Thanks! I'll try that tonight before I ride...and I do have a narrower gullet I could try (thankfully since it has the Easy Change system if that's the only issue I can just go buy another gullet for $20!!) The one I use now is Medium Wide (she was a Wide when I first got her but she's lost weight and toned up since then! She was really overweight before...), but I'm wondering if she may just be a Medium now. The Medium Wide seems to fit her fine though, it's not sitting on her spine or on her withers...although she has practically NO withers so maybe that's a little deceiving?

Ugh, I need to break down and buy one of those Wintec Easy Change Gullet measuring systems and see what size she is really supposed to wear according to their measurements!
