Ill fitting saddle
My current saddle used on my mare doesnt fit her. She's uncomfortable in it and in turn riding is frustrating and unproductive for both of us. However I can't afford to get a saddle fitter out nor buy a whole new saddle anytime soon. Is there anything I can do to help with this? Would riding entirely bareback (I have a bareback pad that has about 1-1.5 inches of padding) until I can get a good saddle be better, or would that be worse than riding with the unfit saddle? Ideally I wouldnt have to ride at all until I got a new saddle, but that might not be for another year.
