custom shim pads
Advanced Equine Saddle Fit began to experiment with making custom shim pads in 2012 simply due to how frustrating it is to find a ready made saddle pad that will solve a specific saddle fit problem. Now, providing a custom shim pad is a regular service we offer. Although we prefer a saddle that perfectly fits your horse, most of us know that it isn't always possible. Sometimes a shim can help your horse be ridden in comfort, while you search for a better saddle, or simply want to wait until your horse quits growing or improves his physical condition before you pay thousands for that perfect saddle. We can sell you a base pad and sew custom shims on it or we can sew custom shims directly to your own saddle pad if it is suitable. As your horse develops his top line, it may be necessary to adjust the shim size and location to match your horse's improving physique just the same as you would need to adjust a saddle for your horse's changing shape.
