Re: [RC] [CTR] Girth bumps? - Jennifer Thompson

Hi Jennifer,

This can often happen if you don't leave the saddle on until the horse
cools down. It can happen in the girth area and at the shoulders.


I also agree that you should ride with at least a breastcollar to keep the
saddle in place.

Thanks Lissa!

I will try to remember not to take the saddle off ASAP like I usually do on
this next ride and see what happens.  Of course, I won't know if the bumps will
have reappeared again anyway, but heck, I'll do whatever I can to prevent them!

I do ride with a breast collar, but not a crupper.  I *bought* a crupper a
while back, just haven't used it yet.  :)    Probably would have helped.
Hindsight, and all that.
