The Specialized Saddles Flat Fitting Inserts (shims) help you adjust the fit of your saddle to your horse. Cut them to the required size using scissors and insert between the Fitting Cushion and saddle tree to achieve uniform contact across your horse’s back.
Flat shims are most commonly used for horse that have a large arch in their back and a bridging saddle.
