Sorry Copper...haven't checked this post in awhile. It hasn't caused any dry areas on my horse. However, I did use it on my two year old, who is tall and very lanky at this point, and it didn't fit him as well as I liked -- no dry spots, but I didn't like the fit on him, so I went back to my old hereford on him, which fits very well on all my horses too.
I've been real pleased with the Corriente...rode quite a few miles in it now and just gets better and better every time I ride it. I'd recommend it, but then saddles are kinda like gloves -- each one fits a person and horse different. I like it, it's comfortable, tough, and has pulled it's weight in my book.
