Well, thanks for that very intelligent addition to this thread. Obviously you did not read all the posts and if you did, you did not read very well. As said girlfriend, I am not a trainer, I own one horse, but I have read a lot, tried a lot, and worked a lot with my horse, and I have simply offered my boyfriend to teach him what I know. Therefore, I will be an instructor in the literal sense of the word (I'll be instructing), but I'm not a riding instructor.
The post wasn't meant to be pointless, maybe the thread after it did kind of go there, but what do you care?
Then back to your ability to read previous posts - there was no ill-fitting saddle, just not a super comfortable saddle, and the reason I couldn't do anything about it was because we went on a trail ride on horses owned by the hotel where we were staying at the moment, and believe me, I did my best to pick out the best tack possible for those horses before we got on (the people there were very nice and good-willing, just not super knowledgeable, and available tack was limited). I'll also have you know we switched horses the second day and I came to find out what a madly bumpy trot that horse had, amplified by the fact we were on the trail and the horse was excited.
