    Hi! I currently have a Pessoa Gen X Elite saddle with the wither size medium. I had it on trial for 2 weeks and seemed the perfect fit. However, I recently noticed that, while riding, the saddle seats too low in the front. I checked her and she shows no signs of back pain but exhibits girthy...
  2. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hello everyone! My saddle just got reflocked and my saddle fitter advised me to use a memory foamhalf pad just for extra cushion. It has to be a thin one though. Any recommendations? I heard about thinlines but they are very pricey and I live in Portugal so shipping is a nightmare! Thanks in...

    I've been riding my mare for four months now and I'm noticing a trend in her behavior, she's more relaxed and responsive when I ride her bareback vs with a saddle. She listens to all of my cues and responds immediately. When I saddle her she's fussy and inattentive. Example: I ask for a simple...

    I didn't see this forum beforehand, so I also have a post in the 'horse tack' forum. I'm in need of a saddle for my 15 year old, 14.3hh arabian mare. She has proven to be very hard to fit as I have tried numerous saddles. She has prominent sloping shoulders, a round barrel, and is slightly...
