WOW! I didn't realize his was made into a sticky! A big thank you to the Mods for doing so, I found these video's very informational, that by posting them I had hoped to of been able to help others in the process of saddle fit.

This made my day! Thank you and I am so thrilled that the Schleese Video's have been able to help others!

After talking to the local saddle fitter on phone I did some research and found an interesting site on tree shape:

Saddle Fitting - The Inside Journey

Just wanted to share...

Oii! My saddle was an expensive custom made dressage saddle that we bought from the BO, it fits every single thing except for the billet alignment, they are slightly, just slightly off!

Ahh, well, we were looking for an AP saddle anyways because me and my mom want to start getting him into jumping again, we'll be sure to match every check point!

Okay, so now I know the 9 reasons why Cinny's saddle doesn't fit and the 9 reasons for his stopping short, refusing to go forward, hopping up and/or rearing, short stridedness, sore withers......and cranky attitude that only rears it's ugly head if I'm actually on him.

Saddle has been donated to local youth charity/horse rescue. New saddle has been ordered with a trial period and ability to return....sigh.....
