I love what I've been able to learn about horse wellfare, training and saddles since I got into saddlefitting a couple of years ago.
The experience I've gained both with treeless as well as treed saddles is priceless. And the depth of understanding I've developed on how the physique of the horse influences how he responds to our requests and how he is constantly giving us feedback I could never have gained in a better way.
Training young horses and fitting saddles together have made me even more convinced that horses are innately so willing to partner up with us and that when they say no...it is ALWAYS because they feel they cannot do what we have asked.
Whether that is because it hurts him now, or it hurt yesterday, or he is scared or he doesn't understand the question.
Their innate willingness to please seriously moves me...and it is only our inability to see why they say 'no' that keeps us from progressing.
