The Horse's Pain Free Back and Saddle Fit Book Joyce Harman.
The Horse's Pain Free Back and Saddle Fit Book Joyce Harman.

Ensure soundness and comfort with back analysis and correct use of saddles and pads. Renowned practitioner and author Joyce Harman DVM, MRCVS. We also carry her DVDs on saddle fitting. review: So very often overlooked, this is part of you and your horse's welfare. I can't tell you how many times I've been to try a horse and found his saddle perched across his scapula or pinching his withers, the horse sore in front feet and shoulders, busy in his mouth and distinctly unhappy. So, the horse becomes available for sale. And perhaps the rider has been dumped terra firma meanwhile...In this book Joyce Harman ( who I think is pretty awesome) delivers to us all concrete advice that we can easily follow for correctly fitting any saddle. I learned stuff here - for e.g. when you use a saddle on multiple horses ( because I have short legs and need the extra short flap and just can't afford to put a different saddle on every horse I workout with ), how do you accommodate multiple horse use?

What is the seat bone to stirrup bar relationship? I know I have a favorite saddle because I don't have the fight the tack to maintain a correct and elegant position, but how can I ensure when I purchase another saddle it'll be right? Of course it's not all about us - but when the saddle fits both horse and rider the horse works in a lighter footfall, the work is easier for both of us. So much to learn here e.g. how to measure a horse's back, how to care for his back, how to stabilize your seat and balance, how to sensibly use pads or shims, and how to locate that right saddle. Absolutely essential reading....your horse will thank you and will stay sounder longer and your visits to the chiropractor and acupuncturist, massage therapist will be reduced. Super read.

As instructors say, " Advance two years in your training by correctly fitting a saddle for both your horse and yourself." True indeed.
