All Certified Equine Ergonomists are required to complete their re-certification every 2 years (24 months) to maintain their certification and ensure adherence to the Saddlefit 4 Life philosophies and methods that have been created to protect both horse and rider from discomfort and injury resulting from improper saddle fit.
Re-Certification consists of submitting 6 client evaluations that have been completed within 6 months of beginning the course, with each evaluation accompanied by 6 photographs which are detailed in the Re-Certification Overview, along with a written test.
Students are required to complete the Re-Certification Course within 2 months of enrollment.
IMPORTANT! – Before You Enroll
Please make sure to have all documents and photos ready before enrolling in the Re-Certification Course as you will not be able to Save & Exit once you begin the online submissions. We recommend that all students familiarize themselves with the Evaluation Submission Requirements and the Certified Equine Ergonomist Online Theory prior to enrollment as each student is only allowed one attempt.
Evaluation Submission Requirements
Each evaluation must be accompanied by the following in order to be accepted for re-certification.
All images must be PNG or JPEG/JPG, the evaluation must be a single PDF file. You will be asked to upload a single ZIP folder for each evaluation containing all the necessary photos and PDFs. Any evaluations that have been photographed and not scanned will be failed immediately.
