You may occasionally come across people who represent themselves as Certified Equine or Saddle Ergonomists in accordance with the Saddlefit 4 Life® courses. They may use their affiliation or past training with S4L for advertising, but in fact do not follow the S4L philosophy in the products they represent. Please make sure to always check the appropriate qualifications and ask for their ID/Certification card! If a saddle fitter works on your saddle without a current and valid license, you may lose the manufacturer’s warranty.

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.
