DIFFERENT HORSE SHAPES

The saddle fitting is a really complex matter. We recommend that an experienced technician does this.

REGULAR HORSE’S BACK HORSE WITH HIGH HIND-QUARTERS FLAT BACKED HORSE DIPPED BACK HORSE HORSE WITH LOW BACK

When looked at upright from behind, horse are normally symmetrical between the left and right flanks. On a well-developed back and a medium-high whiter, the saddle tends to settle into the correct position on its own, even when positioned too far forward or behind. In this "ideal" situation, there is no need for any adjustment.

The panels would normally be placed on the horse's back and the middle tunnel would allow the horse's spine to move freely. In most cases a medium-sized wither lets the horse take up a correct position on the head-shoulder-pelvis-knee-foot axis.
In horses with high hind-quarters the saddle tends to slide forward behind the withers, the rider is pushed forward with there leg and foot slipping backwards. Alignment of the saddle must be corrected by modification on the form of panels, thereby restoring the correct postion of the rider.
For horses with flat backs instead of presenting the classic longitudinal bending down is flat with muscles almost horizontal. The saddle will tend to assume a movement forward/backward therefore causing the rider to be unbalanced. The structure of the saddle must be modified by modification of the panel to compensate.
The horse’s back is dipped between the withers and the hind-quarters probably due to the shape of the spine or to the weakness of the muscles. The saddle will tend to create pressure on the front or the back with little contact through the centre making the riders weight difficult to distribute equally the structure of the saddle must be modified by modification of panels to compensate.
In horses with low back saddle will tend to slide back towards to hind-quarters, making the rider unbalanced. Alignment of the saddle must be modified by modification to the panels to compensate, thereby restoring the rider to the correct postion.
TECNICALS
WITHERS’S MEASUREMENT With the horse upright put pressure on the shoulder until you identify the final part of the shoulder blade, and draw it with the pen wax. Another method is to have someone leading your horse while you walk to the side with your hand on withers, the horse will rotate the blade around its axis and will allow you to view the exact location on the same, the other method is to lift a front leg and push it forward. Draw a mark on the back which is around 4 fingers on the position of the scapula, this space is necessary because while moving the scapula rotates and moves back 4-5 inches.
WITHERS’S MEASUREMENT
BACK’S MEASURING - 1 Aline the flexible bar to the horse’s back by matching the first point with the line previously marked, and draw the other 4 notches. Now scored on the paper measures the profile obtained by joining the flexible bar, and indication 5 points.
BACK’S MEASURING - 1
BACK’S MEASURING - 2 For each notch marked on the back of the horse take the transverse profile by joining the flexible bar and reported the 5 profiles on the paper measures.
BACK’S MEASURING - 2
BACK’S MEASURING - 3 Place the level on the back of the horse and put it in bubble, now listed on the paper measures the exact position found on the flexible bar.

SUMMARY OF NECESSARY MEASUREMENTS
customize-summary
Last to score name of the horse, the breed and any peculiarities. With the information thus obtained a suitable qualified and experienced can: 1 – define the measure of the arc of the withers by comparing the dimensions A and B of the first arc with THE TABLE; 2 – define the shape of the panels interpreting the information that comes from the position of the bubble; 3 – for particularly complex shapes in laboratory reconstruct the shape of the back and verify the exact construction of the saddle.
