Thank you so much for posting these videos, I found them very helpful. Its so important to have a correct fitting saddle. I know from experience that a saddle that doesn't fit causes more problems than it is worth for both horse and rider.

Thank you again for posting! :)

Wow! Thank you for posting these. I watched them as my mother and brother went to the store for supplies to make dinner. I found these videos to be extremely helpful to me since I'm a newer member to the world of horses. Thanks again!

Thank you SOOOO much for these videos! I can't afford a saddle fitter so these videos will be extremely helpful in making sure my saddle fits my horse (: She's young and in training so I don't want to mess everything up by having an improperly fitting saddle! Again, thank you!

Loved the videos, just got another saddle cause I figured mine didn't fit my girl, she has a flat back and is ok bareback but has been cowkicking me when I try to saddle her. I'm afraid to take out new saddle to fit now though, glad I bought an old one just to ride out in the brush. Any suggestions on a good saddle for a flat-backed arab?

Use a reputable fitter :)
Our fitter charges $25 per horse. He will make forms for you to take to the tack shop so that you don't have to drag every saddle home that *might* fit.

He is also a saddle maker and does leather repair.

That was fascinating! I knew some of the steps, as my Dressage coach showed me how to fit my saddle when I was buying a new one for my Arab mare, but it certainly didn't involve all those steps! I have a feeling we may all be saddleless by the end of the day.

Those videos were great, i'm going to have to see how Bella's saddle actually fits her, I just got her the wintec pro dressage and it seems like a great fit, but now I really know what to look for. Does anyone have any videos on fitting western saddles? I just started working with my appaloosa gelding, Legacy, I was using Blue's old saddle on him, but I can tell it's too narrow because it slides down his back, we don't have any saddle fitters near us(closest it horseloverz.com retail store in hazleton Pa, and that's an hour away and I don't have a horse trailer) So if anyone has any tips it would be greatly appreciated, I used Bella's gullet measuring thing for her wintec saddle and it says he would need a wide(white) plate, but what does that width translate to in western?
