Saddle Fitting Service
OUR QUALIFIED SADDLE FITTER CAN MEET WITH YOU ON PREMISE OR TRAVEL TO YOU
& YOUR HORSE FOR A COMPREHENSIVE UNBIASED FITTING & CONSULTATION.
Although there is a lot of information regarding saddle
fitting on websites, in magazine articles and books (some of it conflicting),
this site does not contain advice on saddle fitting guidelines because most
cases are too individual to conform with generalized principles. Kyrena
Robinson prefers to give personal attention to each case.

The fitting process usually begins at your barn with a thorough assessment of
your horse: his physical characteristics, his level of training, and his way of
Kyrena will carefully evaluate his back for symmetry and for sore spots, and
take tracings that will provide a record of his back shape at rest on that
particular day, and help determine the most suitable tree type, tree width,
panel shape and depth for his back.
In the course of this evaluation, we encourage you to learn as much as
possible about your horse's particular conformation and about the principles of
correct saddle fit. Kyrena sees many horses
through referrals from vets, physiotherapists and chiropractors. Often these are
horses with long term or ongoing problems. These horses need owners, health
professionals, trainers and a saddle fitter who will work together as a team to
maximize their performance and maintain their welfare.
A typical appointment takes about 1 - 2 hours and
includes a notated history of rider, saddle and horse, wither and topline
templates, saddle fit evaluation and riding the horse if applicable.
Horses should be sound and
able to be saddled.
Let us know what type of appointment you need i.e..
evaluation of current saddle or a new saddle, where you are located, how many
horses and saddles will be looked at, how many people are interested (if for
group) and when you would like the appointment. Also a brief history describing
your and your horses needs or problems.
Please request Credentials & Costings from email@example.com
Kyrena Robinson is also available for lectures or
demonstrations to Riding Clubs, Pony Clubs, and other interested associations.
These demonstrations will be designed to enlighten concerned horse owners about
the complexity of saddle fitting and to give them a basic understanding of the
mechanics of a horse working under saddle.
