Interesting article from the Saddle Research Trust (SRT) on saddle slip, rider straightness and equine lameness. I am often asked if the saddle is to blame for the back pain found and the answer is very rarely as simple as that. Most problems are multifactorial and although you must ensure your horse has regular saddle checks (I know I change shape though the seasons, so does your horse) don’t always blame the saddler if it is slipping. If you want regular updates on current research you can log on to receive updates from the SRT each times they produce results from a new study.
