How to fit a DP Saddle
Pre & Post Purchase

We are here to assist you with fitting your saddle via email and photos if you do not have an independent saddle fitter in your area. Our ability to assist  you accurately is highly dependent on the photos you provide to us. Please ensure that no strong shadows are being cast on your horse but make sure you are in good light, an overcast day is ideal. Please see example photos below. Click on the photos for more instructions. Please note these are not always examples of good or bad saddle fit, they are purely meant to be used as a "photo taking" guide, so you can send us good usable photos for saddle fit assessment.

When sending us photos of your horse, please ensure that your horse is standing square, on level ground, with head and neck in a neutral position (not grazing and not too high). Side-on photos are most helpful, ensuring whole horse nose to tail is in frame. Other angles shown below are also worth sending. Taking photos on an over-cast day is often best as no sharp shadows are being cast around the saddle. Girth up your saddle with no saddle pad underneath. Please see sample photos below:
Important information for your saddle fitter
Unlike most English type saddles, the panels on our Baroque and Quantum saddles are attached to the underside of the tree via screws and screw-in rings only, allowing the panels to be completely removed as shown below. This makes for super easy access to the flocking by your saddle fitter.
The photo below shows the slits that are pre-cut which allow for easy flocking access.
