    Default Vesuvio DJ CC or Vega HELP !

    My horse is a dutch/tb cross with big shoulder, long wither. he has some dip/curve to his back but its not a very short back. To me it looks kind of in between curvy and straight tho i'm not a great judge on top lines yet. I currently have the amerigo cc and it slides back on him. The gullet is properly fit by a fitter. It is a med/wide. I also feel like when i'm posting that i'm posting from a chair seat (like i'm getting up out of a chair) and not like i'm already up and swinging from my pelvis.
    THanks for the input!

    I'm not sure about the specs of fitting your horse, but my horse seems to have a similar back shape to yours, and I have a Vega that while I love the feel of, my horse absolutely hates. I've had it professionally fitted and while the saddle fitter thinks it's about a 90% fit, he still hates it. I recently tried a few CWD saddles and the difference in his attitude and movement was remarkable! Even the CWD rep noted that the saddle she thought fit him best was not the one he was happiest in, so he's kind of an anomaly. At least he is very clear with what he does and doesn't like!
