I'm having a hard time fitting a saddle correctly to Harley. I have tried four saddles and none seem to fit this little horse of mine. I decided I am going to a saddle maker and have him fitted. The saddle I am currently riding is a Crates reiner and I have had it 12 years. Harley's back is not that rounded and he seems to have a good wither but for some reason saddles just roll on him and he has dry spots when I am finished riding.
The dry spots trouble me because I can see evidence of white hairs forming where they are. I am wanting to go to a cutting saddle this year anyway for the cattle classes but sure don't want to buy a saddle that doesn't fit. I have tried various different pads from felt, wool and even a closed cell foam pad. Hopefully the fitting will go well and I can find a saddle to fit him right.
