Kay Humphries has spent most of her life with horses and was taught the art of saddle fitting at an early age. A car crash in 1971 put an end to her own hopes for a riding career and heralded a major change of direction. With her husband and friends she bought a saddlery shop and originally employed others to fit customers' saddles. But people began to ask for Kay in person, and now, by popular demand, she is fully occupied travelling and fitting saddles all over the world. She has lectured on saddle fitting in the UK, Europe and the USA. Kay currently specializes in saddles for horses with severe remedial problems, working closely with vets and chiropractors.
