Will the Saddle Fit

Will the Saddle that I Buy Fit Me?

 

This is a very good question! Please look at our explanation to help guide you on proper saddle fit.

 

Measure seat size When purchasing a jumping saddle (even if you are riding on the flat only) it is the distance between the natural center of the seat and the leg support that allows you to post (or jump a fence) and come back down into the natural center of the seat.
Measure nail head down 8 inches
Length of stirrup plays an important roll in fitting a saddle.  If you are more comfortable with a longer leg position you will need a saddle with a straighter flap.
Measure 8" down from the center of the nail head.
Measure from flap to center of cantle Riders with a longer thigh will need this distance to be greater when riding with a shorter stirrup. If you are a rider jumping larger fences you will probably be riding with a more closed hip angle and a shorter stirrup.       From the above measurement, 8" down from the center of the nail head in the seat size that is correct for you measure the distance to the center of the cantle.
Measure flap length Riders with a longer thigh will need this distance to be longer when riding with a longer stirrup. The length of the flap is measured from the bottom of the nail head.  At the posting trot or over a fence.  If your saddle distance is too small from the natural center to the leg support you will sit too close to the cantle.  If the distance is too long you will sit on the pommel.
