    It's surprising how may riders don't take saddle fit into consideration.

    Taking a saddle template

    Hi there,

    Since we are selling saddles and cannot reach all our customers personally we created some videos on taking templates and what to look for when fitting the saddle also to the rider which might be useful for everybody.

    The Western saddles; Billy Cook, Circle Y , Tucker & used western trail saddles have on line tools to measure your horse for a saddle. I think Tucker also offer the same info on line.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. If you took her to a pro and he/she made a saddle to fit, is there still a problem?

    This is another good idea to the wither tracing. You do a full back tracing. I did this then created a cardboad layout of her back and kept it in my car when I went saddle hunting. It worked great. How to Build a Back Map for saddle fitting
