In order to fit a Gaited horse a saddle must be able to adjust to all 3 dimensions of the horses back. All TW Saddlery Saddles have the patented fitting system that is the only one in the world that can independently adjust to all 3 angles of a horse. The fitting system allows for a horse to gait freely without shoulder pinching or restriction of movement. The cushioning of the movement of the muscles that attach to the scapula make longer strides comfortable and more fluid for the horse. This is very important for long distance and endurance riding. When Gaited horse are uncomfortable they are often reluctant to gait freely. Click here to see our video on why TW Saddlery has the best saddles for gaited horses!
