great set of videos!

Its so important to know how to do this yourself as you cannot trust saddlers to get it right all th time. I have had two horses had saddles made by master saddlers which don't fit and have injured them. Make sure you can check a saddle yourself!!

Great find! Keep up the series. Many people will learn from this very well laid out video course. From a saddle maker's view point I love it when people can learn the dos and care of the horse and rider from a proper fitting saddle. It isn't a secret. Lets teach everyone. Our own health but most of all our best friends health (our horses) and well being will be looked after. You have no Idea how many saddle fits or just barn visits I make in a year that the saddle fit not even comes close and the owner/rider doesn't understand or think it is a problem. They are either so happy to have the brand name of the saddle or that they just can't afford to buy a different one or the worst is that it was from a family member and they don't want to hurt that person's feeling. I've seen almost everything and heard it as well. Lets keep the real info out there and not a sales pitch to sell gadgets. Thank you for posting this. Video. Looking forward to review future ones and letting people know where to see it.

Really great- there is often lots of confusion about proper fit. This video makes it easy! I re-posted on my blog!
