Getting a saddle to fit properly is frustrating but hugely important to the comfort, health and performance of your horse. Some people opt to get adjustable trees, but are they worth it?
In this episode of Ask the Saddle Fitter, Kate Ballard, Professional Saddle Fitter and member of the Society of Master Saddlers, answers a viewer question regarding the benefits and drawbacks of saddles with adjustable trees. She talks about who might benefit from an adjustable saddle, wool vs foam flocking, the size of American money (you read that right) and what you can do to help it fit across multiple horses.
Make sure you’re doing everything you can to ensure your horse has a properly fitting saddle. Fortunately, SmartPak can help.
