Registration has opened for a Zoom webinar looking at the fascinating but often overlooked subject of bridle fit.
Organised by World Horse Welfare, “Bridle fit – why getting it right is so important” will see Dr Rachel Murray consider the design and fit of a bridle and how that affects the comfort of the horse and how they perform. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, 1 June at 7 pm.
Dr Rachel Murray is a highly experienced veterinary surgeon based at Rossdales Diagnostic Centre. She previously spent more than 20 years at the Animal Health Trust where she was responsible for the Equine MRI diagnostic service, ran the orthopaedic research group and provided a clinical service focused on imaging, poor performance and rehabilitation in sport horses.
She will be joined by Di Fisher, a Society of Master Saddlers Master Saddle Fitter and Bridle Fitter. Both presenters will be on hand to answer any questions participants may have on bridle fit and design.
World Horse Welfare said: 'Rachel joins us for the webinar and will talk us through some of the key anatomical points that we need to consider, explaining the issues that can be' caused by a bridle that is unstable, or that puts too much pressure on the horse's head.'
