You've decided to buy a horse, and now you're looking for the perfect horse saddle. You've heard that western saddles are better than English ones, but how do you know which one is right for your horse? There are lots of factors to consider when choosing a saddle for your equine friend, but here's what we recommend:
Finding the right Saddle for your Horse
The first step in finding the right saddle is to decide what you want your horse to do. If you have an English or Western saddle, then it's important to understand how these different styles work and fit.
If you have an English/Western saddle, then it will either be:
A straight-back full tree seat with a horn on top that hangs down over the horse's withers (the top of its shoulder) and connects with a girth that goes around their chest area. This type of seat can be adjusted by moving it up or down depending on where the rider needs extra room for movement while riding; however there may be some restrictions depending on which type of leather used for making this part up!
An open ring seat with no horn attached anywhere else but still able to hang down low over their withers so they don't get cramped if they're not sitting directly under me when I'm standing up straight behind them while riding!
Sizing your Horse
To begin, measure your horse's girth by placing it across the shoulders of the animal and measuring from left to right. Then wrap a tape measure around its chest at the point where it crosses over its abdomen. The measurement should be made with both hands wrapped around as close together as possible and no slack in the middle or at either end of your measuring device (the girth).
Next, measure your saddle using this same method: lay down on top of it while keeping its shape intact; then wrap a piece of paper around one side so that it will fit snugly over your backside without slipping off during riding time. Now compare these two numbers! If they are different by more than 2 inches do not buy this particular saddle because there is no guarantee about how comfortable it will fit once mounted up inside our bodies.
Materials and Features
The tree of the horse saddles is its strongest part, as it supports all other components. The tree should be made out of leather or other strong material that can withstand years of wear and tear. When shopping for your saddle trees, keep in mind what kind of materials are used to make them: if they're made from wood then they may not last as long as if they were made from metal or plastic (which is more durable). Make sure that the material used is durable enough to withstand daily use without breaking down over time.
Begin with a "T" shaped tree.
The "T" shaped tree is the most common type of tree, and it's also one of the most versatile. It can be used in any position on a horse's back, as well as on your own shoulders or neck. The "T" shaped tree is comfortable, stable and durable--all things that you want when designing western saddle for horses!

Saddles are one of the most important pieces of equine equipment and need to be considered carefully. Saddle makers have been making saddles for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. They know what works and what doesn't work when it comes to making good saddles for your horse. If you want your horse to get the best results from their new saddle then it's important that you understand how these pieces fit together as well as how they should be sized correctly so that they can provide maximum comfort for both rider and animal alike!
