Saddle fit for the Rider

Saddle fit for the Rider

Saddle Fit for the Rider Gender, as well as anatomy, plays an important role in saddle fit. Men generally have an easier time finding a saddle because saddles have traditionally been built for men. Women may have a conformational disadvantage, but with a saddle that accommodates their anatomy, they can achieve a proper position on…

The BEST SADDLES AND SERVICE EVER!

The BEST SADDLES AND SERVICE EVER!

We really like how you can adjust the saddles so easily to fit just about any horse Also you can replace many parts of the saddle easily. As well as the saddle ages or if I wanted to change the look of the saddle, or make it become newer I can just change out a piece/part. I love the weight of the saddle It’s lighter than my dressage saddle, even so, this makes it easier to put into proper placement on my horse as well as saves my arms Don and I really enjoyed our time with Al and his wife while Al was fixing a loose concho on the saddle Very personable and knowledgeable people The saddles really look fabulous.

Best Lightweight Western Saddle

Best Lightweight Western Saddle

Finding a good lightweight western saddle can be tricky. If you are interested in knowing more about what makes a good lightweight saddle you have landed on the right page. A lightweight western saddle is likely to enhance the saddling-up process for you, thereby giving you a better riding experience. However, not all lightweight weight saddles are created equal

Adjustable Western Saddle to Fit the Rider

Adjustable Western Saddle to Fit the Rider

Riders also come in all shapes and sizes; what works for your friend or your trainer may not work for you. The female sit bones are generally wider than a man’s, big or little booty, lots of natural lower spine curvature or very little, etc, etc. we are all different. Rider fit is very important to your horse; a saddle that doesn’t fit you properly will affect your balance, which will cause the horse to compensate by moving differently.

CUSTOM WESTERN SADDLE TREES

CUSTOM WESTERN SADDLE TREES

Proper western saddle fit becomes more critical the more time a rider spends in a saddle, the longer the ride, and the heavier the load. Minor imperfections in the western saddle tree fit that may have little consequence on a short, once-a-week ride can cause significant soreness after a full hard day in the saddle for both horse and rider.

CARE OF A WESTERN SADDLE

CARE OF A WESTERN SADDLE

Care of a Western Saddle Western saddles are mostly made of vegetable-tanned leather, incredibly durable, eco-friendly, and beautiful leather that improves with age and must be cared for.

Encounter with Panthers

Encounter with Panthers Our Easy Fit  Saddles have been excellent riding the trails at the Ganaraska. Not just comfortable, but I’ve felt secure in it despite a spooky encounter with Panthers, trail bikes and strange-looking plants (or maybe they were just fallen logs).

Saddles for the Hard to Fit Horse

Saddles for the Hard to Fit Horse

Many owners think their horse is very unusual, and it is becoming more common to have trouble finding saddles for hard to fit horses. They have gone from shop to shop and tried several saddles with no success. In general, horses are trending toward wider and shorter backs, and cross-breeding of horses worldwide has created even more shapes. Even though the old timers insist that one saddle will fit all horses, this is undoubtedly not the case. This is similar to you fitting into your brother or sister’s clothes; we are all unique. To compound the problem, there is no industry standard for saddle sizing and limited ways to describe the fit you are looking for.

Many of today’s horse owners do not have a family tradition of handed-down wisdom. This lack of natural horsemanship training has increased the number of horses managed by inexperienced owners.

I’ve been riding regularly for the past couple of months. The saddle is just awesome. People at the barn have commented on the drastic difference in the pony since using it.–saying things like how happy she looks, good she looks. Riding is fun again! Her movement is wonderful now. She can extend her strides and move her shoulders and hips freely–no choppy pony strides, no balking or breaking gait!! There is a difference in her abilities on the one side (because of the past issues from poor fit), but now with the saddle, we can work on correcting it. In other words, with the saddle, I can feel her becoming more balanced. It is so exciting to be able to start working towards the things I know she’s capable of and also to feel that security of a saddle (remember before, I was only able to ride bareback because I could tell she was more comfortable that way, but I wasn’t confident about it!).
Thank you to all who worked on the saddle! Jodi
