Pressure points?

How do I tell if my saddle is pinching my horses? I have a mare who flinches when I set the saddle on her back, like it hurts her. Thank you for reading!

Post pictures here.

But if she is doing this, then something is wrong, saddle fit is first thing you should be looking at.

Could also be she has ribs sprung, broken withers process, cracked or broken rib too. Could be your saddle has nail in it, screw, piece of wood, or broken tree.

Post pictures like the ones in this thread: saddle fit critique *pic heavy*

No pad and both cinched and uncinched. Someone will be able to tell you if there is a problem with the fit
