“The Hooves of horses”
On the wings of the morning they gather and fly,

SADDLE FITTING CLINIC
Saturday March 7TH 10 A.M TO 3:00 P.M.
This is a hands on clinic. You will be learning saddle fitting the only way possible….by putting your hands up under the saddles on moving horses so you can learn how movement affects saddle fit since we don’t ride a motionless horse.
You will learn about saddle trees and the do’s and don’t on specific body types.
This instruction is to teach you the 7 areas of saddle fit that you as an owner or trainer need to be aware of so as to avoid issues with your horse that may have been decided/claimed a “training issue” or an “attitude issue” with your horse and in actuality it was a saddle fitting issue. Trainers have been struggling with a way to deal with saddle pain affecting training for too long, folks. So I encourage all trainers to attend this clinic to get properly educated in this area of “natural horsemanship” so as to improve your results with less setbacks and frustrations. I have been a trainer most of my adult life and therefore am qualified to teach you how to diagnose symptoms on each horse from a trainers perspective.
I will be available to counsel specifically with trainers following the clinic.10 Areas of Saddle Fitting to be covered in the clinic.1) DEFINING THE 5 AREAS of tree fit plus 2 more that have to do with leather application.
2) WHAT IS TWIST AND ROCKER/BOW HOW THIS AFFECTS YOUR HORSE
3) WIDTH AND BAR/RAFTER ANGLE ARE 2 DIFFERENT THINGS, and how to determine what is needed for each horse.
4) WHAT RIGGING PLACEMENT DOES TO SADDLE FIT- because Its not what you have been taught
5) WHAT LENGTH SADDLE CAN BE PUT ON A HORSE WITHOUT HINDERING MOVEMENT.
6) HORSE CONFORMATION AND SADDLE FIT
7) HOW INCORRECT SEAT SIZE AFFECTS YOUR HORSE AND SADDLE FIT.
8) DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE GOOD DRY SPOTS?
9) HOW TO TELL IF YOUR SADDLE PADS HAVE COMPRESSED & S/B REPLACED.
The horses and their saddles that are “hauled in” will be used in this clinic for demonstration.PLEASE BRING THE SADDLE, CINCHES AND PADS USED ON “HAUL IN” HORSE. BE PREPARED TO RIDE.
I CAN ACCOMMODATE 5 HORSES.
STALL PROVIDED DURING THE CLINIC.TIME: 30 MINUTES TIME ALLOWED PER HORSE TO DIAGNOSE YOUR HORSE AND SADDLE FIT ISSUES ~THEN DISCUSS THEM WITH THE GROUP~ AND ~ IF IMMEDIATE RELIEF CAN BE FOUND I WILL RESOLVE THE ISSUES THRU PADDING/RIGGING ADJUSTMENTS OR SHIMS.
*If your issue cannot be resolved in class. I will finish your fitting immediately following the clinic. Participants will be welcome to stay and watch if desired.
The long term benefit of this education is: You can take the skills you have been taught back to your other horses and their saddles to determine saddle fit at no additional cost to you since you now have been given the opportunity to “own” the skills.
This education has been long overlooked but is the foundation of your riding career unless you ride bareback!

THIS PHR SADDLE PAD IS $310.00 and comes in all the colors.
The Saddleright pad climbed to the top of my list for pads in 2011 & has maintained #1 to date! It is definitely an impressive pad with a guarantee that can’t be beat! You will NEVER have to purchase another pad in your lifetime! SADDLE-RITE pad cost new is $269.00 PLUS $25.00 shipping. We use this pad for a gelding with a traumatic shoulder injury and he performs better with this pad than any other I have tried. The unique material does the absolute best job at snowshoeing the saddle and rider over the length of the pad. The saddle and rider literally levitate over the horses back while maintaining close contact! AMAZING! Occasionally I have riders over 300lbs that come for lessons or put their horse in training. Horses need special padding to enable them to carry these riders comfortably. SaddleRight builds a pad for this purpose! Horses with a “roachback” or exposed spine need special consideration in that area. I designed it & SaddleRight builds it! The company also offers a lifetime guarantee no matter who owns it!
