About Our Mobile Saddle Fitting Service
Why is saddle fitting so important?
Saddle fitting plays a pivotal role in the comfort and performance of both rider and horse. Having a well-fitted saddle allows for a better experience and helps to prevent and avoid any long-term saddle related problems. We're dedicated to finding the right fit for your horse by looking at:
- Gullet width
- Even distribution across panels
- Your balance as a rider
Did you know riders put 1½ to 3 times their body weight on a horse's back, blocking blood supply by 60-80%? A balanced rider, proper saddle fit, and comfort pad are essential for a rewarding riding experience.
During your appointment we will explore options depending on your specific needs. Our range of saddles are well designed for both horse and rider comfort. Our dressage saddles offer flocked panels that adapt to your horse's shape, our jump saddles are available with both flocked and foam panels, while our range of western and fender saddles come with fleece, sheepskin, or felt lining, providing shock-absorbing benefits.
Book a consult today, and we will come to you to ensure you find the right saddle to properly fit you and your horse.
