horse with wide back
I am riding a mare who is REALLY not liking my saddle...

It is an adjustable tree for my appendix mare...

i am training the paint and she has a WIDE back...i was trying to be smart and put a thick wither pad on her...

dumb idea after i thought about it = putting a thicker sock on when your shoe is to small.

so then i rode her in the dressage saddle...what could i do to make her more comfortable in my saddle because i do not ride dressage and do not want to show her to people in the dressage saddle since she is being trained hunter...

any ideas would be great!

You're going to need to find another saddle to borrow for her, one that has a wide enough tree to fit her.

How does your current saddle adjust? Is there any way to adjust it wider for her?

Is there any saddle that you could borrow since you just need one to show her off in since she is being trained as a hunter and not a dressage prospect?
