I’ve had a Custom saddle previously without hybrid panels. Looking at one now with hybrid panels and trying to determine if it would or would not be a benefit for my horse. Horse requires a saddle with a bit more curve front to back, not flat or straight backed, has a moderate wither (A-framed), and is sensitive to saddle fit. I tend to ride with a prolite or wool half pad.
From a few prior threads, it looks like hybrid panels benefit professionals who may need to use one saddle on multiple horses and therefore, keep flocking from from molding to one back. It means there are less flocking adjustments that can be done specifically?
For those of you with hybrid panels, are you happy with them? Thanks!
