At EquiLaterals we aim to help better understand the relationship between saddle fit and horses movement. An ill-fitting saddle contributes to direct and compensatory lower leg lameness making it a key area to improve horse welfare. A correctly fitting saddle enhances both the horse and rider’s ability to perform with accuracy, lightness, and freedom of movement.
Assess saddle designs in terms of riders position and freedom of movement of the horse.
Monitor the position of the saddle and the effect on the horse over time to identify when adjustments are needed.
Bridle development / Bit testing
Measure parameters such as head carriage, movement symmetry and freedom of movement in varying bits and bridel combinations to find the most suitable.
