Last fall I went on a trail ride with a few of my barn members. I rode my fat halfinger pony in a nice western saddle. But this particular day it was muddy because it had rained the day before. Well my pony in scared of the mud. So the saddle was already slipping a little bit because he is fat and the mud didnt help it keep in place at all either. But anyways, we came across a mud puddle that stretched across the trail, so my pony did a 360 degree turn, and the saddle and me slid over his side so I was riding not on his back but on his side, and I couldnt get out of the saddle for a few minutes. Because my feet were stuck in the stirrups.
Ever since then I havent rode in a western saddle, but I have a trail ride coming up and I have to ride in a western saddle, and I am now really nervous and don't want to. And idk what to do.
