    Shim Pads

    These pads and shims are not a cure all and are only effective when used with a proper foundation of knowledge. Although shimming can be very effective if done wrong it can make the situation worse.

    • Your saddle must have a functional rigging!

    • If it is a double rigged saddle you must tighten your rear cinch.

    Before attempting to shim your saddle we recommend that you have either attended one of Davids clinics, participated in the webinar or have viewed About Saddle Fit DVD so you have an understanding of the basic concepts of saddle fitting. (507) 346-2766
