We’ve been having some problems at the canter. And by some, I mean a lot. At first I thought I had trained them into her and with time they would get better, but they haven’t been. So, now I’m looking into other reasons. The first is that it may be her saddle doesn’t fit.
At the tack shop where I work, there is a Master Saddler so I brought in some pictures of her in the saddle and they think she needs a completely new one. They wanted to see her moving in the one she has now so I took a little video.
The towel is there to level out the saddle. It’s really the wrong fit. Next week they’re coming out to my barn and bringing a bunch of saddles with them to find the right fit. Hopefully with the right saddle, she’ll stop having problems at the canter.
