. The mission of the Master Saddlers Association™ (MSA) is to educate horse owners and riders about proper saddle-fit, to protect the well being of the horse, and to set professional standards for saddle-fitters. The MSA certification program consists of 2 - one week intensive classroom training sessions as well as hands-on instructions. While the principles of saddle fit are common between all saddles, how they actually apply varies between different types of saddles. There is very little information about how western saddles should fit and function originating from people whose background and experience is primarily with western saddles. Coming from Rod and Denise Nikkel, experienced and well respected western saddle tree makers, Western Saddle Fit - The Basics will answer that question. . . . . .
