International Academy of Saddle Fitters

The International Academy of Saddle Fitters (IASF) is a UK based organisation providing high quality saddle fitter training and education.

Traditionally saddle fitting has been approached as an add-on to the craft of saddle making (saddlery) rather than being considered its own, unique profession.

Here at IASF we recognise the individual and complex skills required to be a great saddle fitter. Skills which differ greatly from the crafting ability of a saddle maker or leather-worker.

‚Äč
Led by a team of equestrian and saddle experts IASF aim to deliver education to horse owners as well as training and developing world class , professional saddle fitters. Our courses are meticulously designed to be relevant, accessible and applicable to the changing industry while promoting a superior depth of knowledge and understanding of the horse, saddle, rider interaction.
