[RC] Shimming Saddles - Lynne Tomovick

I've heard good things about the Specialized saddle. I don't have one, but I do have experience using shims to modify my saddle into a more or less "one size fits all" with very good luck.

What makes the Specialized saddle shimming principle different than shimming any other saddle? Just that the shims are more easily attached to the panel/saddle?

Would finding a balanced saddle for the rider with wide enough and supportive panels/tree for the horse, then adding shims as needed be the same idea?

I'm curious to hear people's experiences.

A good endurance saddle pad with shim pockets could be a hot item. I know David Genedek sells them, but they are heavy western style ones.
