My pony mare is a little bit downhil (i am not english native speaker. I mean she has her butt higher than her whithers). I have just bought a Wintec 500 VSD saddle for her. On CAIR official site, there is instruciton hat this saddle have to be fitted with the rider in, unfortunately I didnt have anyone with me. Even when I mounted, I could put all my hand under the pommel-it had a good whither clearance. I think it was quite balanced. We rode for a short trail, to try all walk, trot and canter. She wa moving very well, even though she had her mare days and she is usually very lazy in these days. She was even on the bit in trot, which she doesnt do very often, or it demands some work with her. She seemed relaxed to me. But I think the saddle rear part was lifting a little bit in posting in trot. Maybe a little bit narrower gullet would help? I measured her some time ago with the wintec measurer and she was blue-medium/wide. The gullet in the saddle is red - wide. But when I put the gullet on her back without the saddle, it was even with her whithers.
It seems to be that the center of the seat should be little bit more in the centre. (more backwards). What should I do with that?
