This is a four day course intended for saddlers who have gained their City & Guilds Level 2 and/or 3 Saddle Making qualifications.
Including Panel Adjustment and Alteration
The objective is to increase skills and knowledge in the adjustment and alteration of saddle panels of differing types and also to show other methods of achieving a well-fitting saddle. The course will consist of three days in the workshop, candidates are encouraged to bring saddles with them that may be worked on and discussed with other candidates on the course. It is hoped that many differing types of saddles, panels and trees will be seen throughout the course. The fourth day will be spent fitting saddles to horses and candidates will have the opportunity to put all of the skills and knowledge gained into practice by carrying out reflocking and adding flocking to existing saddles and to see the differences in fit that may be achieved.
