Influence of girth strap placement and panel flocking material on the saddle pressure pattern during riding of horses

Byström, Anna; Stalfelt, Annika; Egenvall, Agneta; von Peinein, Katja; Morgan, K; Roepstorff, Lars


Both flocking material and girthing have a significant influence on the saddle pressure and should thus be considered in saddle fitting. Wool seems a better flocking material than foam of the type used in the current study. For girthing, traditional placement seems equally good if not better than the v-system. However, further studies are needed to show if these results are valid for a larger population of riding horses.
