SADDLE FITTING PROCEDURES – PLEASE READ

Once an appointment is scheduled and I arrive at your barn, please have your horse ready and groomed and be prepared to ride.

For more detailed explanations of what these procedures entail, please go to our In-Motion System Details and Saddle Fitting pages.

In the event of a last minute cancellation or no show, a minimum fee of $100 is assessed to cover the allotted appointment time.

 

Travel Fee: No charge within Southern Pines and Pinehurst, NC.
For any other locations, travel fees are charged based on time and distance and might be waived/split for barns with multiple horses. Please contact me for details.

Evaluation of CURRENT SADDLE: $120. This fee will include:

  • Take the history of you, your horse and the saddle
  • Evaluate fit of up to 2 saddles
  • Symmetry and palpation evaluation of the horse
  • Movement evaluation
  • Take tracings / templates
  • Check integrity of saddle(s) (broken/twisted tree, uneven stirrup bars etc)
  • Conduct a static and ridden evaluation

brita-fittingAbout 1 – 1.5 hrs
Note: Realize that nothing can be done for a foam saddle that doesn't fit properly except a possible conversion or suggestions of pads – full fee still applies.

 

Computerized pressure scans: $80.00 p. horse/saddle

  • The rider will be able to ride the horse as usual and the horse will only have a thin additional
    saddle pad on its back.
  • After the recording has been done the scan will be interpreted and the saddle fit is discussed.

Since the electronic components are all integrated in the pressure pad the rider will not have anything attached to his/her body.

About 1 hour

 

New Saddle Fitting: $150.00

  • Take the history of you, your horse
  • Take tracings / templates
  • Ride in several demo saddles

About 2 – 2.5 hours for this appointment (will depend on the amount of saddles tried)

 

On Site Flocking: $80.00

This fee applies for flocking the saddle (wool is added or removed to balance fit). After the saddle has been worked on, the fit will be evaluated again (with the rider up); flocking will be adjusted again if needed.

Note: In the event that a saddle is flocked to fit the horse without the rider present to participate in the fitting and movement evaluation portion of the fitting, Dynamic Equine Saddle Fitting assumes no responsibility in the event that the saddle does not fit properly.

 

Complete Re-Flock: $325

Complete Conversion from Foam or Cair to Wool: $350

The saddle needs to be taken to my workshop to be completed. Your saddle will be returned clean and conditioned in 2 days time. If the saddle needs to be shipped back to you add $40.

 

Billet Replacements:

$40/billet
Point Billets: $135.00
Add $55.00 if saddle needs to be unstitched and reassembled.
