Hannah is a holistic saddler, who not only fits saddles, but helps to design them. With an awareness of performance and behavioural issues that develop through poorly fitting saddles.
Also being a ‘Ride with Your Mind’ instructor, this has helped pinpoint biomechanical issues with horse and rider.
Hannah's holistic approach not only addresses the saddle, but also the rider’s comfort, postural issues in both horse and rider, and exercises for improving muscle tone and use. Her approach has enabled her to build a very busy practice, which now extends to educating owners and equine therapists through talks and courses.
The one day saddle fit CPD course for equine practitioners includes the following:
- The parts of the saddle
- Assessing saddle for asymmetry issues and broken trees
- Panel and flocking faults
- Girthing issues
- Tree types
- Numnahs and padding
- Thoracic sling and the muscles affected by poorly fitting saddles
- Differentiating saddle issues from other issues
- Assessing horses (static and ridden)
- Assessing Saddle Fit
Students are able to get their hands on throughout, and there is time to ask questions on issues they have come across.
