When riding your horse, it's important that you can communicate effectively, remain secure and comfortable, and that your horse stay relaxed and focused. Proper saddle fit is the first step in obtaining all of this. If the saddle you ride in does not fit properly, your horse will simply be unable to perform to its peak ability and remain happy and eager for more. Improper saddle fit is a common cause for frustrations under saddle and can even be cause for mystery lameness and erratic behavior . In addition to everything that it can do to your horse, YOU could also be effected, as your saddle may be working against you! Let us make sure you and your horse have absolutely nothing standing in the way of correct and harmonious communication.
