Equine News: Saddle Fitting

  It has been a little while since I have written an Equine News blog post. So when I came across this video today, I figured it would be a great thing to share with all of you. The YouTube channel called Evention has uploaded a new video talking about saddle fittings that is very informative.

  The guest speaker on Evention this week is a saddle fitter for Stubben. Keith Brooks explains to Dom and Jimmie, as well as all of us, some of the biggest things to look for when choosing the right saddle. Usually, we focus on fitting the saddle to fit our horses perfectly and forget to fit it to ourselves as well. Keith shows you how to fit the saddle for you and your horse.


  This video is very helpful for those of us who need help with our saddles. Choosing the right saddle is a big topic and it is a real science. Though you can't hit all the points on fitting a saddle under twelve minutes, they do talk about some points that many of us my not have thought of.

  That's it for this Equine News blog post. For those of you who are new to the blog, the Equine News posts are not considered as part of the weekly posts. So with that said, another post will be up later this week and it will keep with the topic of saddles. Thank you for reading and I hope you are all doing well.

  Until next time, happy riding!
