Saddle Fit, Simplified



Five things:


First: put the saddle on and you make sure that it's placed in the right place.


Number 1, room over the wither.


Number 2, not pinching in the points.


Number 3, not rocking or "bridging."


Number 4, check to make sure that the paneling in the center is sitting on his back.


Number 5, look through the gullet and make sure you can see air all the way through the gullet and there's no contact being made between the saddle and the back.
