But my thinking is if I do that and it works is it going to change the pressure points of the saddle and maybe hurt somewhere else? What should I do?
