The Saddle Research Trust was founded in 2009 to promote the welfare of the ridden horse by raising awareness of the widely underestimated issues surrounding the interactions between horse, saddle and rider, by educating and informing the stakeholders within the equine industry – Riders, coaches, horse owners, professional healthcare practitioners, saddle professionals and other welfare organisations and by supporting scientific research, the translation of scientific research, and the dissemination of information.
Trust Director, Dr Anne Bondi BHSI was awarded a doctorate in 2017 for her novel research of horse, saddle and rider interaction. She teaches world-wide, giving lectures and presentations to a wide range of groups including equine healthcare practitioners, saddle fitters, coaches and equine science students, sharing her passion for this complex but fascinating subject.
