These hard but non-painful lumps are located directly under where the saddle presses against the body on both sides of the horse. These usually are caused when a tiny blood vessel ruptures when the horse is hot and the pressure and weight of the rider and saddle is suddenly removed. A prevention is to keep the saddle loosely girthed while the horse cools off. The weight of the saddle will prevent the rapid expansion and rupture of these vessels.
