    Saddle Channel Width?

    My horse has a broad back and fairly wide spine. That said, she prefers the saddle to have a narrower channel not a wider channel. I am talking she likes 3 fingers instead of 4 or 5. It does not make...

    Crotchety, I find that I can ride longer in the Hermes since it allows my leg to drop straight down. Also, FWIW, I just let my leg hang (not try to get it too far back under me). My lower leg willl...

    Remember that that ancient Hermes won't feel very good. When I sat in it my butt said "No!" When I sat in a newer one my butt said"Aaaaaah!" And my horse said"Finally!!".

    I tried this saddle a couple of years ago. My horse liked it, but the block was too straight forcing my nee back and jamming me in my lower back. But, I have a long femur.

    Crotchety DQ,
    The Hermes at Heritage is ancient and in bad shape. Don't even bother. Ebay has a 17.5 wide for $3,000 which looks to be in excellent condition. My horse is very similar to your horse...

    I would suggest that you look at the Prestige D 1 Zero. It is cut out for the shoulders so the horse can wear it slightly more forward plus the panels are shorter and marketed for a shorter backed...

    If you have a long femur, you need a more forward cut flap to accomodate your leg, even on a dressage saddle. Going to a bigger seat only puts you in ths backseat of the saddle behind your leg rather...

    The only way to know if your horse does or does not have ulcers is to scope him.

    I thought my horse liked it, but the more I rode her in it the less she liked it. I tried several and the seats were not made the same. I only liked one of the 3 I sat in.

    If you suspect ulcers then scope your horse before treatment! I suspected ulcers last October and had my vet agreed to treat for 30 days with GastroGard without scoping my horse would still have...

    One Two Three,

    I do not get my Ulcergard from my vet and she encourages me to find the cheapest source. She won't give pop rocks to her own horses.

    Per a veterinarian friend: Re Abler products, I chose not to use it because it is produced in India by a manufacturer that is not FDA approved. When we called, they said that they were GMP certified...

    Meup,
    Thanks. I did check these out at one time, but the panels will never work for my horse. I am looking at Equipe, Hermes, Childeric and L'Apogee. I sat in a L'Apogee and am waiting on the...

    Meup,
    Love the pogo stick image. I love the way Charlotte rides. It proves that you don't need to "sit into your horse". Her seat is light and her seatbones seem to just fluff along in the saddle. ...

    LadyAmber, Reread my post. If I had treated my horse for 28 days with Omeprazloe, her ulcers would not have healed. She was on Gastrogard for 8 weeks because of the severity of her ulcers and they...

    I've been watching some of her videos and she rides with a very straight leg. She almost looks more like she is hovering over the saddle rather than actually sitting into it. More like she is sitting...
