Our testimonials

Poorly fitting saddles are one of the most common causes of discomfort and are often attributed to behavioural issues in ridden horses. I encourage everyone to work with their saddle fitter, use the Perfect Fit Kit to check and monitor the shape of your horse's back and understand when it has changed and that then you need to get your saddle fitter to come and check it for you. The Perfect Fit Kit is an important tool for welfare, plus only by ensuring the comfort of your horse can they perform at their best.

  An excellent and simple tool for owners to monitor changes to the shape of their horse's back so they can notify me. As soon as a change in the horse's profile has been identified, my customers send me photos of the template. This means swift action can be taken and I can turn up to the appointment prepared and informed.

  The Perfect Fit Kit is an essential piece of equipment in any horse owners tool kit. The horse owner is at the forefront of equine protection and in using this tool they can help to protect their horse from saddle damage and also keep an eye on their development! What a wonderful concept.

“It is just great to see someone giving all the right information needed. We make Saddles for customers all over the world and this helps with the Saddle measuring information required. It makes the job a lot easier to do and understand.”

Frank Baines

“As a chiropractor of 15 years standing I have seen and treated a lot of horses with back problems and a lot of these have been caused by ill fitting saddles, if the owners had access to a simple way of checking their saddle fit a lot of distress to the horse would have been eliminated, now we have a product that will do just that well done for thinking of it.”


“At shows and competitions I see so many riders using saddles that don’t fit. There’s no way a horse can perform properly if they are in pain or restricted by the fit of the saddle. This kit should put an end to that.”


  The Perfect Fit Kit is a brilliant tool I like to use when I am rehabbing a client's horse. It allows clients to see how quickly horses develop and therefore change shape during the rehab process. This allows them to reach out to saddle fitters to adjust their saddles before they start having a detrimental affect on a horses back.

  A fantastic product! The Perfect Fit is a simple way for horse owners to track changes in their horse's profile- especially helpful for my customers with horses who change shape regularly- as soon as they notice a change, they can contact me to book in a saddle check! Simple!

When clients ask me ‘when should I next have you out to check my saddle fit?’ and, candidly, no saddle fitter is able to give a perfect answer in response, this is where The Perfect Fit Kit comes into play excellently! My clients can use The Perfect Fit Kit to guide them in recognising when they need me to come out to make alterations to their saddle fit and thus making every consultation relevant.
