The Pinnacle of
Saddle Fit Education

World-class Saddle Fit Education for Anyone

 Saddlefit 4 Life Academy offers students of any background the opportunity to learn anatomically correct saddle fitting for both the horse and rider. With evidence-based education you will develop a deep understanding of both how  and why a saddle should fit. 

Unlike any other saddle fitting course available today, our Certified Equine Ergonomist program will give you the knowledge and process to accurately evaluate any saddle, regardless of discipline. In addition, you will understand how to measure both the horse and rider through an 80+ point evaluation to determine their unique needs.
