Ive just stumbled across this site, and what a wonderful informative site it is too!!
Sadly, alot of the information my Ex Track TB has had to find out the hard way.... when i got him 19 months ago, he was ridden in a narrow saddle, to which he visibly flinched at the sight of. With time, care, love and well fitting tack, hes a completely changed beast, with no back problems or tack issues. Infact, out comes the saddle and he says "yippee here we go!!"
Best thing i ever did for him (so far) was to buy him a Balance saddle, www.balanceinternational.com I was a total sceptic, but my TB Ed has changed the way i think, and im so glad i got one.... Hes now in the equivalent of an english wide saddle... which saddle fitters over here cant understand how he gets wither clearance from a wide saddle... well he has healthy muscle either side of his withers that supports the saddle..!!
Anyway, Exellent website, i shall be bookmarking it!!
