Faqs About Saddles


What is a horse saddle called?

A horse saddle is called a horse tack. A proper horse tack should fit your horse. Once you have your new horse saddles or horse tacks, you will need to make sure it fits your horse properly. The first thing you have to do is check that the channel is the correct size for your horse:


  • Put the horse saddles without any of the cheap horse blanket types.
  • If the channel is the correct size, you should see directly through the horse saddles from the horse’s withers. If this is not the case, then the mount is too small.
  • Go to the front of the channel, below the horn or pommel, and tuck in as many fingers vertically as you can. If the saddle fits properly, you should be able to fit about 2-3 fingers. If you can stick more toes in the front of the canal, then the saddles are too big.


If you don’t have that much leeway, the saddle seat may be too small for you. There is a multitude of accessories for horses, and saddles have their arsenal. Let’s see it.


Parts of horse saddles:

Shaft or frame: It is the base on which the rest of the saddle is made. This component is usually made of wood or a similar synthetic material. When finished, it is covered in leather or other artificial material.


Seat: This is the part of the horse saddle where the rider sits. The front and rear studs are usually higher to provide more safety to the rider.


Front: It is the front part of the horse saddles, and it is slightly raised.


Rear: It is the rear part of the saddles for horses that, again, is slightly elevated concerning the seat.


Stirrup: The stirrup is the part of horse saddles in which the rider places their feet. It provides good support to the rider, as well as being able to control the horse.


Footpegs and Leg Guards: The footpegs connect the stirrups to the shaft, and the leg guards support the rider’s leg while protecting him from sweat.


Ring: It is a ‘D’ shaped ring located on the front of the horse saddles. It is the anchor point for certain parts of the equipment, such as the breastplate.


Girth: The strap passes under the horse’s belly and holds the saddle to the animal.


Skirts: They constitute the horse saddle pad located in the lower part of the saddle to protect the horse.


Over cinch: A long strap goes over the saddle and around the horse’s belly to secure the saddle to the animal.


Grip strap: This is a handle attached to the front of European chairs and at the height of the right hand in Australian ones. The rider can use it as a support to stay seated when riding the horse.


Horn of pommel: This appendage attached to the front extension is often associated with the western saddle but can also be seen in other saddle designs.


Knee Pads: provide an additional horse saddle pad on the front of the leg pads to stabilize the rider’s legs. On some frames, thigh guards are also added to the rear of the leg warmers, providing the same support.
