Brita Rizzi and Anne DeKeyser are certified independent saddle fitters located in Southern Pines, North Carolina. Our goal is not to sell you another saddle, but to determine what brand or model would work best for you and your horse. In addition to the saddles we have in stock, you are welcome to bring along new or used ones and we will give you our unbiased opinion as to which one is the best choice. We are also available to do clinics at your barn.

I am so thankful to have found Brita Rizzi to help me with fitting my hard-to-fit horses and even harder-to-fit self…since Brita has started to help me, I have found my horses moving more freely forward and happier in their work.

Computerized Saddle Pressure Testing

Sample Pressure ScanWe use this technology to determine precisely where the saddle pressures the back, enabling a comprehensive saddle fitting experience! Two screens are displayed simultaneously:

  • The first screen displays the pressure under the saddle. Pressure points will be clearly visible.
  • The second window will video tape the horse moving under saddle at the same time.
  • Slow motion playback reveals pressure distribution throughout every moment of the ride.

This system can not only scan the saddle on the horse standing, but also in full work. Saddle problems will be an issue of the past!
