Hi! I’m Kelli on behalf of Expert Village.
I am going to show you my techniques for saddling a horse with an English saddle. So once you
have your saddled placed on the back, you want to take a good look at it and see whether
or not you need to put a riser underneath. Just from looking on this, you can see her
saddle kind of dips a little bit in a downward slope, so that is telling me that we want
to up a riser underneath her saddle to keep everything more even, everything more level.
That is going to be more comfortable for her and more comfortable for you as well. What
we are going to do is we are just going to take our riser pad which is this here, we
are just going to lift up our saddle and we are going to slide this right under. Make
sure that it is properly fitted underneath and then we will just put this one strap back
on our billet here. So you can see it makes the saddle fit a little more level on the
horse’s back so it is going to a lot more comfortable for her and it will be a lot more
comfortable for you as well.
