Riding on Air and other Uplifting Innovations in Saddle Design

In a very literal sense, the saddle is the only thing that comes between you, your horse and the best possible ride.

His articles are the most complete about the subject I’ve ever seen. Very valuable for me to learn about saddle fitting as a rider and veterinarian. We treat a lot of back problems, most of them due to the saddle. Jochen is not only a great master of saddle fitting, but someone who really cares about horses. It was a privilege to work with him.
