More questions as promised
#1
Hook, thanks for the templates.

I have determined that the best fit for Dani is the 7.5" Wide. Is that FQHB? That's what the saddle is that I'm using on her and it seems to fit well--until we go up or down a really steep hill. I can add a breast collar to keep it from sliding back while going uphill but going down, I actually got off and walked because she was obviously uncomfortable with the saddle sliding forward over her shoulder blade. I put an extra blanket on yesterday and it did well but we didn't do the really steep hills. I won't be able to try those hills until the weekend because my trailer is in the shop--no brakes!

Any ideas or suggestion? (For the saddle--not the trailer!) [Big Grin]

Glad you got the templates.

7.5" is wider than FQHB which is usually 7".

7.5" does seem pretty wide from the pictures of your horses back. Do you think you could take a couple showing the templates in place?

Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

7" seemed to work fine as well. Saddle is wider than that though so may be the reason the saddle is sliding. I might not get photos until early next week. I'll be out of town most of the weekend and I need an extra pair of hands, which is why I didn't post photos to begin with. It's a little harder trying to do it all by yourself. I'll see what I can do. Thanks.
