RE: [RC] [RC] saddle fit for low-withered horse - Laurie Durgin

Don't get rid of your crupper yet-age old problem-I have to use a crupper and breastplate on my muttony withered well sprung guy--helps them not to roll too....Saddles alwys did the neck creep on our hills, and the pads wiggled out the back. A tacky tack pad has helped me alot woith both roll and creepage-- but have not ridden more than 4 hours in it-then had a bit of soreness, so I add a pad on top of it.

==========================================


I was hoping that some of you out there may be able to
 give me some advice on helping to solve my saddle fit
problem on a new mare that I purchased.  The mare is
stocky, slightly high behind (in the rump) with lower
withers.  I have tried some saddles that fit her
width-wise, but they always seem to creep up her
withers, even with working her just on the flats.  Her
previous owner said that she had used an Orthoflex
cutback on her with a crupper without any problems.
I have tried an Orthoflex but it still seems to creep
up her withers.  I hate to rely on a crupper to keep
the saddle in place, but at this point I don't know
what else to try.  I don't have much experience with
using cruppers.
I have seen ads on Brown's CorrecTor pad which claims
to keep saddles in place, even on the downhills, but
have not found anyone that has tried it.  Has anyone
on Ridecamp know of anyone that has success with the
CorrecTor pad or even tried one?
Also, I've been told that ofter treeless saddles can
work good on horses with lower withers.
Is there anyone out there that has a horse with
similiar problem that has found anything that helps.
Any advice or input would be much appreciated!  You can email
me directly at billnkaren@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Thanks!!!!!!!
