    Cool Need Saddle Advice

    I have a new 17hh TB with high withers. I have tried several different saddles on him and none truly fit him well. I am borrowing one now that fits him fairly well, but I would like to buy one for him that really fits and I'm not sure where to start. I am looking for a western saddle that is comfortable for long trail rides. If anyone also has tips on good, breathable saddle pads I would love advice there as well. Moving to Texas has put a serious dent in my riding time with how hot it is. I would love for us both to be comfortable. I have included a picture of him. If there are other pictures that would be more helpful please let me know and I will take them and upload them asap.

    Thank you for your time

    He's gorgeous! I would suggest a getting a regular western saddle, but with a saddle pad that specifies in wither relief. Western saddles that are made for high withers are pretty hard to come by Like this one: Professionals Choice SMx Orthosport Pad - pricey, but if your horse is comfortable it's worth it. Also, I'm sure you could find something cheaper, too! Good luck!
