This hands-on educational session will teach you the basics of assessing saddle fit, both English & Western saddles.

After a brief presentation, you will have the opportunity to assess static saddle fit on a variety of horse types using several different saddles. You will also learn what to look for when purchasing a used saddle and how to assess fit to ensure a saddle fits you well & why that is as important as the saddle fitting your horse well. Clinician Fran Cilella of The Animated Horse Equine Massage and Bodywork is trained in saddle fit assessment and equine bodywork. Learn more about Fran at theanimatedhorse.com
