Aitken's Saddle Fitting

make the right choice

There are hundreds if not thousands of different saddles, each slightly different in design and performance. Which is why it is so important to get the right advice when choosing a saddle. It’s always recommended that you seek the advice of a Society of Master Saddlers qualified saddle fitter before you purchase a saddle. They will use their experience and knowledge to give the right advice and make the correct adjustments to ensure the best fit for both you and your horse. 


It is also recommended to have the fit of a saddle checked on a regular basis. A horse is a living animal and its back will continue to change and develop according to its age, feed, training, and health. These changes can affect the fit of your saddle and minor alterations are needed to maintain an optimal fit.

Our saddle fitters are always available to offer advice. Either call or send us an email with a few pictures and a description of what is happening and our fitters will be able to give you free advice.

All photos should be taken on flat ground, with your horse standing square, and try to keep the horses head up.
