    Watched the video.

    Could it be soreness? Sure.

    I think we have found the crux of your problem.

    A saddle has to fit BOTH rider and horse. If there's a choice, it needs to fit the rider--the horse side of the equation can be compensated for...

    Denny is no saint, either. There is something in the horse world for everyone. It's a matter of style. If you don't like GM's (or anyone else's for that matter), just move along.
