making seat smaller
Is there a way to make my saddle seat smaller? I love my saddle, but have lost weight and feel it is too big. I have seen something that is put on the swells, but don't know the name of it.

If its a western saddle you could always get a seat saver or a seat cushion. It takes up some room

Or put 3 pairs of thick pants... :D

If it's a western saddle I wouldn't worry much. And as corino mentioned you can get seat-saver (I use one personally).

I have used seat savers before. It seems like all they do is bring you up higher in the saddle.

Three pair of pants, come on.

Oh now, that WAS funny shuler ;-).

You can buy a "seat shrinker" or "bump pad" to take up room. Here are a few options.
Seat Shrinker
Western Luxury Seat Cushion (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Accessories - Seats Cushions)
Seat Shrinker Equibrand (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Accessories - Seats Cushions)

@ iamshuler-
Don't take blatantly sarcastic things too seriously on this forum. We like to joke around a bit. Okay, a lot.

As for your original queery, take luvz2ride's advice.

thanks for the info. Looks like it might work.

iamshuler 08-30-2010 08:35 AM

Guess I was being too serious.
