My name is Irma Wormgoor, I live and work in The Netherlands.
Horses are my passion. Besides the fact that horses are beautiful animals, it fascinates me a lot how the horse’s body is build and works.
I tribute to the general welfare of the horse where and whenever I can.
It is essential that they can comfortably do the work we ask them to do, without giving in on their own welfare.
I am a Master Saddle Fitting Consultant (MSFC, The Netherlands) and Qualified Saddle Fitter (affiliated with the Society of Master Saddlers, SMS, UK). For years now, I have been happy with the pleasure of improving the saddle comfort for both horse and rider.
During my work as a Saddle Fitter, I see a lot of suffering, also suffering from which, in the first instance, no (clear) diagnosis can be found which eventually results in long rehabilitation periods for the horse.
In 2013, I already came across with Thermography and attended courses in the Netherlands. The best education in Thermography I found last year with the EquiTherm Training Center. Recently, after completing all qualifications, I proudly received the certificate for Equine Thermographer and I would like to further develop myself and contribute in this field of work.
The Equine world is developing constantly. That's why I kept and keep on schooling myself in the field of saddles, Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics of horse and rider. And now, certainly also in terms of Thermography.
