As an equine professional and educator, Bob Schneder has been a horseman practically his entire life. His experience and affinity for saddle fitting have instilled a mantra he uses to approach every client, “If we get the geometry right, then the physics works”.
Realizing the importance of saddle fit in relation to the structure and movement of each individual horse and rider pair working together is crucial to achieving fluid communication.
As a young rider, Bob’s first paying job at 9 years old was breaking ponies for child rides. An early start writing procedures for an electrical engineering company gave Bob a foundation for appreciating details and how things function.Starting to show horses at just 11 years old, he continued for the following 50 years. During this time, he was involved in training, farriery and acted as a saddle fitting instructor for both english and western disciplines.
Bob has also been involved in other sectors of the equine product industry such as designing saddle fitting pads and selling trailers and various equine equipment.
Saddles are one of the biggest and most important investments for equestrians. The effectiveness and comfort of a saddle is dependent on appropriate fit on the horse’s back and the rider’s seat.
