Ok so it’s pretty clear that my saddle is not fitting my wide withered OTTB, to the point that she has micro spasms in the withers and has been prescribed Robaxin.
Pro saddle fitter and vet agree that I need a wide gullet/channel. I currently am riding in a prestige, and I’m ordering demos of other prestige saddles to try. My tree is a good fit, but the gullet is too narrow.
The other saddles suggested as good fits are all AP OR GP type saddles (Albion/ Black Country/etc). I’m freaking out. I need a good saddle that I can hopefully find used), that is going to give me a decent shot at position and won’t look embarrassing at shows…bonus if it’s flocked with wool not foam (how did I not even realize that was a thing??).
