Saddle Fitment: By purchasing from us you receive service and advice that is unparalleled within the industry. Most of our current Kimberley Series and Down Under models have adjustable saddle trees, whereby we can adjust the saddle to fit nearly any kind of horse …big or small. When we receive your wither tracing we match it to the saddle you have chosen and adjust the saddle as necessary (for wither tracing details, see our web page about saddle fitment). If you are unsure of the saddle fit after you receive your saddle, post or email some photographs of the saddle on the horse, with the horse in a normal upright position. The photos should be from the side, from the front at a 45 degree angle, and from the back at a 45 degree angle. We will contact you within (48) hours of receiving the photographs to advise you if the fitment is correct. If the fitment is correct you can feel secure knowing that you and your horse have many years of riding pleasure to look forward to.
What if I make a mistake with the wither tracing? After viewing the photographs we will advise you if you have the saddle correctly positioned on the horse and if the saddle fitment is correct. If the saddle fitment is not correct we offer each customer who orders directly from Cariboo Outback one saddle tree adjustment at no charge, any time during the first year of ownership. This is a $50 value. You send the saddle to us freight pre-paid, along with a note with your phone number and return delivery address, we will adjust the saddle tree to suit the wither tracing and we will pay the return shipping back to you. Please allow up to five work days for the adjustment, plus the return shipping time.

A Safety tip from Down Under: Horse riding can be extremely enjoyable, but also dangerous. We recommend that you carefully check all equipment before riding. If in doubt, replace immediately. It is essential to maintain your saddle and tack regularly using our recommended oils and waxes. Check all stitching, stirrup leathers, stirrups, overgirth, girths, billet straps and all tack items each time before riding. We also suggest an approved safety helmet and safety vest be worn at all times when riding.
