Wellington, Fla. - May 14, 2018 - On April 28 - 29, Trilogy Performance Saddlery hosted a successful educational seminar dedicated to its saddle fitting experts. Open only to Trilogy's certified saddle fitters, the 2-day seminar included lectures on veterinary medicine, salesmanship and equestrian marketing. Founded by Debbie Witty, a qualified saddle fitter from the Society of Master Saddlers in England, the company is a leader in saddle design and manufacturing that provides top quality products through education, service and design.
While developing her company, Witty recognized the need and value for on-going educational opportunities to help fitters improve their understanding and skill-build in proper shimming techniques, saddle construction as well as variety of relevant equestrian business aspects.
"Here at Trilogy Performance Saddlery, we pride ourselves on producing the best dressage saddles on the market and having a team of highly trained saddle fitters," Witty explained. "Our fitters are a vital part of our team so it is crucial that they receive as much training and educational support to ensure that our company continues to be at the forefront of the market."
Participants traveled from across the country to Stillpoint Farm in Wellington, Florida, eager to expand their knowledge over the extensive workshop. The first day consisted of introductions and discussions on the topics of myofascial release, saddle effects on the spinal cord, proper shimming techniques and high-quality saddle construction.

"Our seminar is just one way that Trilogy demonstrates an ongoing commitment to fully educating fitters," explained Megan Dischler, a certified Trilogy saddle fitter from Wisconsin. "Educational opportunities like this help us to hone our skills and learn new ones. As a fitter I have the fullest confidence that I am helping both horse and rider to be comfortable and happy in their work."
