Saddle research free to download

Research demonstrating the importance of understanding the effects of saddles and riders on the welfare and performance of the ridden horse has proved popular reading. 

Four papers, published in the Equine Veterinary Journal and Equine Veterinary Education, reporting work supported by the Saddle Research Trust were among the top 10% most downloaded articles during 2018 and 2019.

Now the original research papers have been made available free of charge by the publishers Wiley, with generous support from World Horse Welfare.
