The right size
What is the right size for me?*
The right size of the seat for the equestrian depends upon the length of the thigh.
Sit on a chair in a way thay the thigh is horizontal. Then measure the length.
In the table below you can lookup the recommended seat size.
|Length of thigh||Recommended seat size|
|up to 41 cm||15 inch|
|up to 41 46 cm||16 inch|
|up to 50 cm||16,5 inch|

* The above table is intended as a guideline. The suitable size also depends on the build of the rider. In addition, the horse itself is, of course, important. For example, for a horse with a short back, a 17.5-inch saddle can be too large. For large, heavier riders up to 80-85 kg, Deuber does not recommend the shorty version, and it is better to choose the normal size, this has to do with the pressure distribution of the saddle on the horse’s back.
* Because the seat of these saddles is different from an English dressage saddle, it is advisable first to try one of our test saddles or to request a pass consultation.
