Just after some sugestions please! For our youngster, he's been backed this summer. Is a little snippy about having his girth tightened, nothing major just ears back and occasional leg waving. He's not bothered by saddle arriving, being placed on him, or me/OH mounting so fairly sure its not a back pain thing, but saddler coming Tuesday to double check saddle and then have number of McTimoney person who I want to give him a once over as well to be double sure.
(ETA he is exactly the same with a roller as is with saddle so again, as sure as I can be that it is not saddle related)
He's significantly better with a sheepskin girth sleeve on, and can occasionally swipe with a hind leg when you brush under his belly so think he's just a bit of a sensitive soul! He's currently only got an old school webbing girth as didn't want to spend too much then end up changing saddles for any reason and it be the wrong length but once we've had check on tuesday I'm hoping the saddle will last a few months at least!!
So, recommendation of best girths for slightly sensitive souls please, happy to spend a bit but not ridiculous amounts - prob up to about £50..... (can't believe I'm saying that, only ever spent half that on a girth before!)
PS I use a wintec comfort elastic on my boy - the one that is slightly elastic right through, not those horrid elastic at one end ones!!
