Horses cannot tell you that they are sore and what is causing their soreness. Therefore it’s the responsibility of you as their owner to determine the problem and take corrective measures to rectify it.

The first step is to contact your local ASFA Accredited Saddle Fitter to confirm if the issue is saddle fit. If your horse's soreness or behaviour is not improved after a saddle fit then the process of elimination begins. Your local ASFA Accredited Saddle Fitter can recommend other professionals to help you identify the root cause of the problem!

Possible problems you may need to address – ask your ASFA Accredited Saddle Fitter for their referral contacts!
