Help Fit My Horse

We strongly encourage those of you who are considering the purchase of an  Imus 4-Beat® Gaited Saddle to take advantage of our unique "Help Fit My Horse" service.  Many owners believe that if their horse has a large barrel, it requires a wide tree - but this is not the primary consideration when determining correct saddle tree configuration.  Some horses that may appear 'standard' to the average eye actually require a tree with angles for a wider topline.   We will look at photos of your horse and ask a few key questions and you can be sure of your saddle choice in no time!

We prefer pictures to measurements as measurements give an idea of your horse as they are standing still and when they begin to move it changes quite a bit. Pictures help me get an idea of their whole conformation including if your horse has other conformation traits that affect fitting such as being hollow behind the shoulder, sway through the back, rump-high, etc. 

Here is how it works: email using the instructions below.  We will get back to you soon - within a day during the week! 

NEW! You can now set up an appointment to come visit our showroom and discuss our Imus 4-Beat and Legacy saddles and set up in-person saddle fittings with us for your horse. CONTACT US to make an appointment. We are located in Jamestown, NY

Please take photos like the ones you see here. Your horse should be standing relatively square, with a background that allows us to view it clearly.  As always, please make sure you are standing out of reach of the horse's back legs.

While we are very successful at offering appropriate recommendations, our recommendation is not a guarantee of fit.  If your saddle does not fit you may exchange or return it according to our 14 day trial guidelines.
