This week we welcome Tad Coffin. Tad is the owner of Tad Coffin Performance Saddles.

He joins me on the show this week to talk about their unique saddle tree, which is the first of it's kind to be made from composite material.

Tad has created a proprietary process using carbon fiber. He has actually "invented" a process marrying two kinds of composites to create "pins" that are used in the tree to provide flexion and movement.

Tad will be discussing the benefits this provides to horses and the racing industry.
