[RC] saddle fitting and sweat - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Karen dekat@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello.  I have a question maybe somebody can help me. I have a 14.2 short 
backed, wide shouldered arab.  i have been seriously arena riding her since 
october in a heated indoor arena (in frosty winnipeg, manitoba).  when i am 
done a workout, she is heavily sweated everywhere except on her back!!!  the 
hair on her back is smooth and her back is warm, but not sweated.  there are no 
ruffed up hair but all is smooth.  I use a cheap regular western type of pad 
with a felt looking lining. (maybe the pad is absorbing the sweat, but the pad 
isnt wet either) The saddle isnt pinching on her withers but i am at a loss as 
to why she isnt sweated on her back.

Can somebody help me???
