Your horse’s body can change from week to week, or even day to day. Your horse can lose weight around his barrel and topline from heavy work sessions, causing gaps between the saddle pad, saddle and the horse. Or, if he’s been off, fat can create a tighter fit, which can make the saddle uncomfortable. The build of growing horse’s body is always changing as they grow and slowly start to fill out where the saddle rests. Horses with changing toplines can be difficult to find the perfect saddle pad.
