    YES a saddle will cause all sorts of difficulties if it's not fitting the horse and/or the rider! It has nothing to do with having or not having a deep seat, or big blocks, or any other particular...

    I have a large for my 17.5 inch saddle. The seat part fits very nicely, but there is a lot of extra on the sides of the back, like it's made for much broader panels than my saddles have. It also...

    My tb's are both in a Myler french link now, and both are happier in that than the kk's I spent $$$ on for them. The Myler bits are thin and lightweight, perfect for horses with small mouths and low...

    With my high/long withered tb, I've had success with both an Albion high head and a Wintec Isabell. He's recently outgrown his Albion (which is adjustable, but only by a saddler and would cost a few...

    My guess would be that your biggest challenge is trying to find a dressage position in a jump saddle! The balance of a jump saddle is made to support the rider in a forward seat position with shorter...

    I have an old Roma pad that I actually like. It's not near as thick as one of the more expensive pads (but it's almost 10 years old now, I don't remember how thick it started!), but that's exactly...

    What about a memory foam pad? It will compress more where there is more pressure, and fill in space where there is a gap, leaving a more even contact. I have the Fleeceworks Perfect Balance pad, and...

    One of my horses was doing that, it was making me crazy!! Finally figured out his saddle was a little too narrow for him, so it was restricting his back or shoulder. Put a wider saddle on him, and...
