Re: Deposit for sale horse question

If a buyer asked me to take a horse off of the market so they could look at it I would expect to be paid a nonrefundable deposit, especially if there are other people wanting to look at it. Those other people could very likely find a different horse to purchase while waiting for you to come and then...

Re: Best Half Pad To Put Under the Saddle Pad

I would just get a piece of real sheepskin, that's sheared, and cut to shape and use that. But I'll be the dense one and ask why you need a half pad under the pad or what you're trying to accomplish with it? My horse is just happier that way. Sheepskin is much softer and disperses heat much better....

Best Half Pad To Put Under the Saddle Pad

Do they make a half Pad that has no rolls? I know I can do a custom Mattes pad, but don't want to wait that long. Any other suggestions to reduce a lumpy look? My current half Pad has a back roll and that looks really funny.

I have a saddle on trial, It doesn't fit exactly right but I am looking for opinions on if it will be able to be tweaked to fit. I know it's a little low in front. The back floats off his back by about 1/4", it isn't much but I worry about the panel configuration. Any thoughts?
