THE UK'S ONLY INDEPENDENTLY APPROVED
REMEDIAL SADDLE FITTING COURSE
Horse 1st is the UK's only remedial saddle fitting training provider with independent certification through Lantra Awards. Helping to ensure all our students gain a verifiable and respected qualification, professional insurance, and in turn instils confidence in their clients.
Our remedial saddle fitting course was established in 2011, in response to the growing demand for independent and holistic saddle fitters.
Each year we take on a limited number of students to ensure we offer unparalleled support and guidance.
Our part-theory/part-practical syllabus offers the opportunity to learn the principals of saddle fitting and the practical skills necessary to facilitate optimal comfort and performance, for both horse and rider.
New for 2020, we have expanded our modules on rider biomechanics and specialist industry technology to help our students start their careers at the forefront of an ever demanding equestrian market.
Our tutors are experienced professionals with a wealth of knowledge in a wide range of topics from anatomy & physiology, behaviour, rehabilitation, saddle fitting & design for both the human and equine subject.
With previous careers as athletes and professional riders, our tutors are able to support and educate students for careers in both the leisure and elite sport industries.
New for 2021, we have top guest lecturers offering their valuable insight when assessing horses, riders & saddles.
We are pleased to announce the addition of intensive day courses. This will bring the scope of our teaching to a wider audience in the form of CPDs for the committed equine professional and now also the dedicated horse owner.
