This thing is just too intriguing for words! As with all things new, there will be naysayers and skeptics. I’m one myself. But here’s the thing that I think I forget sometimes: My chiropractor teachers told us that just because the animals don’t speak your language doesn’t mean they are not talking. You just aren’t listening. You think you know your horse and his quirks until something that you change makes you realize that it’s not the horse with the quirks. Quirks are just compensation for the rider not getting through with his message. This saddle feels like a translator. And, if you are listening, the horse is telling you what he’s hearing. It’s a revelation. You just never know what will cross your path when all you want to do is improve your horse’s life, even if you are not quite sure it needs improving. Something is just nagging at you, so you go searching.
