  1. What saddles should I consider for this horse?

    I have a 5yr gelding, and I am considering getting a dressage saddle. I have obtained back tracings I am sending to a long distance fitter, but in the interim, does anyone have any thoughts or...

    It's interfering with your riding (which will ultimately make your horse unhappy), and its poor fit is big risk for making your horse uncomfortable/unhappy? Sell it! County saddles are lovely...

    Don't get your panties in a twist--you said you couldn't sell him because he was on your property. Period. My words were in response to that. Though come to think of it, if you found him a home...

    I know Jeter--I schooled him in college many moons ago. I don't think much (anything) was done with him after I left. With him, you are likely going to have to start at square one and completely...

    If I had the option to take a year off my "real job" and be a WS, I'd jump at the chance. My real job will always be there when I'm done.

    netg, I know I'm not perfect, but in my defense that was his trial ride, and previous owner put him in a medium tree Butet. ;) Watching the video also reminds me how much we DIDN'T have "power...

    I had the World's Best Draft Cross, and it took me almost a solid year to get him fit/strong enough to canter reasonably well in a small indoor (he was green broke when I got him). This is his...

    I put my (not the highest quality) OTTB in a figure 8 sometimes because it makes him look much sportier, like he belongs. He schools mostly in a plain cavesson at home, which has the same function,...

    Wouldn't another concern be breeding this horse and passing on a back like that to her foals, though?

    I have it. It is a seriously sturdy piece of tack (thick harness leather), but the leather is decent and it's well padded. The TB size fits my ~16h big-shouldered horse on the middle holes.

    saje, don't screw over the vet just doing his/her job. Pay the bill, then go after the BO if you feel it's necessary, but don't stiff your vet.

    Now come on. Isn't this a little unnecessary? Isn't the fact that I spiffed this horse up so much already (not quick or cheap) an indication that I'm not sending him to an auction?

    I don't think making me sound like a terrible person is really appropriate here. I have put a lot of weight on this horse, given him countless chlorhex baths, given him the best in...

    It looks just a touch too forward on his withers and a bit too narrow, but I'm sure the real saddle fitters will chime in.

    Do I tough it out with this horse?

    So this may be a bit of a pity party...forgive me.

    For about 3 years (while I was in grad school) I had the most amazing draft cross. I was just coming off a TB mare that was athletic as all get...

    So clearly you only like the input that fits your preconceived notion and ignore the educated input (not talking about me here--talking about Kitt). Fascinating. That's fine, but don't go asking...

    It comes down to whose comfort matters more--yours, or the horse's?

    My BC Maelstrom has a doeskin seat (looks kind of similar to suede)--I treat it like suede. Really don't put anything on it, use a suede brush to restore the nap when needed.
