Aussi saddle fit and placement.
HAve some pics here, This is a trailmaster which I bought for my appaloosa, It is advertised as best for wide flat backs but I think it fits my walker fairly well now that he has put on some weight. He isnt one of these super narrow shouldered walkers. He has about 100 miles under this saddle and I haven seen any rubbed hair, but he's kinda a butt head and I cant tell when he puts his ears back if he is just listening, Is actually pinning them, is tired, lazy, or there is something wrong. I got a new tucker coolback pad and after about 8 milers yesterday the sweat was arounf the perrimeter but the spine was dry. It was pretty cold and windy though and we didnt ride hard.
I am thinking the pics with the pad the saddle needs to come forward.
When you sit in the saddle, can you fit a couple of fingers under the arch of the fork (where the horse is)?
I think you are talking under the saddle horn ? I'll check. I rode him pretty good yesterday and he got extremely hyper and worked into a fit. So was foaming everywhere. Got real good sweat lines. Shoulda taken a picture. The sweat was exactly the same shape as the saddle pad all the way around, He had two less sweaty but not really dry spots about the size of a silver dollar on each wither. I am thinking this are may be a little sunken in. Probably need some pics.
Looking at the pictures, I'd guess it could go about 2" forward, but it is hard to tell.
I've used this wither pad with my Aussie saddle on the more narrow horse:
Fleece Western Wider Wither Pad - Statelinetack.com
Worked OK, although it was $6.99 when I bought it. It raises the front some, and also gives the shoulder a little room to slide under the front edge of the saddle an inch or so.
