Peter Horobin

A saddler and saddle fitter for 40 years, Peter Horobin has spent many years educating himself on saddle fitting and equine biomechanics to then incorporate this knowledge into cutting edge technology in the saddle manufacturing industry. Having an extensive knowledge of saddles and being a horseman himself, he is always continuing to lead and evolve the saddle manufacturing industry into new dimensions of engineering and design.

With a passion for horse racing not only is Peter educated in the performance world but also has the opportunity to work with professionals in the racing industry to improve and evolve the thoughts and concept of saddle fit within a racing stable. Having lectured in over 10 countries and with working relationships with many different styles of equine professionals from all over the world, Peter is an expert in the field of saddle fitting and with a simple approach endeavours to educate riders about the simple and effective tools which can be used at home to recognise incorrect saddle fit.

Education Session

Biomechanics & Saddle Fit

Saddle fitting has become so complicated and at times overwhelming and to be able to find a saddle suitable for your horse can at times be a daunting experience. With a variety of different opinions sometimes saddle fitters can provide too much information to the rider and this leaves the rider confused and wondering what to do next. There is a simple solution, being taught the biomechanics of the horse along with simple tools to take home with you are all you need to be able to identify which saddle would suit your horse. These tools allow you to not only educate yourself on the anatomy of saddles but the anatomy of the horses and how one should fit the other in a harmonic way.
