About Terry-Saddle fitting since 2011

 

 

Here are just a few of the signs of poor saddle fit:

  • Hock, stifle & back soreness
  • Kissing spines and bumps
  • Muscle atrophy
  • White hair & rubs
  • Poor posture like high withers, bulging shoulders & large shoulder holes
  • Behavior issues like biting, girthiness, bucking or bolting
  • Performance issues like wrong leads, short strides & lack of engagement
  • Unexplained lameness
  • Rider's hip, back & knee pain

Good saddle fit:

  • Prevents needless pain, suffering & possible permanent damage to horse and rider
  • Saves time & money spent on lessons, training & vet bills
  • Allows horse & rider to enjoy the ride & comfortably become one

 

  Your saddle fit should be checked every 6-12 months.  Since our horses change very gradually, we usually don't notice when they are off until we refit.  Horses change shape due to age, conditioning, training, nutrition and seasons.  If you buy a saddle that fits really well today and it cannot be adjusted, you might be saddle shopping again really soon.  So that the saddle can continue to fit as the horse develops or if you change horses, I only offer for sale saddles that are adjustable.

  These are the manufacturers that I proudly represent.  Each is special in their own way.  

Specialized Saddles- adjustable trail & endurance saddles

TW Saddlery- adjustable trail & western performance saddles

Peter Horobin-adjustable trail, dressage, jump & endurance saddles

Here are some of their testimonials.

 I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to help the horses and I thank you for being concerned about your horse's comfort."
