Danny Kroetch

"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.

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.

Diane Mayes -

I threw my saddle on a starter colt yesterday and the ranch owner said I was brave using such a nice saddle on a colt...I said I bought it to use it and it's the only saddle I would put on a horse. He offered to put an old wreck of a saddle on just in case it comes off in the dirt.  I said no...my saddle fits the horse so he won't be bucking it or me off.  My first ride on him today proved correct..not a flinch from him at all. Thank you!!

Saddle Fitting for The 20th century

                      Saddle Fitting with DK Saddlery
             With Master Saddle Fitter Danny Kroetch
                            Written by Amy C. Barton
 
DK Saddlery is all about adjustability. That one word, adjustability, sums up everything that DK Saddlery believes in. Danny Kroetch is a world renowned Master Saddle Fitter and designer. The success of his saddle designs is based on the fact that an adjustable fit is incorporated into every saddle the company builds. Danny believes that saddles which do not have the ability to be fit asymmetrically to a horse’s withers cannot ever truly fit. That may sound confusing, but read on to gain a deeper understanding of saddle fit.
