    Not knowing you has nothing to do with anything in this thread except in you head. I pointed out a problem - period. It has nothing to do with you personally. You may be the nicest person on the forum, but that has nothing to do with a saddle that doesn't fit and your insistence that a 16" is the proper size.

    Foal
    Last time, I did not insist a 16" fits. I DO insist the new one fits better and it's all I have right now. I spoke to my trainer about all this and she assures me I am not harming my horse and that even though not a perfect fit it will work until I am able to get a bigger one if I want. I DID insist that the OP would do better in a bigger one. I don't understand why this is so difficult for anyone to grasp. Like you said its only what you read and apparently you don't. This has nothing to do with knowing me personally but it does have to do with me worrying my time with actual real people in my life, not online people who let the fact that they do remain anonymous allows them to be ruder than they would to someone's face. I would rather deal with actual people. I'm smart, have been through a lot in my life that could be an asset to young ones here and have a lot to offer this forum but I've been asked to have my account removed because I don't have time for this. Good luck everyone.

    WOW storm in a tea cup, if you want to move on that is your choice, mybe it's best because I think that you have read things here that were never meant, and the ride is often rougher than this.

    Good luck, I hope you stick around, but if not I hope you find what you are looking for

    I honestly thing you're way over reacting. Take a pill and a deep breathe. If you're all herky jerky about this just wait til you see an actual brawl. No need for the 'I've been through alot in my life' line cause we all have. Your outside problems have nothing to do about your post about the saddle fitting. And exactly as golden stated, if you didn't care then you wouldn't have posted back. Maybe you are just a bit too sensitive for some helpful constructive critisim. We're all just tryingto help, sorry if you can't handle it.

    I have a 13" saddle that was GIVEN to me... you won't find me riding in it! For grins and giggles we tossed it on a saddle stand and while I can put my butt inside, it certainly doesn't "fit" me. If I want to ride Western, I go next door and borrow a 14.5" saddle.

    It is absurd to think that just because you were gifted with an item that it's ok to use it.

    When I accidentally mooshed myself into my 11yr old's jeans yesterday, I didn't wear them. Due to medical problems, I am very tiny and very thin but irregardless, a girls size 10 jeans even though they did button up, do not fit me!

    Agreed, Del. I had to hop on my daughter's bratty pony the other day and could squeeze my backside into her 15" english long enough to provide a correction, but no way would I use that saddle for myself. I use a 17" english, am 5'3" and 165ish.

    The reason you shouldn't cram yourself into a too-small saddle, even if it's all you have, is because it CAN be bad for your horse. It creates pressure points on their back, from distributing the weight over a too small area, and can definitely cause damage from bruising to worse. You would be better to ride bareback than ride in a too-small saddle. That's not rude, that's fact.

    Holy over reaction.

    It doesn't matter what anyone size is, if the saddle doesn't fit - it doesn't fit. I don't think it's rude to say that at all.

    I currently own three saddles. Had 4 a month ago. I don't use any of them because they don't fit myself or Ronan properly - including the new saddle I just bought a month ago. I'm on the hunt for a new saddle that works for both of us.
