The importance of a well adapted saddle
The saddle has long been chosen for the comfort it offered to the rider or for the outward signs of wealth it represented.

Although bareback riding is an ideal widely spread by the entertainment industry, the fact remains that the saddle remains the essential interface ensuring the comfort of the horse in the first place and that of his rider. This tool must be well adjusted so as not to become a nuisance. The saddle must allow a stable and uniform distribution that protects sensitive areas of the horse.
Several criteria come into play: morphology, posture, psychosomatic aspect, bobology; then the discipline practiced and according to which school, the level on horseback, the horse or the horses concerned (s) by the saddle in question; and lastly, the projects (fantasy VS reality), external susceptibilities, fashion, etc.

So, when you buy a saddle, the only indication of size jumper we have is the size of the tree, more precisely its length, which will roughly give an indication of the size of the seat. This measurement is taken at an angle, between the saddle nail and the center of the trunk.
