Amy Coupland

CEE Graduate

I won’t be able to look at a horse, rider or saddle again in the same way!

Saddlefit4life has completely changed my life and allowed me to learn so much more already than ever imagined, baring in mind that what I have learned already is only a fraction of information that's out there to learn. I won’t be able to look at a horse, rider or saddle again in the same way!

One of the most eye-opening experiences of my horse career

Becoming a CEE was one of the most eye-opening experiences of my horse career. I now have a thorough grasp on the multitude of variables that contribute to a well-fitted saddle all backed by science. With this skill, I plan to help other people who, like me, are looking for a way to remove the barriers of communication and improve their riding partnership.

Lara van den Berge

CEE Graduate

Now I have become obsessed and driven to help find solutions

At first, before I did the course, I thought I was passionate about helping horse and rider and I signed up, but now I have become obsessed and driven to help find solutions to the problems that we face in the saddle and on the horse.
