well, a saddle won’t change the trot. If you’re looking for a smooth trot (jog) you will change horses sooner or later.
When I was looking for a horse I wanted a smooth jog. I came across a nice 5 yo mare and it was love when I laid eyes on her. I tried her and found out her trot has too much drive. I asked the trainer whether there is a chance to teach her a smooth jog or not. He told me he’d try it but chances a 30:70 against my idea. So I searched further until I met 3 yo Kohilent who has a very smooth jog.
What I want to tell you is you cannot ask your horse for things he cannot give to you. This will make you both unhappy.
Make it a great day!
