Saddlefit 4 Life (S4L) is a global network of equine professionals working together for horse and rider to prevent long term back damage resulting from poorly fitting saddles. The S4L Academy has online courses and modules to train both Equine and Saddle Ergonomists - the epitome of education in saddle fitting! Jochen Schleese's best-selling book "Suffering in Silence: The Saddle Fit Link to Physical and Psychological Trauma in Horses" is used as the basis for the curriculum, not only at the S4L Academy, but globally in other saddle fitting institutions. The S4L curriculum is being taught to veterinary schools on five continents, and will soon be offered as an online elective at the University of Guelph for the Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management Degree. The S4L philosophy is the basis for the Schleese 80 point diagnostic saddle fit evaluation program and will change your mindset!
