Introducing Computerized Saddle Pressure Testing
Jennifer Stoffer, DVM, Back in the Saddle
This class will be presented Saturday, October 23rd at 3 PM in Classroom A at the Holiday Inn Springfield, OR as a part of the ODS Fall Festival Educational Sessions
Pressure testing may:
â€¢identify subtle saddle bridging or rocking
â€¢demonstrate flocking imbalance
â€¢identify spinal contact and pressure
â€¢show how rider asymmetry causes pressure
â€¢and most importantlyâ€¦ offer peace of mind that your saddle provides maximal pressure distribution, therefore avoiding pain and injury
About the presenter: Dr. Stoffer owns â€œBack in the Saddleâ€, a veterinary saddle fitting service whose purpose is to identify and solve saddle fitting problems. This approach to saddle fitting focuses on musculoskeletal pathology, paired with the knowledge to evaluate saddle design and adjust padding and flocking to maximize weight and pressure distribution across the horseâ€™s back.
