Shantel has been a part of the equine world since she was 5years old, and has had a love for horses ever since. 

Her love for the Eventing scene and equine muscle development has led her to wanting true understanding of support, security and comfort of saddles throughout the different disciplines, for both the horse and rider.

Saddle fitting came into Shantels life after following her mothers footsteps as an 18year old, and she soon realised the effects that saddles can have on a horses performance and health. The more she learnt, the more she drove herself to know the details of what creates the perfect connection between horse and rider without compromising the horses health. 

Shantel has learnt the process of massage therapy and is currently a fully qualified coach, which has aided her understanding in correct rider position and support.

With a big passion for saddles, horses, muscles, and rider improvement, Shantel is extremely excited to be a part of the Performance Saddlefits team, working towards her Society of Master Saddle Fitters accreditation with the support of Paula Jeffery, and will continue to work hard to further her education and knowledge with saddle fitting.
