TY GoldenHorse. I'll be working on getting to the point where she looks that free and happy while under saddle . Patience ...and great advice from great horse people helps too .

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 .

:) Julie
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!

Good luck!

Hey every time I ride I try not to get in the way of how they move best. I fear that I fail more often than succeed.

She is a dandy.
