Equestrian Videographer Releases Enlightening Video
Solvang, CA For immediate release: New-Dawn Productions has just released
a new video called FIT HAPPENS. This is the first video
released anywhere that explains saddle fitting using a computer saddle
fitting system for validation.
saddle makers and tack shops attempt to fit saddles with baling
wire, plaster casts or thermoform plastic. The lack of any standardized
measurement systems has permitted saddle companies to develop their
own unique nomenclature that really does not relate to anything,
not even the horse.
result is absolute chaos for the saddle customer trying to find
a saddle that fits their horse. Because there is no accurate standardized
measurement, equestrians buy saddle after saddle and pad after pad,
never really finding a solution.
Perrine, Producer, Writer, and Director of the new Fit Happens
video understands this problem all to well. Dawn began riding at
the age of 11, I was given 2 untrained horses and a 75 pound
western saddle, the saddle was heavier than I was After high
school she went to Churchill Downs to apprentice as a jockey, there
werent many women jockeys is those days.
over 35 years, she has been involved in the horse industry, breeding,
training horses, Packer/guide in the Northern Rockies, Mounted Ranger
in Glacier National Park, even 3000 + endurance miles. She also
managed a tack shop and sold saddles. Been there, done that,
she says in frustration. Dawns personal struggle finding a
saddle is reflected in the story of the Fit Happens
Video. She notes, Ï have heard every story about saddle fitting,
but wheres the beef? It is all smoke and mirrors.
Fit Happens video follows an equestrian and her farrier
as they try to find a saddle that FITS. They try the
techniques they are told. In frustration, they search the Internet
and find a scientific explanation that reveals that much of what
they have been told is not true. Fortunately, they also discover
a practical solution to fitting a saddle to a horse by using three-dimensional
and computer pressure measurement.
developed the idea for this dramatary from her own experience, so
any equestrian will relate to this story. This is no powder puff
piece, she notes, there are some funny parts, but there are
some hard questions asked and some straight objective answers given.
Dawn points outs, This video is going to force the saddle
industry to step up to the plate, and prove something to their customers
when they say Trust me this saddle fits your horse.
Fit Happens will explain why the customer cannot find
a saddle that fits, but more importantly it will show how the equestrian
can protect their horse and pocket book.
movie has been a dream and a passion of mine; acknowledges
Dawn, starting while I was employed in the tack business.
I have wanted to bring out the dark secrets of the saddle
industry, admits Dawn, This video is fulfilling a longtime
dream to help the horse, and tell the truth about saddle fitting
so the equestrian can avoid hurting the horse with a saddle that
just does not FIT
