I recently got a new saddle, it's doing wonders for Max as his old one made him extremely sore. In general it fits very well, but there is a tad bit of rebound at the trot through the cantle. Not a lot- I barely noticed it when we lunged him and only slightly when I rode him.
We have always worked on getting his back muscling better as he's a pretty hollow horse generally, so it's hard to tell if it is a panel issue or just the way he tends to pop his back at the trot. We thoroughly inspected every part of the saddle static on him and then the panels seemed fine- parallel with his back slope and not curved where they shouldn't be.
I've emailed the saddle fitter about this but anyone have any ideas? I'm hoping the use of a half pad will work as I've heard that this issue can't be fixed with reflocking...
Like I said, in general the saddle fits wonderfully and he has improved in what he's able to give immensely just from the better fit, and he tells me if something is wrong (how we knew the previous saddle wasn't working) but he doesn't seem to be in any discomfort in this one.
Thanks for the input! I'll try today to get a vid of us trotting to see it in action.
