The importance of a correctly fitting saddle

I created Saddles That Fit with the sole aim of helping horses and riders to live happy, healthy lives. I fit using a high level of ethics and will always do what is right for the horse. Horses can not speak and therefore I have a duty to be their voice. I work with a range of breeds and types from ponies to performance horses, from showing to showjumping.  

Correctly fitted saddles for horses and ponies

By having the correct saddle it
allows a horse and rider to:

Feel unrestricted, unimpeded and uninhibited

Move with more ease, less effort
and become more supple.

Become more balanced in their body, utilising it to the best of its abilities.

Create a better partnership, working together in cadence and harmony.

Reduce anxiety, stress and tension,
whilst maximising results.

Reduce the need for corrective chiropractic/osteopathy and physiotherapy

Reduce stress on joints and muscles

Be more effective and perform better

Develop the required muscles in
the correct places

Train harder and recover faster
