    J-Lu, what kind of withers and scapulae did your 15.1 pear have?

    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...
  5. Saddles for the Pear-Shaped Horse Spinoff: Anyone tried the Passier Compact?

    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...

    The Delfina girth (20") seems well proportioned for my pear-shaped almost-pony. I just started using it so we will see.

    I don't think it is the most angled, but for my pear-shaped, hugely well-sprung, almost-pony with very set back shoulders - the Delfina (20") is well proportioned and seems to be helping keep the...

    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 ride in Sprengers and definitely feel it in my knees when I ride in non-flex stirrups. I sent you a PM.

    Weird... it sounds just like my mare who is on Psyllium this week. I skipped it for a couple of months, and she is prone to soft poop/poop issues similar to what you describe (but milder) when she's...

    My goodness the Fairfax is expensive!!!! I'm looking for something for my very small, pear-shaped, baroque-ish horse who wears a 20' (a 22" will work if it's on the more compact side generally). ...

    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.

    What the heck is a "knife edge" stirrup?

    I'm looking for something lighter and sleeker than my Sprenger flex stirrups. All the Fillis irons seem to now be weighted? I've never heard of "knife edge" before, but there it is...:confused:

    Your horse has to learn to accept your correct position. An unbalanced saddle on a very small horse will make a correct position close to impossible. At least that's my experience on my little pear...
