As a result of the increasing interest in the subject of saddle fitting, the Society of Master Saddlers commissioned Take One Productions Ltd. of Horsham, West Sussex, to produce a video entitled "Saddle Fitting Explained", which is available from the Society office.
The DVD is designed to make the horse-owner aware of the importance of a correctly fitted saddle - a saddle that is comfortable for both horse and rider - enabling the full potential of the chosen discipline to be realised.
Presented by Alice Plunkett, with contributions from Jeremy Michaels and William Fox-Pitt, the video includes a brief history of man's relationship with the horse, a description by Stewart Hastie MRCVS of the horse's skeleton and moves on to show the construction of the saddle and explain the factors that control its correct fitting.
The DVD is available for £10.95 including postage in the U.K. It runs for approx. 25 minutes.
If you would like a copy of the DVD please contact the SMS office on 01449 711642 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
