Things are at a bit of a pause at the moment. Cinder came home after the show and got a few days off. She also got her teeth done, a cap popped, and her spring shots. I rode her last weekend and she was good, if a bit sore.
I knew my saddle was a bit wide for her, but with the Mattes half pad I could shim it and make it work. For the show, I didn't even think about it, and used my regular shaped pad. It didn't give her as much wither clearance and she was a sore the day after the show. That soreness was still apparent last weekend, and this week.
It's very clear that it's time to start shopping for her own saddle. I have one arriving today to try, and Trainer A (who is sponsored by Voltaire) is seeing when she can get the rep down to measure Cin for me. For now Cin is getting introduced to the BoT sheet and has the chiropractor coming next week. Pray to the saddle fitting gods we can find a saddle that works for both of us relatively quickly and cheaply. She's still got a lot of filling out to do and I'm 100% certain what works for her now will not work in another couple of years so I'm really hoping we can find a used saddle that will work for now.
