Finding the right fit for horse and rider challenges me daily
Master Saddle Fitting Consultant
Horses are my passion
Ever since I was a little girl I was passionate about horses. Horses and their well being have been very important to me. A partnership built on trust and fun where the horse offers freely gymnastic exercises and pain doesnt exists. Where horse and rider have fun together.
I’ve seen a lot after many years working with horses, on amateur as well as professional level. Unfortunately many horses are still ridden under less desirable circumstances, performing on high level in ill fitting tack.
I got the opportunity to learn about saddle fitting and I wanted to know everything about this fascinating topic, so I enrolled for the education: Master Saddle Fitting Consultant. I can now say after certain amount of years of experiences, where and what should be changed in the combination of saddle – rider – horse, to obtain more synergy and harmony.
Finding the balance between top sport and horse’s well-being keeps challenging me
The moment I turned 18, I bought my own horse, and our journey is still growing strong ever since and through him I learned to listen and understand horses more and more. I started with my young horse from a natural horsemanship approach. We focused on connection and communication, riding bitless and bareback, and understanding body language and horse expressions.
In 2008 I decided I wanted to learn the real deal and left to Spain to work on a gigantic horse breeding farm, not knowing I wasn’t going to come back ever! From this moment onward my horse career got more professional and I started to get eager to always learn more.
Together with my life partner (an International ***** showjumper, coach and very knowledgeable horseman) we lived 4 years in Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE. Training and riding in competitions like The Arab League, Longines Tour and GCT. After this period we moved to Morocco and we began to build our own business; TIBO Equestrian (2013).
In 2017 we decided we wanted to locate ourselves in Spain and build up our own facilities from scratch. Now 2020 we’ve built our own paradise in Alzira, Spain. A stable area with 10 horseboxes, with individual outdoor paddocks connected to the stalls. An arena 30x60m silica with micro fibres and most importantly grass meadows and paddocks for the horses in Spain!
Our facilities at TIBO Equestrian are always open for clients to come with their own horse(s) and have a consultation at our location in Alzira.
