I hated his old saddle it's an ugly strange thing, but it is just fine, Sarah managed to jump in it fine and controlled him perfectly fine. Yes he is picking up topline a lot, but can't you just get your AP you were going to use on him fitted? So it DOES fit him... ';' How will you SJ without a saddle to fit? Explain to me how you can't XC coz you don't have a saddle that works, but can SJ ... unless you're using a Dressage saddle to do your SJ??
