Apollo has NOT changed shape. I do NOT need a new jump saddle. Mine is SO NOT bridging. It doesn't rock. NO.
No ... please ... I don't want to have to saddle shop. I definitely don't want to do it on a budget like mine would be.
I mean, I could get away with it for a while yet. At least until I had some money. I wonder if there's one to borrow? Sigh. Just ... sigh. It fit so well when Apollo first came to the barn ... but now it's just not working. He grumps when I put it on and tighten the girth, which he didn't do when he came, and he grumps when I go to take it off. I wonder if any of my newly discovered jumping position problems are attributable to this? Meh. Just meh.
I think a riser pad in the meantime, unless there's one I can borrow, which is unlikely. Then, once I have some money, after February or so, I might be able to sell this one and shop for a new one. I am going to have to think long and hard and come up with the best possible plan if I need a new saddle. And I have the sinking (ha!) feeling that I do.
