Thanks all for the replies!! I did send my big girl to 30 days of training....and asked her trainer why her seat popped up in the back when I lounged her in it. IT'S TOO BIG!!! I had NO idea. I did get a wide tree, 7" flex tree. It didn't hurt her with a super built up (reinsman M2 contoured light 1 1/2" pad) and rubber tree. Which is why I went with this one when I bought her. (I've only had her one year). I immediately started shopping for saddles when I found out it was too big.

The second issue is the cantle of the saddle slaps me in the bottom at a fast trot/canter. I DO sit back at the canter and it felt like the saddle was slapping me out of position--forward. No bueno. Figured it was a good time to swap saddles out. :)

I have a Bob's Custom Saddles Reiner on it's way on trial. Crossing my fingers it works. My #1 priority is making sure it doesn't hurt my girl. She's a sweet sweet girl and I try to keep a light touch and flex trees and alpaca cinches on her.... I really care about her comfort and health :)

Thanks all for the recommendations and I'll let you know how it goes. I like the WADE saddle and Tucker saddles. If this one doesn't work out, I'm moving down the line. I really appreciate all your suggestions!!! What a wonderful community!!!! :)
