About This Event

The course is open to all fully qualified, practising and trainee saddlers, saddle fitters, saddle designers and saddle makers. It will look at the practical aspects of applied biomechanics and anatomical principles of movement related to the horse’s back and head. It will take an in-depth look at the structure and function and relate it to way of going and saddle and bridle fit. The course is illustrated with slow-motion video of painted horses showing exactly what is happening under the skin. There will be plenty of discussion and hands-on participation. The course is a mix of theory and practical observation. It will look at common back problems experienced by horses and provide a great opportunity for discussion with like-minded saddlery professionals. There will also be a number of anatomical models and specimens available to study and we will discuss a range of saddle and bridle styles and designs.
