Well I bought it to fit a beefier QH. Full QH bars and 7" gullet. When I buy my first horse, that is the type of horse I am looking for anyway, a beefier QH. So I'm hoping that it'll all work out. If not, I can always sell/trade it and get something different.

I'm glad you got it figured out. Sometimes riggin can be difficult!

The question is, what would it hurt if I rode the saddle with the fenders up that high?

I'm not sure about the fender thing, but I just saw this thread (I know, I know, where have I been) - just have to say that I LOVE your new saddle!

Well, technically, I think it may end up damaging the tops of the fenders where they attach to the strap. How long and if it will actually ever hurt them...I dunno.

Then there is the thought that the fenders are there to protect your pants/legs from the filthy beast beneath you...So...You might get dirty...

Mostly , it just looks silly.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Well pooopy.

Getting dirty dosent bother me, nor does looking silly. But I dont want to damage my saddle. So I will ride in it on Thursday, and then see what I can do. I can possibly get more holes punched in, but I'll have to see how far down the fenders will have to be, before I can make those arrangements.

OKAY! WAIT A MIN!

When I lowered the fenders, and then put the stirrups back together on the shortest setting possible, not only were they way to long but they bent almost to the fat part of the fender, making it really hard to flex, (thus reeking havoc on my ankles and knees).

What now?
