Description

2 pocket Correction® system.

Bridging saddles are a very common problem, not only with Western saddles but also with English saddles. Because of the narrowness in the centre of the panel of the saddle, saddle flocking is problematical in this area. Our 2 pocket Correction® system together with our Poly-flex® shims provides the best and easiest means of solving this problem in the following way.

Each pocket, (one on the near side, one on the off side) will take up to 6 x 5mm Poly-flex® shims, giving up to 30mm of adjustment per pocket. Poly-flex® shims can be added to and removed from the pockets quickly and easily, as required. Poly-Flex® shims can be cut and glued together as required to provide a completely gapless and exact fit where the saddle ‘bridges’.

We would recommend that you are assisted by a fully trained saddle fitter in correcting a problem of this nature.

Our 2 pocket Correction® system together with our Poly-flex® shims, also provides an ideal solution to equalise ‘one sided’ backs caused by, for example, under developed muscles along the full length of the saddle.

Should it no longer be necessary to correct the fit of the saddle, simply remove all Poly-flex® shims and use the Numnah / Saddlepad as though it were a standard Numnah / Saddlepad.

When ordering a Numnah or Saddlepad with our 2 pocket Correction® system, please remember to order the appropriate number of 2 pocket Poly-flex® shims. Please note that the Poly-flex® shims are cut to suit the style of your Numnah / Saddlepad (eg. General Purpose, Dressage, Show Jumping).

4 Pocket Correction System

We firmly believe our Correction® system to be, absolutely, the best engineered system available. Of course it adds cost to the product but the advantages and flexibility this offers is clear to see. Our sales of Correction® system products are increasing tremendously and we firmly believe that in the not too distant future most of our products will be ordered with this facility.

There are many reasons why it may be necessary to correct the fit of the saddle to ensure it remains in balance without altering its flocking:-

  • To help compensate for changes in young horses due to their rapid muscle development during training
  • For fully trained horses which change muscle definition during periods of work and rest
  • To help correct natural irregularities in the horses build
  • To help compensate for a ‘lower back’ caused by age
  • To help compensate for changes in form and condition over seasons

Our 4 pocket Correction® system (2 pockets at the front, one on the near side, one on the off side; 2 pockets at the rear, one on the near side, one on the off side) together with our 5mm thick Poly-flex® shims, provide the means for ensuring a perfectly balanced saddle with full flexibility. Each Correction® pocket will take up to 6 x 5mm Poly-flex® shims, giving up to 30mm of adjustment per pocket. Poly-flex® shims can be added to and removed from the pockets, as required.

When correcting the balance of the saddle, insert into each pocket the required number of shims. Should it no longer be necessary to correct the fit of the saddle, you may simply and easily remove all Poly-flex® shims and use the numnah / saddlepad as though it were a standard Numnah / Saddlepad. (retain the shims for possible future use)

When ordering a Numnah or Saddlepad with our 4 pocket Correction® system, please remember to order the appropriate number of 4 pocket Poly-flex® shims. Please note that the front Poly-flex® shims are cut to suit the style of your Numnah / Sadllepad (eg. General Purpose, Dressage, Show Jumping). The rear Poly-flex® shims are a universal cut and therefore suitable for all styles.

We firmly believe our Correction® system to be, absolutely, the best engineered system available. Of course it adds cost to the product but the advantages and flexibility this offers is clear to see. Our sales of Correction® system products are increasing tremendously and we firmly believe that in the not too distant future most of our products will be ordered with this facility.
