Horse and Rider Information

Although treeless saddles are flexible and able to fit many shapes without any alteration, sometimes more is needed. A simple shim can ensure the rider is balanced, which helps them have an effortless and pain-free ride as well as helps the horse develop good musculature from a free-swinging gait and no impediment from a hard tree or a tipped rider.

This is the information useful for me to help you when setting up a demo or purchase.

Rider: height, inseam, upper thigh circumference, weight, seat size in other saddles (note if english or western), riding activity, and if you tend to ride with a long, straight leg, or a shorter, bent knee and hip. Pics of you riding, from the side, are useful as well

Horse: breed, age, height, previous saddle issues. Pics of the horse standing reasonably square on level ground (whole body shot), and if possible to do safely, a pic from behind/above looking down the spine at the shoulders. This can help me determine if we need to account for any asymmetries.
