 We believe saddle fitting is an integral part of your horse’s welfare.  A well-fitted saddle will provide your horse with comfort and freedom of motion. It also gives you a stable and supportive platform, allowing you a balanced seat and a correct position which helps your horse to move correctly and in balance.
