[Treeless saddle] Pressure points from two-pointing
My gelding has a hard-to-fit back with laid-back shoulders, forward girth grove, and well-sprung ribcage so most saddles slide forward and lay on the shoulders. Crupper is not an option for me (I just plain hate them with a passion :mad:).
I have Barefoot Cheyenne (no VPS) and I've tried it a couple of times. My boy moves so much better with it and the saddle seems to keep in place better. The only problem is that we train in trot most of the time and I'm usually two-pointing which creates clear pressurepoints (dry spots) under the stirrups although I have a grandeur pad and a thick standard english pad.
Have you had similar problems? How did you solve it?
I've been thinking about getting a BF hevy-duty pad (for heavy riders) or a haf pad or other similar firm pad with foam/rubber inserts and hope it'll clear out the problem...
