Equine Professional

"I attended the Saddlefit 4 Life® Equine Ergonomist Training Course to obtain more information on saddle fitting.  At the time I was having some issues with my horse, who acted uncomfortable under saddle and would occasionally buck at the canter.  The course went above and beyond my expectations of what I would learn in five days.  I was able to go home, evaluate what was causing my horse discomfort, adjust the type of tack I was using, and it fixed his bucking issue on the spot! The class more than paid for itself in that moment and I have Saddlefit 4 Life® to thank for it!"
