The western is not causing her pain. I don't need the lifting pad on the english, it was just to see how it worked (was not going to argue as I was buying the saddle from her for a steal, if she wanted me to do a hand stand I would have lol). And I don't have money to run around trying to find the elusive perfect saddle. She is fine with this one, she has had her back looked at numerous times and she is not sore. And again I DON'T NORMALLY RIDE LIKE THAT! Sorry but I have stated this, I have ridden braced 2 times and the vid being one of them. And she acts no different regardless what saddle im in (except for being more of a nut under english) and how I ride her, or who rides her. My friend who rides hunter jumpers, refuses to stop, my friend who rides cow horses, same thing, my bf who is a little big for her still wont stop. She is consistent in her lack of wanting to stop. She acts the same even if I'm bareback. I had a saddle that WAS causing her pain and she still did not act up out of the ordinary (don't use that saddle anymore). I don't think it is saddle related.
This was taken a while ago on the saddle that was giving her white spots (again don't use it anymore)
I am aware of the bouncing, found she did not like it and it made her stop.
