Leading academics Dr Russell MacKechnie-Guire of Centaur Biomechanics, Dr Kathryn Nankervis from Hartpury University and Dr Jorn Cheney of the Royal Veterinary College and Southampton University came together at Saddlers’ Hall to share their findings with leaders and professionals in the equestrian and saddlery sectors. Their groundbreaking research into horse – saddlery – rider interactions focuses on the best fit to deliver optimal comfort and welfare for the horse. Their applied research is being brought into practice amongst those committed to professional standards in the industry; and in particular those that work in Multi Disciplinary Teams caring for equines. The research programme is funded in part by the Saddlers’ Company Charitable Fund.
Their findings will shortly be published to those that are members of a recognised professional body so that manufacturers, retailers and fitters of the best of British saddlery are able to access the data and review the key conclusions. This is part of a wider initiative by the Saddlers’ Company and others in the sector to support the British saddlery trade and all those that conform to good practice in the equestrian world.
