custom shim pads
Advanced Equine Saddle Fit can make a custom or semi-custom saddle pad to improve the fit of your saddle for your horse. It is always better to invest in a saddle that perfectly fits your horse, but that isn't always possible to do in the short term. 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 invest in 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 will 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.
