    Thanks - Alters, I have been thinking it might be time to go back to our GG and try different non slip pads. It was great for us, but once mare developed a little bit of muscle it started climbing...

    I have been eyeing it with interest for my pear-shaped almost-pony. She has withers, very laid back shoulder, etc. Every saddle seems to climb up her shoulders. Yes, saddle fitter has strip...

    In the HPM video I actually noticed a big, visible give forward with the hands at one point (it looked like it was the right thing to do in the moment, to me) which reminded me of the Spanish riders.

    I hate Windows 10! On my "older" (4 years) laptop, there is no update for the video driver I have to enable it to work with Windows 10, so most videos play badly or not at all.

    I have both. The shim pad is a bit thicker because of the shim pockets. I find it noticeable. Mine are both about 5 years old, so the newer models might be different somehow.
