Saddle Fit for Horse and Rider
TheHorseStudio.com Copyrighted Review:
This 3 DVD set is a fresh blast on the technical side of saddle fit and the health and well-being of both horse and rider. The esteemed Dr. Wade Tenney of Tufts University provides up to date information for the equestrian on medical analysis of the horse’s back and treatments. A surprising array of new methods of handling everything from kissing spines to supra-spinous ligament damage. There is ‘hands-on’ valuable advice presented in a down to earth manner from saddle designer Ron Friedson. His no-nonsense approach was refreshing indeed. It’s nice to know that we don’t necessarily need to spend the earth on a custom made saddle and interesting to note that buying used tack can become more expensive than buying new.
Fitting every variety of horse/pony shapes and sizes is thoroughly addressed and Ron Friedson throws in lots of interesting history lessons for no extra charge. Very engaging. All disciplines are also discussed and there is more cross over between them than you might think.
Abigail Nemic, Director of Equine Studies at Post University posed some great questions and demonstrated how to ride a wider horse with a shorter stirrup to keep your seat correctly positioned and how to sit in just about every saddle imaginable and helped Ron Friedson test pilot several horses and saddles.
Our The Horse Studio team, who consider themselves experienced horse folk were very impressed with the content and everyone came away with more confidence in caring for their horse’s saddle needs.
Care of tack and the use of a variety of saddle pads are also covered. Additionally Mark Rarrick aptly presents the trainer’s perspective on the saddle fit topic.
While there is plenty of information out there regarding saddle fit and a wealth of advice on saddle fitters and the benefits of custom made saddle and special saddle pads and the like this DVD delivers a tome of knowledge that every rider truly should know. Saddle Fit for Horse and Rider provides valuable insight that brings you up to date on the trends, the practicalities of what to choose, how to fit not just the horse but also the rider.
This is four hours of education on 3 DVD discs that will enhance your understanding of saddle fit and most importantly will certainly address questions you might have regarding your horse’s possible behavioral issues and potential soundness damage that can be deflected by having a good working knowledge of saddle fit.

A groundbreaking DVD that brings advanced equine studies right to you. We review thousands of equestrian DVDs here at TheHorseStudio.com and this DVD is without question, one of the best and most informative we've seen. It takes education to a whole other level. While this is the first in the series and focuses on the horse's respiratory system, I cannot wait to see more on myriad of horse health issues that are in the works in this series also. . As the saying goes, "You don't know what you don't know," but after viewing this DVD you will. Advanced Equine Studies provides a superb insight into keeping your horse fit and healthy. It is like going to vet school without the fees or having to figure out how to get in. As a horse owner and serious dressage competitor for over 40 years I thought I had a pretty good handle on all things respiratory in horses. Wrong. There was lots of keen information here. I have owned and competed horses whose outcomes and successes would definitely have been improved if I had this depth of knowledge. If I'd seen it before I had designed my barn there are definite changes I would have made to the plans too. Thanks to Mouse Hole Productions for bringing us this wealth of information. The material is advanced but is highly approachable. And, there is a lot of it. A fantastic resource for every horse owner, vet tech and college vet student. I thank you and so do my horses present and future for giving us access to this advanced level of medical knowledge.
