The approach to fitting (including remedial saddling), together with the saddle designs that LM Saddle Consultants use, help horses acquire and keep good healthy muscle development. This in turn benefits their general comfort, well-being, and performance.

Over the years Lavinia personal interests with her horses have changed from competing at Endurance Riding, to Equine Behaviour and psychology, Classical Riding and training, along with what is generally known as ‘Natural Horsemanship; though she prefers to think of it just as good ‘Horsemanship’ skills. She has a keen interest in all aspects of riding, training and welfare of the horse, both physical, mental and emotional. This is shared by all LM Approved Consultants that Lavinia works closely with.

Lavinia would be happy to discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have.

Please note: Lavinia has recently retired from Consulting and is not taking on any new clients.  Lavinia is focusing her time on the delivery of training for new LM Saddles consultants around the UK and Europe.
