New Saddle fittings

Ready to shop for your newest saddle? Congratulations! We know saddle shopping is sometimes difficult and we strive to make the experience as easy and fun as possible.

saddle fitting notes:

In order to provide you with a no-pressure sales experience, and to provide you with saddles at the best possible prices, we charge travel and fitting fees which can be credited towards the purchase of a new saddle.

We may request pictures of your horse before your fitting. Pictures should be taken on a level surface, with good lighting, with your horse standing as square as possible. You should include one picture from each side and one taken from the croup, facing the horse’s head.

Please help us maximize your time by having your horse groomed and ready prior to our scheduled arrival. After a back exam and template, we will do our “saddle parade” to see what saddles fit the horse before you have the opportunity to ride in as many saddles as possible. If you work with a trainer, they should be available to watch your ride after the first hour of your appointment.

Fittings typically take two hours, so please plan accordingly.

Templates serve as an objective measurement of a horse’s development over time

Saddle Checks

Horses change shape throughout the year and over the course of their lifetime. We recommend saddles be checked at least every six months to ensure the proper fit as your horse gains or loses conditioning and the saddle wears with normal use.


Saddle checks usually take about 45 minutes, but can run longer.

Saddle checks include a back template and exam, which are kept on file to monitor ongoing changes to your horse’s shape and condition. We then look at each saddle used on that horse and, if needed, will make recommendations to improve the fit for horse and/or rider.

As with fittings, we charge a saddle check fee and barn call fee, so it’s always great to combine trips to your barn with a friend (or several).
