Need Saddle Fit Advice
My western saddle is a tad to big for my 2 SSH geldings . Is there anything I can use to build up in the shoulder area so it doesn't sit down on their back ? Buying a new saddle is out of question right now
Contoured western saddle pads certainly help.
I use and english wither relief pad for my boy and it helps a ton. Nothing is a substitute for a good fitting saddle but sometimes you have to get close to fit and then pad the rest.
I have tried every size gullet I can find and none seem to fit correctly . Was thinking i saw a built up type pad once but couldn't remember . Thanks
Are you thinking of the roper pad with extra padding just behind the shoulders? Have you tried an Arab tree?
i like to help you on this.
please show me a picture.
every thing have a solution
Since a new saddle is out of the question, here is my suggestion. I just bought one of these for my mare that has some diminishing muscle mass to her shoulder/wither area. Works like a dream!
Classic Equine BioFit Fleece Bottom Correction Pad
have you tried any padding underneath ?
please try to fill the gap of wither and gullet.
you will get good result.
if you can show me couple of pictures then i can asnwer more better.
thanks and its not a big probelm and we will solve the same.
I haven't tried adding any extra padding yet . Will try to get some pics for you in the next day or so . Thanks so much
Yes, please try and let me know.
if possible with pics.
best of luck
Saddlerymen... you cant fill the gap between the wither and the gullet! All the pressure will end up on the wither.... Saddlehorse, send us some photos so we can give you proper educated responses. I have a SSH too, and just love him!!
