This is for a college assignment
The exact question is “When might extra padding be useful for saddle fit?”
Based on the nature of the questions, my teacher did not mean saddle pads, but panel flocking. I’ve tried googling every variety of this question I could think of, and all I get are saddle pad articles. Can someone tell me why this would be useful for saddle fitting? I think that this would be used for horses that are either narrow or have sensitive spots, but I’d rather have a firm answer than guesses. Thanks!
