Every 6 months to a year is the protocal for having a Saddle Maker/Fitter come out and assess your horse and your saddle Kitten - it is always wise to make sure your saddle fits properly, because horses change on a regular basis...and you may cause the saddle to sit incorrectly due to crookedness and etc, etc.
It depends on if you get a Saddle Maker or a Saddle Fitter, the Saddle Maker can make adjustments to your saddle, but SaddleBag is incorrect in assuming that Saddle Fitters can only tell you whether a saddle is narrow or large or what you need - because a good one, will tell you that the saddle needs flocking, knows what shape of tree you need, and etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, - there is TONS to do with saddle fitting, that the majority of the educated one's know.
It's a load of whooie that Saddle Fitters can only tell you if you need a wide or narrow.
