Before I found the treeless saddle -that she wore in the vid - I was riding her bareback...and I know that she was much more comfy and her ears were UP. :) I guess I was thinking that treeless would be more 'humane' but not if it's puttin me in a bad position and I'm banging on her back all the time. Lol
I love Kijiji ...someone will grab it up ;)
Thank you for the advice and I'll be working more on my non stirrup work at a slower pace and shopping for a new saddle -that fits her right .
Well you guys are beautiful together :) And you will get there. I don't have much experience with saddle fitting (I don't even have my own saddle or horse yet! :P) But I know there is a tack shop here that has TONS of used saddles and you can buy one on "trial" and just try it out for a week to see if it works for you and your horse. If it doesnt, you return it no problem and try a different one. Maybe theres a tack shop around you that has that option? And yes! Kijiji is very helpful in that sense haha.
I was watching those videos from that thread someone posted... About saddle fit. They are very informative!
