Correct Saddle Fit

Only a saddle with a perfect fit can ensure that a horse can move optimally and perform at its best. If the saddle does not fit correctly, then the horse is limited in its freedom of movement and may develop painful pressure points.

Important for the perfect saddle-fit is the precise measurement of the horse’s back and the lengthwise line of the spine.

For the measurement you will need a flexible piece of wire (recommended is baling wire, about 2 mm (1/10”) in diameter and 50 cm (20”) long), which lies closely on horse’s back so no space is left between the wire and the horse’s back, and our „Saddle Fitting Guide“, you can download here (pdf, 845 kb).
