For Saddle Fitters

MSFI provide a community for saddle fitters all over the world.

 

Our services include providing support for newly qualified saddle fitters and arranging continuous professional development for our more experienced members.

 

As well as supporting our members we also take steps to improve and enhance the saddle fitting knowledge available. We do this by spearheading research projects and working closely with other equine professionals to continually advance the world of saddle fitting.

For Equine Professionals

Saddle fits plays a vital role in the overall welfare and performance of the horse which is why we invite all equine professionals to join the MSFI as professional affiliates members.

 

Vets, physiotherapists, farriers and instructors are becoming increasingly aware of the implications of poor saddle fit and out affiliate membership package enables these professionals to access the knowledge and resources to gain a full and up-to-date understanding of saddle fit.
