Words from Lone Bang, Bang Dressage

“Through my work as a professional dressage rider I have super good experiences with SCHARF Freedom dressage belt. The first time I tried the SCHARF Freedom belt was on a horse that had been a bit locked in its movement pattern with rider, and at the same time also prone to belt cramps. I could really felt a difference when the horse was much more loose and not at all as tense as before. It was fun to feel that difference because of a girth. Today I use the SCHARF Freedom girth on a lot of horses and it is amazing”
