I can’t possibly put on one page all of the products that I have access to! Suffice it to say, if you are looking for something particular and can’t find it, I probably can get it. All variety of leather goods including custom products, whips, bits, brushes, stable blankets, coolers, leg wraps, dog coats, exercise blankets, martingales, bridles, halters, buckets, manure forks…
On this page, I will simply include the items I generally have in stock!
The girth you use directly affects the fit of the saddle!
Horses with forward girth grooves or big, laid back shoulders really benefit from an offset girth. It can dramatically improve the fit of their saddle, and therefore there comfort and performance. They aren’t for every horse, but at your saddle fit appointment we will determine if this girth is right for you and what size you need.

Similar to the above in purpose, this girth has top-notch Harry Dabbs quality leather and workmanship. The offset is slightly less than for the TSF girths above, so one girth may suit your horse better than the other. Long, short, and synthetic versions all boast Triple Crossover elastic at both ends.

In order to fit a horse to a saddle, it has to have adequately developed back muscles to carry a saddle! If your horse does not, I may recommend some work in the Pro-Core Trainer by Thermatex www.thermatex.co.uk.
The Pro-Core can be used with a surcingle, as shown, or under a saddle. An adjustable elastic band under the belly encourages using abdominal muscles to lift the back, and two positions for one around the hindquarters encourages even engagement of both hind legs.
The Pro-Core Trainer is a powerful tool to be used under the guidance of your vet or physiotherapist! $150.00
Thermatex Saddle Fitters Pad
Complete with 6 front shims and 4 rear shims. Fits all style of saddles.
It is widely known that horses are not symmetrical and in many cases a saddle fitting pad can help to remedy this. It is also an excellent aid for horses who lack muscle tone due to age, fitness or injury. Unlike other shimmable half pads in that it is VERY thin. Most half pads add quite a bit of bulk even without shims, often making a saddle that very nearly fits too tight. When recommending shims to clients I usually recommend JUST a shim, not a shimmable pad, for that reason. The problem with that is that shims can slip or get lost! This pad is the solution!
Each Thermatex Saddle Fitters Pad comes with 10 corrective shims which can be placed inside any of the four pockets (a maximum of 6 in the front and 4 in the back) to achieve the correct saddle balance.
This pad is not designed to be used with an ill-fitting saddle – we recommend that you have your saddle checked regularly.
The ideal aid for saddle fitting adjustments. $120
