Making our horse comfortable is our primary aim.
Horses are born with their own natural movement.
Some are well conformed, and move very well, whilst others show less ability.
Some are comfortable to ride, others more bouncy, and they all have individual minds.
One thing is for sure and certain – horses can move more freely without a rider on their back.
To give you an idea of what it is like for a horse, imagine yourself walking or jogging, and then placing a child that bounces and wriggles on your shoulders and try walking or jogging again.
The child’s movements tend to pull us off balance.
Similarly, our riding position and ability plays an important part in the freedom of our horse’s movement.
There are more and more manufacturers and designers working towards products to help our equine friends, including saddlecloths, bits, girths and saddles.
The more comfortable these products are the better association we will have our horse.
Saddle fitting not only involves the correct fit for the horse but more importantly the correct shape and balance to enable us to ride at the best of our ability.
A poor fitting or out of balance saddle doesn’t hurt a horse until we add our weight and ride in it.
Keeping all this in mind, it is important when you employ someone to check your horse and saddle for fit is that they have a great deal of knowledge on the subject.
The first principles of saddle fitting are commonsense, if it looks and feels wrong it probably is.
However understanding the effects of a badly fitting saddle and making the necessary changes comes from experience.
This experience comes from years and years of working with horses, saddles and riders of all different shapes and making mistakes and corrections in the process.
Remember this profound statement; “The amount of experience you have depends on how many mistakes you have made and how quickly you identify them”.
Gary Johnson of Saddles Plus has over 20 years experience in saddle fitting and designing.
Saddles they have designed include; Icon Show Saddle, KN Melodie, Rhapsodie and Concerto, Prestige Verona and the entire Riviera range.
Presently they are working on more saddle designs, and have pioneered the design of pressure-eze girths.
We are continually promoting research and development to improve products and make our equine companions more comfortable so they can become more willing partners. BOOKING A SADDLE FIT Organising a saddle fit or demonstrator saddle is as easy as…….
