Today was our SADDLE/TACK FITTING CLINIC at Ouray Stables in Salida, CO.
Our group learned about horse skeletons and muscles and how the horse moves as well as compared each horse's body to how it was moving and how we would later be shimming these horses to make them comfortable. In the afternoon, we took the time to shim each horse with a partner and then practiced riding on our balance points.
We also went through bridling and how to bridle like Pat Parelli!
Tomorrow is a trail riding clinic - so today was a great way to set the horses and riders up for comfort on the trail.
