You might identity with this person who wrote about saddle fit on a message board on the internet: "My gelding is very “stocky” my current saddle is too narrow, I think that’s why he doesn’t like to bend and do circles. I’ve tried several saddles that I borrowed from others, and even bought a new one thinking it would work, full quarter horse with 7″ gullet. It was better but still restricting. I don’t want to keep making mistakes, how do I get it right ..."

"I learned so much from having my horses measured and fitted properly. I knew there was something not right about the saddle I was riding my mare with. I took the information I learned and the information I knew and I am on the perfect saddle search. After learning my saddle is too narrow for my horse, I borrowed my friend's wide tree saddle and the results have been nothing short of miraculous. The small white spot that had developed on her shoulder is gone. The high speed rush down the trail with a fidgeting high headed horse has become a thing of the past. Now we meander. The head drops, the lips smack, the horse is relaxed. The difference is undeniable and my friends will ride with me again. Saddle fit matters."   Dena Wollpert

What can you expect? 3 easy steps ... 

Step 1) Education - Learn to evaluate your saddle (Western or English) to determine if it's right for your horse. You'll get a simple checklist that can be used on your current saddle.  This checklist comes in handy when asking a seller questions if you are purchasing a new or used saddle too. Explore saddle padding options and understand the application of saddle fit research.

Step 2) Apply Saddle Fit Principles to your Horse - Hands on measurements to determine what your particular horse requires (gullet width, rocker, drop of back, saddle channel width and what you need for saddle balance). Create a tracing of your horse to take anywhere to test a saddle before purchasing it. We'll use chalk drawings on your horse, evaluate his/her saddle conformation, and check your current saddle on your current horse.

Step 3) Practical hands-on demonstration and experience with exercises to treat and prevent saddle related body soreness in your horse. 

"I've done the fitting clinic and it is all about math/science . Nothing left to interpretation. Becky helps with solutions, should your saddle not be a good fit. She helped me with both of my horses." Sally M

Create a caring and education based partnership with your horse.  Saddle Fit Simplified is entirely based on three very simple principles: 1) a saddle needs to match the anatomy of the horse as close as possible, 2) a saddle should not interfere with the anatomy of the horse, and 3) saddle padding provides approximately one-inch of cushion to relieve pressure points and accommodate the horse's movement under the saddle.

A saddle that fits comfortably builds trust and confidence, performance and health. The costs of an ill-fitting saddle are horse lameness, vet and chiropractic bills, pain behavior misidentified as a training problem, increased costs of training, fear of riding, liability issues when sharing your horse with others, loss of riding time, and stress build up for you.  Saddle misfit costs you money and it strains your relationship with your horse. 

"It was great learning from you, Becky. I knew a lot about saddle fit, but your Saddle Fit Simplified provided more details and solutions. I'm excited to use the process on all of my horses to perfect our saddle fit and their comfort. Thank you!!"   Andrea Chirich, Centered Riding Instructor
