If you need a riser pad then your saddle does NOT fit.my horse has the exact same problem. and the saddle was checked and it fits perfect I also use a raiser pad and sheepskin. I don't really have any advice (still trying to find out the problem myself) but I'll be happy to see what everyone else says
I sure hope not after the saddle fitter was just out custom fitting the saddle to her back :shock: You know what...maybe I should email HER and see if she's got any ideas why the hair rubbing happens - geez how did it take me this long to think up THAT idea?! :lol:Have not read all posts. Sorry...on a new tablet and I am an idiot.
Is the saddle bridging?
That's a good idea, and pretty much the only one I haven't tried up to this point! So why not, I think I'll give it a go!If your saddle is of a better quality and flocked with wool, you can eliminate the pad or cloth. As the horse sweats it will help the saddle conform to it's back. It takes about 20 rides for this to happen. In the meantime it's a chance to see if it eliminates the problem.
