Certified Master Saddler and Master Saddle Fitter Jochen Schleese explores the true purpose of the saddle as part of a symbiotic relationship between horse and rider. With chapters that explain the anatomy of the rider - both female and male, as well as that of children - and how the saddle should accommodate them, as well as sections devoted to the horse's biomechanics and the interaction of his structure and motion with the rider's, Schleese delves into issues that apply to all equestrian disciplines. With an eye toward improving saddle fit and horse well-being the world over, Schleese is careful to explain the ways of determining whether your saddle fits, how to find a knowledgeable saddle fitter, and finally, how to ensure your horse remains comfortable in the tack he must wear.
