Western riding is supposed to be relaxed and comfortable for both you and your horse.
Here are six signs to watch for which could indicate that your saddle doesn’t fit your horse.
Regardless of the horses back length the rider still needs the same space in which to sit on the saddle and the same weight has to be distributed, so obviously the saddle seat cannot be shortened as the rider will not fit and therefore the conclusion until now has been to shorten the panel and in doing so increasing …
