Horses with a burr under their saddle

Girthiness is commonly associated with the consequences of tightening the girth too quickly when the saddle is first put on. But although there has been so much progress in the field of saddle making during the last decades and the awareness of the importance of saddle fitting and careful girthing has positively changed, many of our modern riding horses across all breeds are girthy. On reflection, this does not come as a surprise. What if the reason for the girthiness of a large part of the horses concerned were to be found in the low back position?

Breed genetics

The most important aspect in the context of genetics is the specific genetic background of every horse breed. What does this mean? Nowadays the intriguingly great choice of races makes it possible for horse lovers to choose exactly the horse that matches their personality and emotions. However, with a decision like this, one should not forget that every race embodies a certain breeder’s intention which is inevitably connected to their country of origin. This means that it is necessary that every future horse owner has a closer look at the horse riding culture of the country of origin of his or her desired race. And as well as the horse, also the rider comes from a certain riding culture which has developed over centuries and which is striving for its own ideals.

This situation should be clear to every horse owner and every trainer; and it is the latter who need to address this situation to prevent stress and strain of both quadruped and biped.

A typical example is the by now very popular Spanish horse. It was bread to perform with high elevation of the trunk. If this horse is ridden without a preparing ground-work and its transition into the saddle, the way it is commonly done in our latitude, horse owners very soon will be faced with stress situations whose cause will often remain unknown.
