Upcoming Saddlefit 4 Life®Training Courses

Saddlefit 4 Life® is thrilled to announce that Russell Guire (of www.centaurbiomechanics.co.uk) has offered to host a two-day introductory Equine Ergonomics course featuring Certified Master Saddler Jochen Schleese this November 29-30 at his facility in Warwickshire. This will be the first part of our professional development seminars, with the potential to continue towards certification as an equine ergonomist, including a practical internship. From there applicants have the possibility to proceed by invitation to become Certified Saddle Ergonomists, which includes further training in stitching, flocking, fitting, and tree adjustments. The cost of this initial two day intro course is $397USD which includes lunch. This fee may be credited toward either of the following courses: the next level either in Florida from Jan 22-26, 2016 (with the possibility to extend to Feb 5 if mutual interest exists to continue training as a Saddle Ergonomist) or in Germany April 2-6, 2016.

If we are to turn the tide in a direction that honors the horse in and out of competition, it will be through the joint effort of a committed few like Jochen who lead the way and provide a path for others to follow. If we meet the needs of the horse, the horse will generously give back.
