1 Your Horse is lucky to have you invest your time to understand how saddles work. We're thrilled to share our 20 years of comprehensive research for your benefit. Here is our promise: it will pay off for both of you! You're about to discover the #1 reason why most saddles don't allow Horses to move freely. You'll learn why 2 persistent MYTHS ARE WORTH BUSTING. You'll understand why saddles you've been trying so far did not work...and you'll be empowered to do something about it! The confidence you'll gain through this process will make assessing saddle fit simple and straight forward. You will be able to custom tailor to the needs of YOUR individual HORSE! Plus, our team is highly skilled and always happy to help you! Natural Horseman Saddles, All rights reserved.

2 Are you aware your Horse s back lifts and expands horizontally as soon as he starts moving? This is the #1 reason most saddles don t fit: They simply don t have enough room to accommodate a DYNAMIC Horse body shape in motion. Even "custom tailored" saddles are built to fit the Horse's STATIC standing still shape. Effective MANAGEMENT OF THE INTERFACE between your saddle and your Horse s back is an essential component of good saddle fit. Shims facilitate this FIRST LINK between your Horse's body, your saddle and yourself. They help a "too tight" saddle and balance a good saddle even better. We ll educate you about why and where to put shims. The results will show in enhanced performance and relationship. Natural Horseman Saddles, All rights reserved.

3 There's an easy way to find out how far your Horse's shoulder blade moves back during forward or backward movement. There's also a simple way to simulate how significantly your Horse's back lifts in motion: Your horse's shoulder blade (scapula) is a paddle-shaped bone connected to the upper leg bone. Powerful muscles engage to pull it backward in full stride. If this apparatus is restricted by saddle/rider pressure, the results include pain, alteration of the horse's natural way-ofgoing and can result in serious damage. It is important for you to know how to locate the back edge of your Horse's shoulder blade. Trace the shoulder gently with your fingertips to feel the depression that marks the edge of the shoulder "at rest". Gently lift the leg by the knee and lead it forward to pinpoint the new position of the shoulder blade: now further back but still indicated by a depression that is easy to feel or see. It might be useful to have a friend help you but it can easily be done alone. From the moment the first step is taken, a horse s body becomes a totally new set of shapes: engaging muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia to create movement. The vertical lift between wither and croup should be significant. By firmly tickling a horse s belly under the midline, you can observe the natural lifting potential of the back and visualize how much room your saddle should allow. You may want to use some chalk to mark the 2 locations and step back to take a look. When you see how far the shoulder moves back while your Horse travels (compared to when he is standing still) it helps you understand what it takes for your Horse s stride to be unrestricted. Natural Horseman Saddles, All All rights rights reserved. reserved The SCAPULA is actually a very large bone and needs lots of room to swing!

7 At the wither right where you locate the back edge of the shoulder blade while your Horse is standing still and square. At the back edge of where your Horse s shoulder blade swings when the leg is extended in stride per description on page 3 (pulling knee forward) Just behind the spot on your Horse s back where you would sit in your saddle. Note: This is likely not the same place where you would sit while riding bareback. Further back from that would be better. *A "Flexicurve is a flexible ruler, a handy tool to keep track of your Horse s topline changes. You are welcome to purchase one from us or supply your own. Natural Natural Horseman Horseman Saddles, All All rights reserved.

8 Using a measuring tape or long ruler, find the place down from the top of the arc where the horizontal span measures 14" (35.5 cm). DRAW A HORIZONTAL LINE AT THAT LOCATION. Measure down from the highest point of the *Flexicurve arc to the horizontal line and record that VERTICAL MEASUREMENT. NOTE: This is the most important measurement we have discovered is key to your Horse feeling great under your saddle. Why? Because if your Horse is WIDE at spot C yet narrow behind the shoulder blade, the muscles at A & B will likely re-develop if they are allowed to expand unrestrictedly in the future. Fitting the C measurement best at first facilitates this. 14" (35,5 cm) 14" (35,5 cm) 14" (35,5 cm) If your vertical measurement of A is 6" (15,2 cm) or more the shoulder is likely suited for our Standard (STD) wide gullet. Note: we devised this system of measurement and offer these suggestions based on our "law of averages" after measuring hundreds of horses through the years and recording data noting which size saddles rendered them most biomechanically efficient and comfortable Natural Horseman Saddles, All rights reserved If your vertical measurement of B is 5 1/4" (13,2 cm) or more the shoulder and back shape are likely suited for our Standard (STD) wide gullet. If your vertical measurement of C is 2-3/4" (7cm) or more, your Horse is suited for our Standard (STD) wide gullet. If the measurement is 2-1/8" (5.4cm) or less, your Horse will likely be most happy in our Superwide (SW) gullet. Natural Horseman Saddles, All rights reserved.
