“As my horse had suffered from an ill-fitting saddle, I am very determined to alleviate this consequence for other horses."
My life long study of the detrimental effects of poor saddle fit, the horse in motion, and equine development, led me to develop Saddlefit 4 Life® in 2005 - a global network (veterinarians, trainers, physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and saddle fitters) dedicated to protecting horse and rider from long term damage. I teach Saddlefit 4 Life® principles and system to equine professionals so they can recognize and diagnose suspected saddle fit issues, and get to the root of issues they are facing. The key saddle fit principles - stay off negative reflex points on the horse’s back, and work with the bio-mechanics of the horse in motion for complete back freedom.”
“Never again should any horse have to suffer for the ignorance of his rider, nor will a once sound horse have to be farmed out, or put down because the damage is so severe that nothing more can be done to help or change the situation. It’s all about helping the horse by improving back health and comfort. For me - the biggest thank you is when a horse begins to move freely, happily, and well in a properly fitted saddle! Often riders throw their arms around me crying with joy, because the difference is that visible and they realize how much harm they had unknowingly done riding in an ill-fitting saddle. This is my calling - teaching professionals around the world so together we can improve the well-being of horses and riders worldwide.”
