It’s hard to know how to fix something, if you don’t understand it. If you are unsure about how your saddle is fitting, the best place to start is our On-Site Assessment. The assessment includes an overview of saddle construction, saddle fit theory, a specific analysis of your horse’s conformational needs, and our step by step tutorial designed to allow you to understand every step of your saddle’s fit. From here, you have all the information you need to make a decision for yourself, instead of just relying on someone else.
Saddle shopping can be overwhelming. There are so many options, and even worse, so many opinions. If you aren’t sure where to start, consider a Saddle Assessment. This will explain the main elements of saddle fit and let you know exactly what aspects your horse needs. If you have any saddles you’re curious about, we can assess them for you during your appointment.
If you’d like to see what we have available, you can look at our New Saddles to see what we have in stock, these saddles are all available for custom order and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colours and fit options. You can also check out our Used Saddles for a great bargain.
Many modern saddles can be adjusted. What is usually less understood, is what type of adjustments are possible and how they actually affect the fit of the saddle for your horse. An On-Site Reflocking can adjust the wool panel to better suit your horse’s shape as well as maintain any natural compression. A Width Adjustment addresses the angle of the tree points and is helpful if your saddle is too wide or too narrow.
If you think your saddle might need adjustment, but aren’t sure, a Saddle Assessment can tell you what saddle adjustments might work for you.
This of course, all depends on your horses. However, certain saddle aspects are more readily adaptable to different horses, and sometimes we can make adjustments, so that it can be used on more than one horse.
The best way to start is to book a Saddle Assessment and see how your saddle fits your different horses.
