First he had a loose shoe that needed to be tacked on. The shoer added a nail to his other shoe too, so hopefully we will get through this next round of rain.
|Checking his jaw|
The fitter said that Cupid has big shoulders, and I need to be mindful I am not putting the saddle too far forward. She showed me the proper placement, which is a tiny bit further back than I usually have it. I told her I get thrown off when the girth looks too far back and she said that indeed that is that is how we used to be taught to put the girth right behind the elbow but that is not always correct. So when I get my saddle back it will come with an anatomic girth.
She also looked at my jumping saddle. At first she seemed a little displeased that it was foam not wool, but said it actually does fit Cupid well. We will continue using it with the wool half pad.
