There is more to saddle fitting than assessing the horse's topline. The saddle position in relation to the natural girth position, length of withers, and the alignment of withers, shoulders and elbows all have an effect on the saddle. E. A. Mattes has revolutionary girth shapes that address and correct the various issues that arise from certain conformation types. Below we will explain the different shapes
Elastication for the dressage girths is achieved by attaching the buckles to the girth with heavy elastic. This provides a small amount of stretch which is all that's needed in a dressage girth. It basically allows the horse to breathe comfortably, and enough movement to allow the horse to be flexible through the ribcage, whilst remaining supported through the sternum, at the same time preventing the saddle from moving around.
