There are three ways you can send us your saddle fitting information so we can choose your tree: using the EQUIMeasure Mold - equimapping, sending us a set of specific back tracings, or borrowing our Saddle Gauge.
To do a set of specific back tracings requires a few simple things: a felt marker, six file folders or cardboard, a flex ruler or 18" of Romax wire, and a helper. You mail me the cardboard and email me photos and videos. Click below for downloadable instructions on doing a set of tracings of your animals back.
You rent this tool and we ship it to you. The rental is $165 plus $20 to mail each direction. You receive $155 as a credit toward your saddle upon the return of the Saddle Gauge. It is a bendable, hard plastic tool that lays on your animal's back in a specific location. Both the topline and each "paddle" move, and there are numbers on the plastic that you record and send to me. Download Instructions Below.
The EQUIMeasure Mold is purchased from the web and includes a video on how to use their product. I suggest you watch the video several times before starting. It does require an oven within close proximity to where your animal will be standing. When completed, mail me the cooled rigid 3d mold. Note: you have three tries per kit. Be sure your mold is thoroughly cooled down and try it on a few times before you send it to make sure it has not changed. You'll mail me the mold and email photos and videos. EQUIMeasure.com
