How to measure an Australian Stock Saddle Australian saddles are measured differently to Western or English saddles. Below is a guide to the size you will need in an Australian saddle, however we still require your height, weight and pant size to correctly determine the exact size you will need for a particular saddle. Western Size 14" 15" 16" 17" 18" English Size 17" 18" 19" 20" 21" Aussie Size 16" 17" 18" 19" 20" (a) length of tree. (b) dip in seat. (c) height of kneepad. (d) height of thigh pad. (e) length of flap. Why Ride in an Aussie Saddle? Rider Comfort. The suspended seat of an Aussie saddle means that your pelvic bones are making contact with a surface that "gives" like a hammock rather than a hard wood surface. The easy to turn leathers and balanced seating position are easy on your knees. Horse Fitment. Because Australian saddles are lighter and more compact than a Western saddle, they are naturally more comfortable for the horse. In addition, the stuffed serge panels on most Aussie saddles gives extra cushion. Safety. The poleys (or kneepads) at the front of the saddle will keep a rider in the seat better than any other type of saddle. In combination with a deep seat, the poleys give the most secure ride around. If a rider should come off of the saddle the leathers can slide off the stirrup bar in the event that the rider gets caught up in the stirrup. Riding Position. The seat of an Australian saddle naturally puts the rider in a balanced riding position, with half the rider's weight in the seat and half in the stirrups. Also, the close contact nature of the flaps, leathers, and rigging mean that the rider gets a better feel for their horse, allowing better control. Add these great features to the fact that there are loads of d-rings and attachment points on an Australian saddle, and you have a horse saddle that is ideal for trail riders. In fact, we like to call the Aussie saddle the Ultimate Trail Saddle.

WHAT WE NEED FOR YOUR AUSSIE SADDLE
HOW TO DO A WITHER TRACING #1. First, note where an Australian saddle sits on the horse. It is forward on the withers, with the girth one to three inches behind the front leg. We want the wither tracing to reflect where the front of the saddle will be on the horse. The easiest way to find this spot is to follow the line of the back of the horse's front leg straight up to the top of the withers. #2. Next, snip off the twisted ends of a common coat hanger (or use any other bendable wire), and bend the wire over the withers where indicated until you have a snug fit. Carefully remove without changing the angle. #3. Trace the outline of the wire on a standard 8 1/2" by 11" sheet of paper with a black marker or a bold pen. Turn the paper sideways to give a larger drawing of the withers. We only need 6 to 8 inches down each side of the wire to get the correct angle. #4. Fax or mail to (513) 724 0702. Make sure to include your name, phone number, and the saddle you ordered (or are interested in). Make sure to include the breed of horse, its height in hands, and its heart girth measurement (all the way around the horse where the girth goes - see below). For the rider, include your height, weight, and pant size. HOW TO DO A HEART GIRTH MEASUREMENT We need a heartgirth measurement to determine what size girth to send. Heart Girth Measurement Measure the circumference of the horses body in inches. This measurement goes all the way around the horse, about one to three inches behind the front legs. Don't worry if you get it wrong, you will receive one free fitting after the purchase of your saddle to have it corrected. You of course have to pay shipping.
