Saddle Pad and Dust Patterns

By Jochen Schleese|July 1st, 2014

What your saddle pad looks like after you ride can tell you a lot about its fit. In order to get an optimal sweat/ dust pattern, we suggest you first place a simple, thin white cotton pad under your saddle with a light smattering of “dirt” on your horse’s back. Then, ride your horse at all three gaits (walk/trot/canter) in both directions, in 20-meter circles for about two minutes each. Take your saddle off with the pad and look at both the horse’s sweat pattern, and the dust pattern left on your pad.

Testimonials

I wanted to thank you again for going above and beyond at my saddle fitting appointment. That was a truly kind and generous thing for you to do and I can’t thank you enough. I am truly feeling lucky and my horse is equally so. I am sure your dedication and commitment to the highest standards will make a lasting impression. I remain forever grateful to you.
