I have 4 saddles and 2 horses, they are both thorougbreds, and similar(to my untrained eye) in shape/width except for DJs wither being more prominant than Mitch's.
I would watch the videos in the sticky thread, but dad would kill me if he realised how much internet would be used loading so many videos, so I'll watch them when I can.
I have 4 saddles, and at least one that I know definitely doesn't fit me so that will be getting the flick shortly (my butt grew
And for reference, I'm not relying on the internet to fit my saddles long term, I do have plans on going to a saddle fitter as soon as I can afford it and when he is down this way, he will be fixing my dressage saddle while he is down here, providing it fits at least one of my horses, and me.
For now though, if I were to do my own saddle fitting session on Sunday, providing the weather holds, can I post pictures of the saddle on the horse, and me in the saddle to get opinions on whether the saddle fits well enough to ride in short term? I don't work my horses hard, I can't right now due to my health, but I do ride a couple times a week, rather short rides etc, mainly Mitch but DJ will be getting bought back in soon hopefully, provided I have a saddle to ride her in.
I'm going to post a couple pictures of my leather dressage saddle for now, but that is mainly to see that I am getting the right photo angles, or whether I need photos of my entire horse as well as close ups. P1050179.jpg Attachment 327729
PS, I feel like a bit of an idiot needing to ask whether my saddles fit my horses, but I would rather ask a more experienced eye and look like an unknowledgable idiot than not ask and wonder why on earth my horse is misbehaving. But like I said, I WILL be making the trip with both my horses to see a real life saddle fitter as soon as I can, this is only a temporary measure.
