At The Cheshire Horse, we take pride in assisting our customers to select a properly fitting saddle for their horse. A saddle that fits both horse and rider well will result in improved performance under saddle while eliminating painful pressure points and pinching. In addition to our extensive selection of new saddles and used saddles on consignment, we also carry a wide array of saddle fitting supplies and accessories.
Many of the close contact saddles, all-purpose saddles, and dressage saddles that we carry, from brands such as Bates Saddlery, Wintec, Arena Saddles, Pessoa, and Tekna, showcase an interchangeable gullet system. This allows you to customize the tree of your saddle to fit your individual horse. We carry convenient gullet measurement systems that make it easy to determine the proper gullet size for your horse. Once you have taken your horse’s measurements, shop our wide array of saddle gullets that range in size from extra narrow to extra wide. From thoroughbreds to draft horses, we can help you fit every horse in your barn.
Riser pads and pommel panels allow you to adjust your saddle to accommodate your horse’s unique shape. By utilizing these saddle fit panels, you can provide your horse with a custom fit. We carry saddle fit pads from Wintec that are designed to slip right into your saddle’s panels for the utmost convenience and ease when tacking up your horse.
With the right tools and knowledge, you can provide your horse with the comfort and protection of a properly fitting saddle. If you have any questions about the saddle fitting aids that we carry or would like assistance choosing the best saddle gullet for your horse, we invite you to speak to a member of our friendly and highly-trained sales staff. For our local customers, we are pleased to offer professional saddle fitting services. We urge you to contact us today to set up your saddle fit appointment.
