Horse Racing/improper saddling


hello sir, i believe that improper saddling leads to shoulder problems in horses

hi--- i do not think that putting the saddle on wrong will cause shoulder problems. there is only one way to put the saddle on, so it will move into the correct position when the horse walks, trots, or gallops. the jockey saddle is so light that it would not bother the horse unless you do not tighten the girth and over girths before the horse races.. thanks ED HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
