Idaho, Paso Fino ridden in English Saddle

Question: Can you tell me the fine points for the correct saddle fit when using a english type saddle? Could a  Icelandic saddle work and do the paso's fit similar to an Icelandic as far as the fitting to the back goes? 


From Panelist Erica

Every horse's back is different. The best I can tell you is to always try on the saddle you want to buy and have it fitted to see if it works for your horse. An Icelandic saddle may fit a Paso better because they are both smaller horses. 

Good luck!
