"My Goal is to eliminate discomfort for both horse and rider thereby maximizing performance by increasing freedom of movement”
Dan Kroetch is a Master Saddle Fitter who travels widely throughout North America, Europe and Asia conducting saddle fitting clinics and giving lectures on the proper fitting of saddles. Dan has a reputation for being able to fit the most difficult horses and his specialty lies in his ability to help those horses that are experiencing pain from their existing saddles.
In conjunction with Academy Bartels, Dan was invited to take part in a 15-month study with Utrecht Veterinary University in the Netherlands on how ill fitting saddles affect the horse's movement. The findings were published in 2004.

Put in the living room in front of my wife's Steinway grand, seems fitting art next to art!

DK Cutter Saddle - Cory McAllister - Cinch Performance Horshmanship

Well very pleased to let everyone know that DK Sponsored Rider (and son) Cory McAllister just had a fabulous weekend in Smithers BC competing in a trainers challenge.  There were 3 trainers and 3 unbroke - straight out of the field 2 year old quarter horses.  Cory drew a chestnut filly.  She turned out to be the toughest of the bunch.  Very touchy/waspy as well as having a real red headed attitude!  He did a fabulous job.  What was most interesting is Cory's filly was the only one that would stand for saddling and mounting.  The others got worse as the sessions went by.  Cory's never experienced pain from the saddle, a DK Cutter.  Cory was able to adjust the bars of his saddle so it didn't pinch or put pressure in the wrong area. Cory didn't win the competition but did win the finals hands down. c here

Julia came out to adjust my new saddle last night.  I told her after 3 years of trying saddles on my poor mares back I should have just bought the damn DK.  She laughed and told me to tell you "Should have just bought the damn DK" new tagline for you LOL.  Loving it!

Thanks from Cynthia Vossenberg

Just wanted to send a note for taking the time to fit my used DK Saddle on my horse Lucy at Stonehaven Farm this past June. I am a student of Joanne Bouwhuis.  My equine chiropractor and my equine massage contact cannot believe the difference in her back. Thanks again.  Cynthia Vossenberg

Just wanted to let you know how fantastic my horse is going after you fitted his saddle.  It is like I have a whole new, younger, energetic horse.  I enjoyed all the knowledge you shared too.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart (and my horses too)!

Wanted to let you know we love our saddles.  We have a total of 15 saddles, 5 are Freedoms and 10 are Bonds.  They have greatly improved the position of my students riding and the horses are so much freer!  Love 'em, Thank you.
