SADDLE FITTING PROCESS IN RODNEY

Integrating saddle fitters into your equine team is vital.

Our specialised saddle fitting process in Rodney follows a comprehensive two-part approach, incorporating both unmounted and ridden assessments. A flat surface is vital, and, if needed, we recommend providing shelter in uncertain weather conditions. Ensure you bring your riding gear and any accessories such as breastplates, half pads, or changeable gullets for the assessment.

PART ONE

Information Gathering

This assessment includes relevant questions and measurements of your horse.

  • We inspect existing saddles or select suitable options for test rides.

  • Accompanying accessories are reviewed for suitability and adjusted as needed to optimise the fit.

  • Ensure you bring them along for inclusion in the assessment.

PART TWO

Ridden Assessment

We'll evaluate your horse's walk, trot, and canter, preferably in a spacious area suitable for a 20m circle.

If you intend to jump in the saddle it is recommended to see it ridden in over a few fences (a bigger space is required with jumps).

This stage might include several mount and dismount sessions to achieve the best balance.

For your safety, appropriate helmet and footwear are essential when riding.

Collaborative Approach

If other equine professionals have noted saddle fit concerns or if your horse has specific health considerations such as Kissing Spine, kindly provide their notes before your appointment. Feel free to include physiotherapists, coaches, or friends during your fitting session

"Still buzzing"

"Still buzzing at the difference in Garry today with the more suitable sized saddle. Appreciate all your help and expertise. Just goes to show the slightest change can make a world of difference. Hence the importance of using an experienced saddle fitter who looks at the whole picture - the holistic overview"

Sue Malley

"Clearly a specialist"

"Very professional and personable. Christine made the whole experience a pleasure. She was clearly a specialist, but also able to share her knowledge with my daughter, her coach, and I - each at different knowledge levels. She never skipped a beat and in addition, our saddle was ready for pickup that same day!"
