  1. To get an accurate measurement place your saddle on your horse in the usual position.
    Make a note of where the front of the saddle contacts the horse.
    This should be approximately three fingers width back from the shoulder blade.
  2. Remove the saddle and place the measuring device in the correct position.
  3. Move the measuring device until both sides are contacting the horse and a measurement can be taken.
  4. Once you have moved the measuring device to the correct setting a reading can be taken.
  5. Remove the measuring device from the horse without loosing the reading.
  6. Your horse’s size is clearly indicated on the measuring device.

    These steps can be repeated every few months to monitor your horses shape and saddle fit.
