Re: Re: Sports saddle

I must agree with this. I had similiar problems with a sports saddle on a
wide welsh cob, who is much the same build as a Paso. He lost hair under the
rear of the saddle and was very funny about his withers. He has white hair
there now.

friend with a very dinky slim Arab has no problem with her sports saddle

I sold my sports saddle at a great loss ( due to tax and shipping to Uk it
had cost me a lot to import) and have a free and easy which I am very happy
