Re: RC: saddle question

My oldest horse is not evenly developed, which I discovered after starting
CTR's.  I like to post on the right diagonal, and Fix prefers that side, will
bounce me back to the right if I try to post on the left.  When I first got
him & just pleasure trail rode I always posted on the right, & no doubt
muscled him up more on 1 side.  With the subsequent horses I tried to be
conscientious about changing my posting diagonals.  If the horse's strong side
is the side you like to post on, it can be a bad combination for
overdeveloping one side of the horse.
Also, check that the tree isn't broken on the one side, altho I believe you
said you had used more than 1 saddle & still got the problem, so it is
unlikely that all the saddles had broken trees on that side!

Good luck,
