The Western Horse’s Pain-Free Back and Saddle Fit Book
Veterinarian, Joyce Harman’s much-delayed book on saddle fit for the western horse was officially released today, July 2nd.
Dr. Harman’s earlier books and DVDs have clearly established her as the preeminent expert in saddle fit, but, more importantly, as someone who can make the subject understandable and accessible. Dr. Harman doesn’t unnecessarily complicate this important topic.
Dr. Harman’s newest book is the definitive reference guide on saddle fit for the western horse. From the press release:
“In this most thorough, comprehensive book Dr. Harman, veterinarian and respected saddle-fitting expert, educates the reader about the horseâ€™s conformationâ€”particularly the shape of the back, withers, ribs, and shoulders; saddle constructionâ€”the tree, bars, seat, skirts, fleece, gullet, and stirrups; and the riderâ€™s physical build. She explains how all these variables must be considered in order to keep the horse comfortable. In addition, read about correct use of saddle pads; fitting saddles for different sports such as reining, cutting, pleasure, and trail; and how to care for your horseâ€™s back, both over the short and long term.”
This is a book that should be in your library.
