"As an Equine veterinarian, acupuncturist and chiropractor, I have always understood the importance of a proper fitting saddle. I became a true believer, however, when Karen fitted a saddle to my own horse. He was immediately more supple, forward and happier. I could feel the push from his hind-end flow through his back as though a connection had finally been made. Karen makes my job so much easier and more rewarding. I recommend Karen Withstandley and The Refined Equine to all my clients."
Dr Christina Braun, DVM
"After Trek's saddle had been reflocked and custom fit by Karen, both the veterinarian and the chiropractor found tremendous improvement in his back. I have had two other saddle fitters work on my Albion previously, and neither were able to achieve the results that Karen managed. Both Trek and I thank you more than we can express!" Jo, Brewster NY
"My vet told me during the prepurchase exam that if I am to buy my mare, I have to call Karen to start us off right. I have had none of the trouble that my fellow boarders are experiencing with training problems or sore backs. Thanks for giving us a great starting point!" Jan, Litchfield Ct
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my new saddle. I can see Sierra's shoulders and they move with such freedom and power now. She is also more comfortable when I place the saddle on her back and tighten the girth. She is much more comfortable and happier now! Thank you so much!
