Saddle looks deep and what's around her back end? What type of bit do you ride her in and is it pretty standard to your breed? It looks like you ride with some collection and I am wondering what does a peruvian do on a loose or flopping rein? Sorry for all my questions, but it's all so interesting!

In the second picture: What is the think hanging down from the belly of the horse?

I know what you mean about fiting a western saddle on a gaited horse--walkers have a short back as well and if it doesn't have a round skirt or hasn't been designed for a gaited horse (square skirt) likely it does not fit! If those leather straps went under the belly, it looks like a problem waiting, but it looks like they go from the saddle around the back end. Would they break away easily if caught on something? Did you say PP's generally go barefoot? Do you have a stud? Or a picture of the one you use?

Would be nice, but we don't have enough detail in these pix. You need the sun at the back of the photographer to get good detail in any shot. (Or use a flash.) On the mare and foal shot the sun is on the other side of the pair, and in the "Tack shot" the horse's head is turned enough to put a big shadow on most of that side of the horse.
