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

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

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.

Aside from taking your horse to the tack shop or having a pro come out to fit him/her, how do you find the right fit without taking saddles home to try 6 or 7 times?

The method I recommend is this:



How do you do it?
We did take her to a pro, so whats the next step. And he made a new saddle for us.

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?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

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
