Pony gal, actually, I did buy a saddle last year. I did templates of his back and got a Big Horn synthetic saddle, that should have fit great. BUT, I didn't buy it till months after I did the templates. Dumb. So, if he loses weight back down to where he was when I did the templates, the saddle should fit.
The problem is, it's very hard to get that weight off, and now I'm thinking I need to look for a wider saddle. In the end, maybe it would be better to see if he loses enough weight that THIS saddle will fit. I'm just getting a bit impatient, I think. With the weather here being SO nice so early.
