Eva Gifford

Eva Gifford has been studying English saddle fit for 30 years.  She has been refining her skills at judging the pressure distribution of different fits by working with Port Lewis Impression pad for the past four years.   After months of struggling to find the right fit for new 4-year-old dressage prospect, she traveled to Canterbury England to study with Master Saddler David EvaGriffonKempsell in August of 2016.  She is certified to fit Flair and WOW saddles.  Eva believes that almost all “bad” equine behaviours are really just the horses’ reaction to pain.  When the rider can ride in balance and the equipment fits properly, problems under saddle just melt away.   Eva has developed a system for the average rider to evaluate their own saddle fit when expert help is not available.
