Before purchasing a saddle, you must be certain that the gaited saddle is a comfortable fit for the horse, so that his/her gait will not be altered. There are a few things that must be done before purchasing a saddle. The horse should be measured to get the right size of saddle. The weight of the rider should be taken into account, and the type of riding activity that the horse plans to undertake should be a deciding factor as to the saddle that will be purchased. For example, if the horse will be in horse shows, then a decorated saddle will probably be preferred. This will drive up the price a little, but that is to be expected.
