  • How To Tell If Your Saddle Causes You Pain
  • Poor saddle fit can not only cause the horse pain, but it can cause pain for the rider, too. An improperly fitted saddle can cause hip, back, and neck pain for the rider as well as creating position issues such as shoulders, hips and heels out of alignment. Do you feel like you "fight the saddle" when you ride? In this video, Certified Master Saddle Fitter and Founder of Schleese Saddlery, Jochen Schleese, shows you what to look for when assessing saddle fit for the rider.

    Special thanks to: Christiane Noelting http://www.christianenoelting.com and Joanna Robson, DVM http://www.inspiritusequine.homestead.com/ for their help in making these videos!
