Talk Content –
• The idea of this day is to allow riders the opportunity to have a WOW Saddle fitted to your horse or pony to experience the difference that will make. So whether you would like to ride or spectate there will be opportunities for all.
• The day will begin with the opportunity for everyone to sit on a WOW saddle and appreciate the different styles available.
• We will also use a saddle horse and rider to explain how we can predict the way the horse will work from the way the rider sits
• We will discuss head plates and panels and with visual aids determine the correct fit required.
• We will use the customers horse to show where you should look for symmetry or asymmetry in the horse including shoulders, rib cage quarters and rib cage” lift” and David will describe what he is seeing in terms of musculature and how he would expect the horse to work.
• There will be educational videos to show among other things, the use of pressure testing.
• There will be a chance to sit on a saddle on a saddle horse and experience the saddle being pumped up and adjusted. Also plenty of time for Q&A
The day will run from 9.30am through into the afternoon, with the opportunity to see various horses. So whether you can pop in for a couple of hours or stay for the day, there will be plenty to see and do and a great deal of knowledge to take home.
We hope you can join us!
