Rules of thumb for encumber fit - pets

 

In compiling some in rank on achieving a appropriate fit to the horse when purchasing a burden I came athwart more than a few "Rules of Thumb" to bear in mind. There's a wealth of in rank free on the branch of learning of load fitting, some of it contradictory. It's easy for the first time (or even back time) burden buyer to get bemused . The next Rules of Thumb are deliberate to help a prospective buyer get barbed in the right direction.

The Rules :

Rule of Thumb #1: All saddles don't fit all horses.

This would seem obvious, but the novice might buy a lumber with only the rider in mind. While it's evident that a Belgian, Quarterhorse, and Haflinger would each demand a lumber of a altered size this is still a good rule to keep in mind.

Rule of Thumb #2: Some western burden (trees) fit most western or stock horses.

There is truth to this statement. A Western Load built on semi-quarter horse bars will fit most cow ponies and alike an English lumber on a average tree will fit most horses. Also way, you have maybe an 80% accidental of success. But if you have to go all through the hassle of habitual a encumber or have to endure with a poor fit those aren't essentially the best odds.

Rule of Thumb #3: If you buy a lumber based on arrival alone, it won't fit (Murphy's Law useful to encumber buying).

Well, we all do belongings like this occasionally, maybe more with automobiles than with saddles. It's hard to turn down a touch that appeals to the eye. But most skilled horsemen and horsewomen wouldn't buy based on looks alone - would we?

Rule of Thumb #4: Like other clothes in life, the more in sequence you gather, the beat your accidental of success.

What this says is that if you're going to acquire a saddle, the more you know about saddles and the more you know about the horse(s) in question, the develop your ability of achievement (a good fit) will be. You needn't be an knowledgeable - just take the time to learn a few belongings like, why fit is important, the basic parts of the burden tree, etc. .

A effect to this rule is - find out what the encumber maker or trader needs in the way of in order to get you the lumber you need. If they don't ask for some in sequence find a different retailer.

Rule of Thumb #5: If you don't know a lot about horses, get a celebrity who does to help you out.

Put a further way - If you don't know what you're doing, don't do too much of it. This is in all probability the best ruile for the novice to follow. Get a associate or aquaintance who knows a lot about horses, or your vet or your local outfitter - a person you feel you can trust - to help you out. They can tell you what measurements to need to take or, by looking at the horse, whether you actually need to take any. Being paid some practiced assistance can save you lots of grief downstream.

Rule of Thumb #6 (Golden Rule): You won't know for sure if the burden fits until you put it on the horse and go for a ride.

This rule has all sorts of implications. "Measuring" the horse for lumber fit can range from visual inspection to withers tracings to molds and high tech measuring devices. The more you calculate the beat the fit you are apt to complete but at some point it can be heavy-handedness since you never accomplish a "perfect fit". The only way to certify good fit is to put the load on the horse and go for a ride.
