Biomechanics of Western Saddle Fit – Video Download
A 2-Part Series – The Human and the Equine Dynamic
Elevating saddle fit to horse and female equestrians.
The Biomechanics of Western Saddle Fit is a two-part series encompassing the Human and Equine Dynamic. This series of videos is our latest educational offering and deals primarily with the considerations of horse and rider in Western saddle fitting while accounting for the impact of both the physical (biomechanics) and psychological aspects of the horse. Dealing with common concerns to riders, owners, and all equine professionals, this compilation of information enlightens western riders of all disciplines and levels as to the possible symptomatic causes from poor saddle fit resulting in lameness, muscle atrophy, sore backs, and unwanted behaviour.
Certified Master Saddler and Saddle Ergonomist Jochen Schleese presents his points in a clear and concise manner, working with renowned American biomechanics expert Jillian Kreinbring, M.S. to enlighten and entertain the viewer while changing the mindset regarding the status quo of western saddle fit. Part 1 deals with the human and equine dynamic in considering saddle fit, whereas part 2 delves into the classical principles of saddle fit and combines their consideration with contemporary fields of study in equine biomechanics and psychology.
Something that even our English riders can enjoy and learn from!
