Do you like this saddle for Ben
I think it looks not to bad, better than the saddle that I would prefer to ride him in, but if this does him better, then I suppose we'll have to go with it.

And just because, here he is with his mane braided:wink:

in the 2nd to last pic it looks like it mgiht be sitting on his spine too closely... otherwise it would be a great fit

ETA: Love the braided mane!

LOL, I just wanted to see what he looked like, so it's just a quick job, but I think he will be alright in a :oops:whatever you call a braid like that my mind wont give it to me just at the moment:oops: I really don't want to pull his mane yet,if at all.

*running braid :) Do you have pics of the other saddle? I really like the overall fit of the one above, but i think whre it slopes back it will be uncomfortably pushing on his spine

Its quite funny. He's so big he makes it look like a breyers plastic saddle sitting on a real horse. He trumps it.

It looks like the girth should be moved back a bit away from his front legs, it shouldn't be at an angle (maybe the saddle could also be moved back a touch too).

It looks like a decent fit to me. What saddle is that (Stubben I'm guessing)? (just curious). The girth looks too forward. If his girth curve (whatever that part is called :) ) is closer to the front legs you may consider getting a shaped girth.

LOL, this is my only good saddle that isn't a Stubben, this is a Michael Stokes Centaur A really nice saddle, but not the best fit on any of the big guys :-x

Running Braid *face palm* that's it, I think I have pics of the other one, I'll put them up if I have.

I agree about the girth, doesn't look right there does it.

Golden Horse 01-11-2012 02:41 PM

I do have the other pics

kitten_Val 01-11-2012 02:41 PM

Oh, yes, I remember that saddle. You bought it a year or so back, right? I remember you looked for info on it.

Golden Horse 01-11-2012 02:53 PM

That's one of the saddles I acquired last year :oops::wink:

That one is a Wintec 2000 it didn't come with the gullets, but they can be changed, so maybe I need to invest in the kit and see if one of the other gullets works better maybe.

I also bought a Wintec Wide, which is the only saddle that has ever fitted Destiny, and the Thorowgood Maxam, which was a steal of a deal, but wasn't a great fit on anyone, I think I'll get it back off of loan and see if I can get a fitter out from somewhere
