Why use a saddle fitter?

As riders, we bear the responsibility to keep our horses sound and happy in their work.  A saddle that is well-fitted to you and your horse offers comfort, freedom, and stability by evenly balancing the rider’s weight over the horse’s back. It will support and encourage a proper riding position and clear communication.


A poorly fitting saddle can negatively affect performance and behaviour, as well as cause serious injury to the horse’s back and shoulders.  It can also negatively impact the rider’s position and cause discomfort to their bodies as well. 


The physiology of both equine and human athletes interacting with any saddle changes over time.  These changes occur due to a myriad of factors that range from maturity, fitness levels, injuries, to illnesses.  To maintain the health of both partners, it is important to have MacLean Equestrian Company evaluate your saddle on at least an annual basis.
