SADDLE PRESSURE TESTING

A horse cannot perform optimally and utilise its back correctly if there is pain caused from an ill-fitting saddle. This is the point of contact between your weight
and your horse so a huge amount of emphasis needs to be placed on ensuring that you have the best fitting saddle for your horses shape as well
as your weight and riding style.

SADDLE PRESSURE TESTING

 

Saddle fitting is done using various methods and a well trained eye can fit a saddle well but has its limitations.
This method provides scientific evidence to make sure you know exactly what is happening on your horses back.

The Tactilus Equestrics® sensor is a matrix-based tactile surface sensor that works by the principle of piezoresistance. Tiny sensing cells cover the entire surface
area of the sensor “skin” allowing for discrete spot pressure analysis at any point in the contact region.

The Tactilus Equestrics® sensor provides real-time data showing precisely where the pressure points occurs between the saddle and the horse.
