Horses, Saddles and Riders with Free Document Download
Titled ‘Horses, Saddles and Riders – Applying the Science’, the document was co-written by four researchers who presented studies at Great Britain’s Saddle Research Trust (SRT) 2nd International Conference, held in November 2014:
- Professor Hilary Clayton, BVMS, PhD, DACVSMR, MRCVS
- Researcher/clinician Sue Dyson, MA, Vet MB, PhD, DEO, FRCVS
- Professor Pat Harris, MA, PhD, DipECVCN, VetMB, MRCVS
- SRT Director Anne Bondi, BHSI
Too often insufficient attention is paid to ensure well-fitted saddles which leads to numerous back issues for the horse, so we recommend this download for more information from the experts in this field and welcome the bringing together of the research and studies.
The document details the research undertaken, along with results, recommendations, diagrams and photographs.
The Saddle Research Trust was founded in 2009 to promote the welfare of the ridden horse and to raise awareness of the widely underestimated issues surrounding saddles, equine backs and performance.
The SRT 3rd International Conference will be held on Saturday 2 December 2017.
