“An informative and interesting read—one that’s sure to have you checking out your saddle the next time you prepare to put it on your horse.”
Is your horse suffering from:
- Tree points impeding the movement of the shoulder blades?
- A too narrow gullet channel damaging the muscles and nerves along the vertebrae?
- Too long panels putting harmful pressure on the reflex point in the loin area?
Are you suffering from:
- Slipped discs?
- Bladder infections?
Certified Master Saddler and Saddle Ergonomist Jochen Schleese is committed to finding new ways to ensure the health, comfort, and performance of horses and their riders.
