Saddle Placement & Crossing Billets?
I have crossed my billets in the past, and want to try it on my current horse. I can't remember whether you cross the front over back, or back over front. I am thinking it makes more sense to attach the front one with the rear one over top of it. Also, there are many theories about where to place the saddle. Some say right behind the scapula and some say 2" behind it. Anytime I've ever placed the saddle farther back I feel like I am sitting too far back and not over the horse's center of balance. Like I'm sitting on a part of the back that has movement thus interfering with it. I'd be interested in your theories and experiences.
