Outgrowing the dressage saddle

Doh... Dangit!! Dan has gotten wide enough that he's outgrown Fleck's medium narrow dressage saddle. I put a medium on him today and he was much more willing to lift his back. Duh! Poor guy. He also seemed happier to stay in front of my leg. Of course he was also desperately trying to veer towards the new gray horse. He's obsessed with grays! So it could have been that, but... he definitely needs a different saddle. Sigh....

he was great today though. Much more consistent in the connection in the bridle and much easier to keep in front of my leg. Yay!
