“My interest in saddle fitting started over 25 years ago when I struggled to find a saddle to fit both me and my horse. I could find no clear career path to become a saddle fitter but I have always been aware of the importance of a well fitting saddle. It was a real joy to meet Dean and Gini and discover the huge range of Saddle Exchange saddles and enjoy their training and guidance. I was immediately impressed at how well the saddles fit the horses and that Saddle Exchange fitters make a long term commitment to finding the right saddle solution for both horse and rider.
I look forward to helping horses and riders all over Scotland find an answer to their saddle fitting needs.”
