Professional saddle fitting services

Saddle fitting can improve performance because it ensures that the rider is balanced. Both horse and rider will feel more comfortable and safer. Equine medical professionals recommend this service to minimise back issues and assist with rehabilitation.

“Often I’m asked, who should have their saddle fitted? The answer is simple, anyone that puts their bum in a saddle.

Many clients have stated that as a kid they never had the need for their saddle to be fitted. This is true but with all the research conducted over the last 20 years we are better educated in this area. Our horse’s physique has changed due to the introduction of new breeds, training techniques and the impact of new saddle designs.

The level of competition has also increased as the stakes are higher than ever. Having a saddle fitted professionally ensures the rider is correctly balanced and this helps improve your overall performance.

But it isn’t just for the professional riders, saddle fitting is for any horse lover that just wants the best for their four legged companion.”
