Whether our horses are kept for pleasure riding or to perform as top class athletes it is essential to maintain correct fit and balance of our saddles. The main aim of providing a saddle-fitting service is to allow the horse to be able to work correctly and comfortably in a pain free and therefore willing manner. A correctly fitting saddle will help to maximise the horses’ performance, and to ensure the comfort of both horse and rider and their combined success.
You may notice deterioration in your horse’s performance despite no clinical signs. Your horse may be misbehaving whilst being tacked up or during ridden work. He may “hollow” through the back and not engage the hind quarters or show evasion through transitions. This can be due to other issues but the fit of the saddle should always be checked out.
It is essential for the saddle fitter to carry out regular checks on your saddle. This may be necessary to re balance the saddle as the flocking may have settled or the horse may have changed shape and condition. There are also a large number of horses, like us, that are asymmetrical which needs to be taken into consideration when fitting a saddle.
Europa’s experienced saddle fitter will travel to your stables or yard for all your saddle-fitting requirements including adjustments, gullet changes, re-flocking and re balancing which can all generally be done on site.
