How do you ensure that the saddle tree fits the horse?
This is our number one priority. There are a number of different ways that we can do this. First, you can bend a wire over the horse's withers. Next, trace the wire outline onto a paper. Then, mail the paper to us.
The second way is to bring the horse to the Frecker's Saddlery, and we will do the measuring. Third, there is a form you can buy that when heated will form to the shape of your horse. We can then use the form to get the necessary measurements. Please email or contact us for more information.
Is a wire tracing necessary to have before ordering or buying a saddle?
In most cases no. The trees are made to fit the breed of horse. All horses backs change from year to year and season to season, but if there is a question, send in a wire tacing and have peace of mind knowing the saddle will fit.
