Hi all, To make a long story short, I have a very round and wide horse with a forward girth groove. With big shoulders. I've come across a lot of diagreement with how his saddle should be placed. Generally I read and people say it should be behind the shoulder as possible. However his saddle/conformation want to place the saddle further up compared to other horse/saddle combos. I just had a very qualified fitter come out (certified master saddler, very experienced as well and highly recommended among those of my discipline) and she says this saddle wants to be higher up his back and it is designed to be OK. She says his shoulder is very large anyways and you'll never be 'clear'. The funny thing is that this is now the 3rd fitter (although the most qualified) to say the same thing. So at what point do I say 'OK you are outside the norm' or do I keep looking for someone who gives me the answer I want to hear??? Just wanting to hear thoughts. It is tough because my very respected dressage coach really dislikes seeing saddles high up. But I've now had multiple fitters all say the same???
