Dave Collins is the founder and principal of the BC College of Equine Therapy in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada. Dave has spent his entire life around horses. For almost two decades, Dave has provided therapy for people, horses and other animals. In 1995, Dave founded the BC College of Equine Therapy, which offers a two-year program to teach the fundamentals of Equine Therapy.

Of the thousands of horses Dave has worked with, ill-fitting saddles have been a major contributor to movement problems, unsoundness and training problems. It is through his research and practical approach to saddle-fit problems that horses and riders enjoy a better relationship.

A horse's back changes shape with age, fitness level, weight, etc.
