Computerised pressure pads
Apparently there is now available a computerised pressure pad system which will enable a saddler to correctly assess whether a saddle - with and without a rider - is correctly fitting the shape of a horse's back.
Has anyone knowledge of such equipment?
Whilst obviously invaluable for a saddle fitter perhaps the same principles could be adapted to help correct a rider's seat - ie pads could be placed on top of the saddle and also on the stirrup bars to verify the riders weight distribution at halt, walk and trot.
Any comments gratefully received
