If you know you have a registered Paso Fino, Rocky, Peruvian,
TWH, etc, then you don't need to ask this question. Of course, your horse
needs a gaited saddle. The question comes up when a horse owner does not
know the breed of their horse, or it is a mixture of one or more breeds.
REMEMBER, WE CAN MAKE SADDLE FOR GAITED AND TROTTING HORSES. Other saddle
companies that understand this are IMUS 4Beat saddle, Kuda Store &
Freedom Saddle. If you don't buy a saddle for your gaited horse from us,
then use someone who knows about this.
WHEN I USE THE WORD "TWIST", I AM NOT REFERRING TO THE WAIST OF THE SADDLE. I AM REFERRING TO THE TREE, AND HOW IT FOLLOWS THE SHAPE OF THE HORSE'S BACK.
There is an exercise I do where I place my palms flat
on the horse's back, where the panels of the saddle would lie. I learned
this from watching a Gaited Horse Clinician named Larry
Whitesell. Larry uses a Freedom Saddle.

Larry, for allowing me to use this wonderful observation on my site.
