How to Saddle a Horse

The first step to saddling a horse is brushing its back. Your horse may sweat under the saddle and it’s important to brush away any loose hairs that the horse may want to shake off. Next, place your pad on the horse’s back. Now, prepare the horse saddle. Make sure the girth strap is on the right side of the saddle and out of the way. Next, pick up the saddle, approach your horse from the left, and place the saddle on your horse. Once the saddle is situated, secure and tighten all the straps. Lastly, put on the bridle. Once you’ve completed these steps, you’re ready to ride!

How to Clean a Saddle

Regular cleaning is an important part of saddle care. First, you’ll prep your saddle. Unfasten buckles and straps and remove excess dirt, mud, or other large particles with a towel. Next, use a damp sponge to apply a layer of saddle soap or leather cleaner in a circular motion (avoid any suede areas). You may need to rinse the sponge and reapply depending on how dirty your saddle is. Next, use a damp towel to wipe down the saddle and remove soap residue. Once you’ve removed all the soap, apply a leather conditioner to your saddle. That’s it, now your saddle is ready for another ride!

How to Measure a Saddle

Making sure your saddle fits properly should be your first priority when making your decision. First, you’ll want to examine your horse's withers and back and figure out their shape and size. Most horses will need medium or wide bars. Next, you’ll need to measure the seat size. Seat size for western saddles runs according to the length between the saddle's swell and the top of the cantle. You should also consider how you sit in your saddle. Sit in the saddle and measure from the top of your thigh to the swell. You should be able to fit at least four fingers between this area. If you can only fit 1 or 2 fingers between your thigh and the swell, you should probably go up a size. Finally, you’ll need to measure the cantle. The height and angle of the cantle will determine how deep you’ll sit and how secure you’ll feel. A 4-5 inch cantle will give you great back support, whereas a cantle that is less than 4 inches will give you a more relaxed seat.
