This is my second saddle I've tried for my mare and it just doesn't seem to fit, I just don't know why? I'm not terribly savy fitting a western saddle (english no problem!), so I need some help.
The saddle looks great when my mare has her head up and standing still. But then when she walks the back of the saddle flips up about 3 inches. I tried a couple different pads, but all pretty much the same thing. She naturally drops her head down low when she moves. When she trots the thing just slaps up and down on her back, so she'd just stops trotting.
*I did set the saddle back about an inch or 2 after I took the first couple standing pics, I just wasn't thinking and forgot to retake them. The last pic she is walking up a hill, but it shows pretty well how much the saddle comes up.
And please excuse her hair, she is shedding faster than her hair is growing back. I had a my vet check her yesterday to be sure thats all it was
