  1. What A/P or CC saddle do you ride your shark-withered horse in?

    I have a classic shark withered, broad shouldered OTTB. He is being leased out by a sweet 14 year old. She's the typical horse-crazy teen, as we all were, and wants to get her own saddle. He has a...

    My horse had a sore back during his ulcer bout. Almost felt like he was pooping (arching his back) while moving. (I think he was tightening his stomach because it hurt, causing his back to rise)...

    I've started clicker training my OTTB (from the ground). So far, so good. I can see the wheels turning in his head, which is a major step for a herdbound, energetic TB :yes:

    Oh, and my other thought is saddle fit! If he's happy working "naked" but not when saddled, that could be an issue. He may likely have a sensitive back, especially if he's very underweight. OTTBs can...

    My first thought was ulcers as well. (Been there with my OTTB) If you can get him scoped, great. If not, (I think it's expensive) see if the vet will prescribe you a short round of GastroGard (like,...

    Thank you all for the advice. I've read and read up on this behavior...the "easy" cure, of course, is separation. I hope the move will help, as well as having a mixed-sex herd. All gelding herds...

    I do ride him...if I go out after everyone is stalled for the night, he's perfectly "normal" to ride and we can go out about our business. I have his...

    Rec. Your Bareback Pad

    I'm looking for some plugs for great bareback pads. After spending a month trying on a zillion saddles for my horse, I've decided to wait a few months, save some money, let my horse's back readjust...

    I have an IRH (the one with changeable strips...without a strip it's just clear with black underneath) I think it looks nice and was reasonably priced.

    Maddening Saddle Search

    I lurk here a bit, but have only posted about saddle issues :)

    I have an OTTB who has shark withers with a hollow behind, connected to very large shoulders. Saddle shopping is a nightmare. We've...

  19. High Withered TB: What saddle do you ride yours in?

    I have a typically high withered OTTB. He's always struggled to keep a topline, so also has quite a spine on him. As you can imagine, I had a heck of a time finding a saddle to fit him. (The high...

    I've never had a problem with my OTTB in the ring with others. He's usually pretty stoic, in general, with commotion around him. :)

    Thanks for this thread! My 8yo OTTB does the same thing. He never seemed particularly tense while doing it either, I figured it was just a bad track habit or that he was tense after all. I'm...
