Buying a Saddle

Buying a Saddle

So you are thinking about buying a Saddle the following pages will help you decide whom to contact.

In the UK we have a number of saddle fitters covering most of the country who will come and visit you, discuss your saddle requirements and fit a saddle.

A saddle fit visit will normally last between one and two hours so that we can assess the needs of the rider and horse and give you an opportunity to test ride a saddle on a 30 minute hack. For this first visit we make a charge of £30 per horse with a travel charge of between £15 and £20. There is no pressure to purchase a saddle at the end of a visit. Once you purchase a saddle any visits for adjustments in the first 6 months are free of charge.

For countries where we have an agent, please contact them to discuss testing the Saddle but if you have any difficulties please contact us directly:

The Saddle is not difficult to adjust and fit yourself. There are detailed fitting instructions and we can help over the 'phone and e-mail. We will also be expanding the fitting information on this web site in the future.

Our Guarantee

We supply a quality product made from quality materials. The tree is guaranteed for the life of the saddle and all other parts for a period of three years with normal wear and tear.

If after 14 days you feel the saddle is not right for you or your horse then we will refund the purchase price to you, once the saddle has been returned, in good condition, to us directly or one of our agents.
