Having saddle troubles as usual!
Here goes my first post!
My horse was being very against me tacking her up, normally she wouldnt mind at all but she started not even wanting me holding the saddle next to her.
Of course I called my saddle fitter and she came out to check the saddle, and af course it didnít fit! Now, this is the saddle that took us 9 months to find! And now if doesnít even fit! Ahhhhh!!!
My saddle fitter basically told me she is starting to build more muscle and now she has muscle in half her back but not the other, this means there is basically no saddle we could buy, let alone find, that would fit her.
This left us with 2 options, either we ride bareback until we can build on more muscle, or we purchase a treeless saddle.
Iím not a fan of treeless saddles. I think they are a bit of a wacky idea, but I trust my saddle fitter with my life so she recommended I get a barefoot which is anyway the only saddle I would have wanted as that is the one I trust the most.
Now Iím picking my brand new barefoot treeless saddle up in 5 days and I just questioned this, why didnít we use half pads? I do remember her saying something about why I canít but I just forgot what she said, so if anyone has been in the same shoes, please let me know!
Long story short: saddle didnít fit because muscle was distributed unevenly, why canít I just use a riser pad?
