Home > SUPPORT > HOW TO > Lift Your Horses Back

Understanding how high your horse can lift his/her trunk and back gives us important perspective.
We can estimate overall condition and state of training if you send us a photograph of this
movement as part of your
Free Saddle Fit Evaluation.

Then, we can help you set up your equipment to accommodate the shape your hrose becomes
when moving.

Here's an explanation of how to cause your horse to contract abdominal muscles and simulate the lift
that occurs when he/she is in natural motion. We call this the "belly tickle". You'll need a friend with a
camera to help you get this shot.
