    Saddle help(ASAP)

    OK, so I'm going to buy a new saddle Abby and I don't know what size to get her. Since I'm in AZ and she's in AL, I'm getting my cousin to measure her for me. I don't even know how to measure! Lol So do any of you have any good instructions for my cousin?? I looked it up on google and it for everything you need a flexy wire thing of whatever? HELP please!! ASAP!!


    THANKS!

    English or Western and what type of riding do you do?

    In any case, concerning the flex wire, what I have used is two pieces of 2 1/2' of 12 or 14 gauge house wire that you can get at any hardware store. Bend it over his withers to his shape and the second one over the center of his back where the saddle will sit. Carefully remove the wire and trace it on a piece of heavy cardboard. Cut out the cardboard on the traced line and take it to a tack shop to measure against a saddle.

    I've successfully done that when it was impossible to take the horse with me.

    Next is to determine the seat size for you.

    Good luck with finding a saddle!

    I understand that but your cousin can sent you the cardboard cut outs.

    YOu could easily put it on some poster type paper fold it up small enough to get it in a legal size envelope and mail it. Much easier than trying to get a horse into one of those little mail slots. And you won't get near the complaints from the mailman.
