I bought my first horse 10 years ago and she came with a saddle that was too small for her, I didn’t know at the time how much damage she had to her back, in the muscles but the spine also.  It took appointments with a physio and a vet x-ray to find the extent of the damage.  Sadly, the mare was unrideable and she became a brood mare.  I have another horse now and can’t stress enough how we should be regularly checking saddle fit.  This course has really opened my eyes.
