One of the most important things for a happy horse is a proper fitting saddle. We offer consultations, help choosing a new saddle and assessment of saddle fit. It is important to note that we focus on how the saddle fits the horse. The rider and trainer can best determine how the saddle fits the rider—you’ll know from the comfort level if your saddle is right for you. But because your horse can’t talk, it’s harder to determine if the saddle fits him, and that’s where we can help. Nikki is a certified saddle fitter - for english, western, saddleseat and sidesaddle.
Saddle fitting can be used as a maintenance activity that helps to avoid problems, much like having your horse’s teeth floated every year. With regular saddle fitting appointments, you can keep problems from developing.
A poor saddle fit can do more than just cause pain and discomfort to your horse—it can also result in poor performance, bad behavior, and training problems. You and your horse will always work better as a team when the saddle fits correctly. Nikki 815.791.5281
