Which size to choose?
Make sure that your horse stands balanced on all feet on a smooth, level floor. When the saddle is positioned correctly on the horse´s back, and the girth is tightened, place your hand sideways (not flat), under the pommel and see if there’s enough clearance over the horse’s withers. If your hand does not fit sideways under the pommel, pressure on the withers will cause pinching and distress to the horse.
Slide your flat hand under the front of the saddle (from the pommel downwards), to feel for pressure points on the trapezius area, which will cause pinching and limit blood circulation.
The front part of the saddle tree and the points must be at a similar angle as the trapezius area upon which they will rest (tolerance of max 10 degrees).
Narrow (pink) = 76° angle / 27 cm between points (end of saddletree)*
Medium (purple) = 78° angle / 28 cm between points
Medium wide (orange) = 81,5° angle / 29 cm between points
Wide (green) = 86° angle / 30 cm between points
Extra wide (grey) = 91° angle / 31 cm between points
Extra extra wide (white) = 94° angle / 32 cm between points
*please note that measurements between points on saddle trees can vary between every saddlemaker. Two saddles from two different saddlemakers that are measured 30cm between points, do not necessarily have the same tree width (angle).
