SADDLES THAT FIT FOR GAITED or TROTTING MULES, DONKEYS, HORSES and PONYS
We build performance and pleasure endurance, trail, and western saddles that fit smaller hard to fit breeds such as the Paso Fino all the way to the large flat backed draft. Saddles by Henry Miller and TBM saddles built by R.W. Bowman of Tennessee. Wickett and Craig leather, Steele tree offerings, modern technology. Lightweight, close contact, ergonomically correct & balanced.
Steele Tree Company provides us with their "Fit to be Seen" tree system, providing dozens of different tree fits. We send you out several molds, you try them on and the two of us will decide what's best for our animal.
FIT ABILITY: we have designed a system that is easy to use, easy to see, and easy to understand. The "Fit-Ability" system easily changes the width, rock, and flare for horses and mules. Build a saddle that has generous fit and the ability to change the fit as the animal changes, or your second, third, fourth equine, add the FitAbility system, and you have great fit. *** NOTE: While pads cannot correct everything such as a tree that is too narrow, they can help to balance and fill voids where there is no contact, lift or compensate for asymmetries. You still have to start with good fit.
EQUIMapping Saddle Fit Evaluation and Correction: a thorough diagnostic evaluation of your animal, pad, saddle, and rider. Saddle fit is about all of that together. If is almost never just the saddle. We have a high success rate for correction on all types of saddles, although treed is our specialty because it is very hard to determine fit. It's NOT about sweat marks! Call for an appointment or clinic, or group fitting at your barn.
