• Description

First of all, if you are attempting to help rectify a bridging problem with your saddle, you need our 2 pocket Correction® system, please select our information page for 2 pocket Correction® system.

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.

On each appropriate product page we provide a quick link to the relevant shims for your convenience.

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.
