Issues with the saddle?
I realize that this is a saddle issue, not a horse issue. I got my first horse last fall (a year ago) and a saddle for her shortly after. The trainer I had told me that it fit her fine. I think it does, but I don't have a saddle rack yet so it's a bit out of form and the wool on the bottom of the saddle is falling apart. So my horse got back pain after a ride or two and now refuses for it to be near her. I think the biggest thing is that the saddle is a little out of form since we have to store it on it's pommel. But could the wool deteriorating be a factor for her back pain? The saddle pad I have is Professional's Choice, I used to use a blanket but switched to a pad. Advice for this please? It's an easy fix to get a saddle rack, but replacing the wool/fleece is something that will have to wait until I get the money to pay for it, and I would like to ride regularly this winter; I don't want Ember to be in pain over something that should be fun for both of us. Please be nice :) Thanks.
