How to take your horse's measurements to choose the withers opening:
Marjoman offers 3 basic wither openings:
- regular (28cm)
- wide (32cm)
- extra large (35cm)
But the Marjoman trees being thermoformable, the size can range from 28cm to 36cm, each centimeter.
To find the right withers opening for your horse:
- take a wire of 42cm
- mold it to the shape of your horse's withers where the front of the saddle should rest, about 5cm behind the scapula
- measure the width at the ends of the wire: this measurement in centimeters is the withers opening
- you may repeat this operation 40cm behind the first measurement
You can see how to perform these steps in pictures in the photos above.
You can transfer the shape of the wire to a piece of paper and send us a photo of it by email (noting the measurements found on it) or the original by post. Be careful to respect the right/left side of the wire on the paper.
You can also send us photos of the horse, naked, motionless, on flat ground, visible up to the hooves:
front, back, profile, 3/4 front and 3/4 back, and a view of the back from above the croup.
Please also indicate race, age, height and gender.
