Gini & Dean Woodward from Saddle Exchange will be providing us with an informative Saddle Fit awareness clinic. There is much misinformation out there about saddles and saddle fitting and this clinic is one they have been running in Europe for some time.
Gini & Dean are very experienced, MSFC qualified saddle fitters who travel the UK and Europe fitting saddles for all types of horses and ponies. They fit saddles to several national team horses.
The MSFC Qualification is the highest saddle fitting qualification in the world, the diploma from Utrecht Veterinary University. To get this qualification they had to learn about physiology, Biomechanics and Pathology which is an amazing knowledge to have to fit sad…dles. They are also members of the MSFC Society and support the Saddle Reasearch Trust and are involved in research into the whole subject of saddle design and their fitting.
It promises to be a very interesting and informative evening with a Powerpoint presentation showing what we need to know and be aware of to ensure our horses can work to the best of their ability. There will also be discussion time and then some hands on demonstration time with a couple of demo horses.
Tickets will be limited to 20 so that there is time for everyone to get involved. £10 each.

Refreshments will be available.
The following day (At a different venue, to be confirmed) we will be running a Saddle MOT clinic where you can bring along your own horse and saddle/s. This will be £40 per horse and this is a chance to have your saddle thoroughly checked.
