Ok I have read 6 pages...and my eye balls hurt...stupid cold! Do these videos apply to leather/tree western saddles? Looking into buying my first official saddle of my very own, and I am feeling over whelmed with brand, size, inches, centimeters oh my! I want to make sure my saddle fits.

These are great videos! I just found out that one of the saddles I own is a perfect fit for my friends horse!

We had a Schleese fitter give a lecture at our barn. I was almost in tears afterwards when I realized how horrible the saddle I had fit my mare. I was able to find a used Schleese and our fitter come to our barn twice a year. The seat is kinda hard on my saddle, not so comfy for me but I'll deal so long as my horse is comfortable. Wish I could afford a new one.

What amazing videos! I thank you so much for posting them! Although now I am kind of worried about seeing how my saddle fits my mare!

Rascal is almost ready for riding, last eval in July. These are a tremendous help!! I am stressing about the possible sore back issues with an ill fitting saddle. We have enough problems as it is LOL.

Today I started thinking about the fit of our saddles then I started thinking about all the new kind of saddle pads there are and began woundering if some of these pads are making some of the saddles to fit incorrectly, and maybe because of this the pads are actualy rubbing sores and not the saddles. We had to go through a number of pads to find one just to fit Toby. Years ago we just used a heavy rug or a good blanket and never had problems with our horses backs and used a variety of saddles.

I actually watched these a while back and found out my saddle was not fitting my mare correctly. Very glad I found out before her back got sore!

Great videos, glad you posted :)
