Quarter Horse, Semi-Quarter Horse and Full Quarter Horse Beers? Now you can buy our 67 minutes long Western Saddle Fit - The Basics on our new website westernsaddlefit.com. We' also have a 7-minute YouTube movie on Western Saddle Fit - The Essentials. Unless you compare uprights from the same manufacturer, not just from the same saddler (and very often you don't know who made the uprights anymore), they really can't even be used for comparison.
Where are the pubs? Okay, while this is a fundamental issue for a blogs focused on saddle maker accepted, it is one I have not infrequently seen on horse-like forums. Well, this is a fundamental one. These are the two parts of the trees that lie on the back of the horse. These are the ones that have to adapt to the form of the back - in length, width, angles, rotation, rocks, crowns, etc..
Quarter Horse Bar, Semi-Quarter Horse Bar and Full Quarter Horse Bar don't really talk about the bar - just to make you confused. These are words that were initially intended to describe a fitting - the way these sticks were placed and formed to suit a particular horse type.
Of what we know about a saddler who knows the story, a large saddlery somewhere around the mid of the last millennium wanted to help their clients find the right horse for them. The majority of their calipers were designed to match the normal horse that existed 50 to 60 years ago - and there were far fewer variations than in the general horse populations today.
These were much smaller and A-shaped than our ordinary quarter horse in North America today. These became the "Regular Bars"-Fit. However, then the Quarter Horse began to grow in popularity, and there were many more buff, broader mounts. That' s how they came up with the idea of what they call their "Quarter Horse Bars".
The rods in these beams were further apart and arranged at a shallower angel to each other. It worked well except that there were studs falling between these two passes, so that the Quarter Horse Bar was too broad and shallow and the regularly spaced bar was too tight and too hefty.
This is how the Semi-Quarter Horse Bar was born. Beams were placed in the center of the street width and the bar corners were adjusted between the Regular and Quarter Horse corners. Then when the times went by and the size of the horse grew and the true quarter horse breed had more impact, there were more of them than even the quarter horse bar could handle.
The Full Quarter Horse Pubs came out with an even broader spreading and an even shallower pole corner. The different fitting sequences went from regular, via Semi-Quarter Horse to Quarter Horse to Full Quarter Horse, with the barriers getting further and further apart and the corners getting broader and broader.
You can at least have an impression of where your horse is in the "typical horse sizes" category, and you can order something from this comp. that you are hoping will suit this category. It is my assumption that the initial firm that used these words not only changed the width and angularity, but also included various distortions, crowns, etc. in their "bar sizes", but I don't know exactly.
There have never been any measures or concepts about these various elements, at least not that anyone outside the business would have known. However - every treemaker does things differently..... The problem was that they used different types of wood from different manufacturers, and these would be different from each other.
However, soon those who didn't realize that every treemaker (and saddler) did things differently thought that since the conditions were the same, the fitting was the same. There''s no standard for how a semi-quarter horse bar saddle works. While the evolution within a single treemaker from Regular to Semi-Quarter Horse to Quarter Horse to Full Quarter Horse is still going from the smallest to the broadest, this does not necessarily mean that things are the same between manufacturers.
A manufacturer's Semi-Quarter Horse ingots may be broader in width and/or angles than another manufacturer's Quarter Horse ingots. There is no other way than to put it on the horse, check what it looks like underneath (our disc will help you know what you're looking for!) and if it looks like a horseback riding is the ultimative test.
Whereas the terms Semi-Quarter Horse, Quarter Horse and Full Quarter Horse can give you an impression of which part of the horse's back shape bend the saddle should suit, the adaptation of a saddle to a horse is in fact like the purchase of women's attire.
When I compare the search for the right saddle with trying to buy a shoe without trying it on first. Not only do you need to adapt easily for long periods of horseback rides, but also your best companion for long periods of time. Unless you have enough cash for a customized saddle (and a nice customized boom like you blokes build!) purchasing a saddle is really trying and mistake.
If you find a make of treetree that suits your horse(s) well, then you know that you can look for that same make of saddle tree next times you buy a saddle and have an imagination of how their sticks will fit. The only good thing about it is if you find a make of horse that is apt... There' s a certain make of saddle with which I had a lot of good fortune and now I'm looking for a saddle with that particular make of tre.
Others (like Ralide in particular) never seem to go well with my horse. I would like to have an individual saddle with a treetree made by you.
