Show Me Saddle Fit

  • Introduction to Saddle Fit is a course that looks at 6 ingredients of saddle fit.  Anatomy, Gravity, Horse, Saddle, Rider and Movement are all examined and their importance in deciding the quality of the saddle’s function.  Dr. Bill Ormston is the instructor for this class.   Objective Saddle Fit is a course that shows the student how to objectively measure the fit of a saddle.  All the issues from the introduction lecture are covered.  It takes a subject that has traditionally been an objective issue and allows the chiropractor to use hard facts to see when a saddle will work with a given horse and rider.  Dr. Bill Ormston is the instructor for this class. Correcting Saddle Fit is the final portion of this offering.  The laboratory portion is all about the student being able to apply what they learned during the lectures and allowing them to make a difference in the lives of horses in their neighborhood. The doctor must work on horses in their area and send pictures and videos to Dr. O showing completion of the task in order to receive their final score.
